Previous work on arachnid phylogeny

On this page I've provided a list of previous authors who proposed a higher classification or evolutionary model for arachnids and their relatives. These schemes are arranged chronologically. Click on the author to see their scheme, the reference and my comments. I've used the order names as written by the authors, but I've also given the modern name in brackets where appropriate.
