Shrimps are a diverse group of decapod
crustaceans, and the genus Macrobrachium (Bate, 1868) is one of the most important of freshwater Palaemonidae.
caudal photoreceptor, identified by molecular, behavioral, and physiological techniques, is not thought to exist in other malacostracan crustaceans.
This finding is surprising in light of previous studies of decapod
species from inland waters, which indicate a crepuscular feeding rhythm (Zimmermann et al.
Unfortunately, for researchers designing new experiments or monitoring programs, little information is available to help choose from the array of available condition indices that have been developed for decapod
crustaceans, whose relative precision, sensitivity, and practicality have seldom been compared under controlled conditions.
Epibiosis in decapod
crustaceans by stalked barnacle Octolasmis lowei (Cirripedia: Poecilasmatidae).
In our study, barnacles were the main food source in the summer, whereas, in the autumn and spring, red porgy depended more heavily on decapod
