The exoskeleton of the lobster Homarus
americanus as an example of a smart anisotropic biological material.
According to the Marine Science and Fisheries Centre study, it is the Panulirus homarus
, commonly known as the spiny lobster or rock lobster, that is most widely harvested, followed by another variety, known as the Panulirus versicolour.
Ontogeny of Osmoregulation and salinity tolerance in two decapod crustaceans: Homarus
americanus and Penaeus japonicus.
Examples of specific topics include the influence of intrinsic and extrinsic factors on agonistic behavior in freshwater crayfish, chemical communication and social behavior of the lobster Homarus
americanus, ecology and evolution of mating behavior in freshwater amphipods, mating strategies in isopods, sperm demand and allocation in decapod crustaceans, hermaphroditism in caridean shrimps, social behavior of parent-offspring groups in crustaceans, sociobiology of terrestrial isopods, the social breeding system of the Jamaican bromeliad crab, ecology and evolution of eusociality in sponge-dwelling shrimp, and anthropogenic stressors and their effects on the behavior of aquatic crustaceans.

americ-amis are Protected by Epibiotic Bacteria.
Large-scale and long-term, spatial and temporal patterns in demography and landings of the American lobster, Homarus
americanus, in Maine.

Similar trends in [alpha]-amylase activity were observed in larvae of the American lobster Homarus
americanus (Biesiot, 1986).
Mitochondrial DNA was cloned and sequenced from two crustaceans, Homarus
americana and Dophnia pulex.
This subfamily includes two genera known from the Lower Cretaceous, Homarus
and Hoploparia (Glaessner, 1969).
Similar negative relationships between temperature and size at maturity have been observed for other decapods including the American lobster Homarus
americanus (Campbell & Robinson, 1983) and the crayfish Procambarus clarkii (Alcorlo et al.
Items loading highest on the second component (small vessels, many vessels, lobster, Homarus
americanus; herring, Clupea harengus; and many species) indicate a fishery characterized by many small vessels, landing various species including lobster and herring.
ABSTRACT: There is virtually no information on the pelagic early life history stages of American lobster, Homarus
americanus, in the New York Bight despite the fishery for this species in the region.
