Burrow Architecture of the Ghost Crab Ocypode ceratophthalma on a Sandy Shore in Hong Kong
The ghost crab Ocypode ceratophthalma (Pallas) creates burrows of variety shapes at different ages. Juveniles (mean carapace length 11 mm) produced shallow J-shaped burrows, which incline verticallyExpand
Morphological and genetic differentiation of the acorn barnacle Tetraclita squamosa (Crustacea, Cirripedia) in East Asia and description of a new species of Tetraclita
The common intertidal barnacle Tetraclita squamosa occurs in two morphologically and genetically distinct forms in East Asia. The north‐western Pacific form (Japan, Okinawa and Taiwan) has greenExpand
Zoogeography of Intertidal Communities in the West Indian Ocean as Determined by Ocean Circulation Systems: Patterns from the Tetraclita Barnacles
The Indian Ocean is the least known ocean in the world with the biogeography of marine species in the West Indian Ocean (WIO) understudied. The hydrography of WIO is characterized by four distinctExpand
Genetic differentiation, hybridization and adaptive divergence in two subspecies of the acorn barnacle Tetraclita japonica in the northwestern Pacific
Two acorn barnacles, Tetraclita japonica japonica and Tetraclita japonica formosana, have been recently reclassified as two subspecies, because they are morphologically similar and geneticallyExpand
Morphometric and molecular identification of individual barnacle cyprids from wild plankton: an approach to detecting fouling and invasive barnacle species
The present study used DNA barcodes to identify individual cyprids to species. This enables accurate quantification of larvae of potential fouling species in the plankton. In addition, it explainsExpand
Population differentiation in the barnacle Chthamalus malayensis: postglacial colonization and recent connectivity across the Pacific and Indian Oceans
Chthamalus malayensis is a common intertidal acorn barnacle widely distributed in the Indo-West Pacific. Analysis of the mitochondrial cytochrome c oxidase subunit I (COI) sequences of samples fromExpand
Worldwide genetic differentiation in the common fouling barnacle, Amphibalanus amphitrite
Amphibalanus amphitrite is a common fouling barnacle distributed globally in tropical and subtropical waters. In the present study, the genetic (mitochondrial cytochrome oxidase subunit I) andExpand
Spatial and temporal variation in diets of the crabs Metopograpsus frontalis (Grapsidae) and Perisesarma bidens (Sesarmidae): implications for mangrove food webs
The diets of the mangrove crabs, Metopograpsus frontalis Miers and Perisesarma bidens de Haan, were investigated monthly for 13 months at two Hong Kong mangroves, to examine possible spatial andExpand
Phylogeography of the cold‐water barnacle Chthamalus challengeri in the north‐western Pacific: effect of past population expansion and contemporary gene flow
Aim  Phylogeographical patterns of marine organisms in the north-western Pacific are shaped by the interaction of past sea-level fluctuations during glacial maxima and present-day gene flow. ThisExpand
