Accuracy and standardization of brachyuran larval descriptions
Summary There is a need for improvement and standardization in larval descriptions for them to become useful not only for identification purposes but also in comparative and phylogenetic studies.Expand
Cost-effective monitoring of organic enrichment resulting from salmon mariculture
Two methods of environmental monitoring proposed for the salmon mariculture industry are compared and contrasted on the basis of scientific and cost-effectiveness criteria: a technique based onExpand
Pockmarks influence benthic communities in Passamaquoddy Bay, Bay of Fundy, Canada
Physical characteristics of pockmarks in Passamaquoddy Bay, Bay of Fundy, Canada were measured, including depth, benthic area, sidewall slope, orientation at longest diameter and an out-of-roundnessExpand
Structure, function, and development of setae on gill-grooming appendages and associated mouthparts of pinnotherid crabs (Decapoda: Brachyura)
Gills of pinnotherid crabs are groomed by setose epipodite extensions of maxilliped mouthparts. Unlike other Brachyura, some pinnotherid genera lack epipodites on maxilliped 2. Plumodenticulate setaeExpand
Midwater cephalopods in the western North Atlantic Ocean off Nova Scotia
The midwater fauna off Nova Scotia was sampled with large pelagic trawls over bottom depths of 169-4800 m on seven cruises between August 1986 and June 1989. We identified, counted, and measuredExpand
Large-Scale Spatial Distribution Patterns of Echinoderms in Nearshore Rocky Habitats
This study examined echinoderm assemblages from nearshore rocky habitats for large-scale distribution patterns with specific emphasis on identifying latitudinal trends and large regional hotspots.Expand
ON THE LARVAL STAGES OF MACROCOELOMA DIPLACANTHUM (DECAPODA: BRACHYURA: MAJIDAE), AND A REVIEW OF MITHRACINE PHYLOGENETIC ASPECTS
Abstract Larval development of Macrocoeloma diplacanthum (Stimpson) consists of two zoeal stages, followed by the megalopa. Each larval stage is described in detail. The duration of the zoeal stagesExpand
MORPHOLOGY AND CLASSIFICATION OF DECAPOD CRUSTACEAN LARVAL SETAE : A SCANNING ELECTRON MICROSCOPE STUDY OF DISSODACTYLUS CRINITICHELIS MOREIRA , 1901 ( BRACHYURA : PINNOTHERIDAE )
Setae of the three zoeae, megalopa and first crab instar of Dissodactylus crillitichelis are described in detail from laboratory reared specimens. Scanning electron microscopy showed that setae areExpand
Phylogenetic analysis of the Pinnotheridae (Crustacea, Brachyura) based on larval morphology, with emphasis on the Dissodactylus species complex
Comparative larval morphology was used to elucidate phylogenetic relationships within the Pinnotheridae and the Dissodactylus species complex. Within the family, seven zoeal and six megalopalExpand
