Annotated checklist of anomuran decapod
crustaceans of the world (exclusive of the Kiwaoidea and families Chirostylidae and Galatheidae of the Galatheoidea) Part II--Porcellanidae.
community was analyzed in relation to the type of rocky shore (sheltered and exposed) and to the sampling location (Anchieta and Guarapari), being AS (Anchieta: rocky shore sheltered), AE (Anchieta: rocky shore exposed), GS (Guarapari: rocky shore sheltered) and GE (Guarapari: rocky shore exposed).
The carryover effects resulting from the different periods of food limitation on early post-metamorphic development have rarely been investigated in decapod
In addition, the infection of microsporidia in decapod
crustaceans is associated with host sex ratio distortion, as revealed by correlative studies (34,21).
An updated list of decapod
crustaceans on the Turkish coast with a new record of the Mediterranean shrimp, Processa acutirostris Nouvel and Holthuis 1957 (Caridea, Processidae).
One complicated situation for decapod
larval release synchrony with dark times is that larvae of a substantial number of species are released during daytime (and nighttime) (Forward 1987, Morgan 1995, Yamaguchi 2001d, Bueno & Flores 2010, Christy 2011).
crustaceans are a group of high ecological and economic importance (Silva et al., 2004; Almeida et al., 2008).
Soyer's (24) Frequency index (Fs) was used to determine the frequency of the decapod
species in the coastal zones of the study field.
Epibiosis in decapod
crustaceans by stalked barnacle Octolasmis lowei (Cirripedia: Poecilasmatidae).
& WETZER, R., (2009).--A classification of living and fossil genera of decapod
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
The process of respiration in decapod
crustaceans takes place by drawing the water stream into the branchial chamber as it is circulated over gill surfaces where the exchange of gases occurs.
The shrimp primarily uses these 10 appendages (hence, decapod
)--known as pleopods or swimmerets--for forward locomotion.
