An article in Friday's editions misstated the background of a biologist, the date of a lab vandalism incident and the diet of one of the spiders that he studies. Matt Persons earned master's and doctoral degrees at the University of Cincinnati, where a lab was vandalized by an animal rights group in the mid-1990s. The wolf spider is a predator that does not feed on vegetable matter and detritus in the soil.

The Sun regrets the errors.
