In the report "Spider populations: Extraordinarily high densities on islands without top predators" by Thomas W. Schoener and Catherine A. Toft (18 Mar., p. 1353), the last sentence in the first column (continuing in the second column) of page 1355 was incorrectly printed. It should have read, "Whatever the etiology, we know of no other study showing a decline in density with distance for any species, although many studies have already shown such a decline for species number (3, 12, 13)."
