Settlement of Callinectes sapidus megalopae on artificial collectors in four Gulf of Mexico estuaries
TLDR
Numbers of settling blue crab megalopae declined with distance from the Gulf of Mexico, but still recruited in fairly large numbers well into the two estuaries where such data were available, and inter-regional comparisons of monthly settlement means during peak settlement months were robust and consistent with regional climatic controls and long-term water level patterns.
Radar Observations and Collections of Insects in the Gulf of Mexico
Infestations of insects such as corn earworm, Heliothis zea (Boddie), tobacco budworm, H. virescens (Fabricius), and fall armyworm, Spodoptera frugiperda (J.E. Smith), usually spread from southern to
A Comparative Study of Morphology and Ontogeny in Juvenile Stages of Four Western Atlantic Xanthoid Crabs (Crustacea: Decapoda: Brachyura)
TLDR
A discriminant analysis based upon setation of selected mouthparts and spination of the fifth pereopod dactyl was used to demonstrate quantitatively ontogenetic divergence in phena of the four species, reflecting the minimum expression of adult specializations in the early crab stages.
The River Shrimp Macrobrachium Ohione (Smith) (Decapoda, Palaemonidae): Its Abundance, Reproduction, and Growth in the Atchafalaya River Basin of Louisiana, U.S.A. 1)
TLDR
La recolecciones hechas en el rio prinpical y sus mayores tributarios dieron por resultado la mayor cantidad de camarones y M. ohione fue el mas abundante durante los meses de Agosto, Septiembre y Octubre.
LARVAL DEVELOPMENT OF PANOPEUS BERMUDENSIS BENEDICT AND RATHBUN, 1891 (BRACHYURA, XANTHIDAE) WITH NOTES ON ZOEAL CHARACTERS IN XANTHID CRABS
TLDR
Four zoeal stages and one megalopal stage are described and illustrated for the xanthid crab Panopeus bermudensis, and possible phylogenies for the Xanthidae are examined in the context of available larval characters.
Comparative Larval Development of Micropogon undulatus and Leiostomus xanthurus (Pisces: Sciaenidae) from the Northern Gulf of Mexico
TLDR
The principle distinguishing feature was the presence of pigment on the anterior surface of the visceral mass in L. xanthurus, and anal fin ray count was a reliable character for distinguishing larvae 7.0 mm and larger.
Comparative Larval Development of Peprilus burti, P. triacanthus and P. paru (Pisces: Stromateidae) from the Western North Atlantic
TLDR
Fossil eggs from Nanhsiung, Kwangtung and Kanchou, Kiangsi and Vertebrata PalAsiatica, 1965, and the possible calcification mechanism in some reptilian eggshells, 1959.
History of Carcinology
The papers in this volume take several forms, from strict chronologies to detailed historical analyses. Topics covered include: towards the history of pre-Linnean carcinology in Brazil the beginning
Larval and early postlarval development of Lepidopa benedicti Schmitt, 1935 (Anomura: Albuneidae) reared in the laboratory
TLDR
The complete larval development of an Atlantic Lepidopa from a known parental female is described for the first time and the entire zoeal development and the megalopa of L. benedicti is described.
