We hypothesized that glomalin-related soil proteins (GRSP) are eroded in sufficient quantities to influence metal loading into watersheds. We tested correlations among GRSP, Glomeromycota fungi, and metals (cadmium, iron, lead, and manganese) in proteins extracted from embankment soils at seven locations along an urban/coastal watershed.

Field studies with three common local species of hermit crabs,Clibanarius vittatus, Pagurus longicarpus, andPagurus pollicaris, showed that these crabs responded behaviorally to chemicals originating from crushed conspecifics. Hermit crabs are attracted specifically and in a manner similar to previously reported crab responses to odors from dead gastropods.(More)
