Checklist of the marine and estuarine Brachyura (Crustacea: Decapoda) of northern and northeastern Brazil
A total of 272 species of brachyuran crabs are reported from marine and estuarine environments in northern and northeast Brazil, and the analysis of the distribution of the species in the region allows for identification of four patterns of longitudinal distribution and six patterns of latitudinal distribution.
An updated checklist of decapod crustaceans (infraorders Astacidea, Thalassinidea, Polychelida, Palinura, and Anomura) from the northern and northeastern Brazilian coast
A checklist of the decapod crustacean species from the infraorders Astacidea, Thalassinidea, Polychelida, Palinura, and Anomura from the northern and northeastern (N/NE) Brazilian coast based on
Spatial distribution of fiddler crabs (genus Uca) in a tropical mangrove of northeast Brazil
The analysis of the second maxilliped revealed that U. leptodactyla and U. rapax show a high quantity of spoon-tipped setae while U. maracoani andU.
The fiddler crabs (Crustacea: Brachyura: Ocypodidae: genus Uca) of the South Atlantic Ocean
The taxonomy of the 11 species of fiddler crabs of the South Atlantic Ocean is reviewed, including the species recently described, and Keys for identification, updating the keys for the Atlantic Ocean are proposed.
Population and reproductive biology of the fiddler crab Uca thayeri Rathbun, 1900 (Crustacea: Ocypodidae) in a tropical mangrove from Northeast Brazil
Ovigerous females were found in 5 months of the year, coinciding with the rainy season, suggesting that the population of U. thayeri presents seasonal reproductive events.
Shallow-water caridean shrimps from southern Bahia, Brazil, including the first record of Synalpheus ul (Ríos & Duffy, 2007) (Alpheidae) in the southwestern Atlantic Ocean
The history and present situation of the Philippines, as well as some of the aspects of its people and institutions, are described in detail in a book published in 2016.

Distribution pattern of zoanthids (Cnidaria: Zoantharia) on a tropical reef
The results suggest that the zoanthids use a variety of these adaptive strategies, which account for their success on consolidated substrates on flat sandstone reefs in north-eastern Brazil.
