Life history traits of the invasive estuarine shrimp Palaemon macrodactylus (Caridea: Palaemonidae) in a marine environment (Mar del Plata, Argentina)
The invasive oriental shrimp Palaemon macrodactylus has been extensively recorded around the world, mainly in estuarine zones. In this study, the life history of this species was studied in Mar delExpand

Effects of temperature and salinity on larval survival and development in the invasive shrimp Palaemon macrodactylus (Caridea: Palaemonidae) along the reproductive season
Abstract The invasive shrimp Palaemon macrodactylus is associated mainly with brackish waters. Previous studies raised the question if tolerance to low salinities differs between larvae and adults.Expand

Seasonal variation in reproductive traits of the oriental shrimp Palaemon macrodactylus (Crustacea: Caridea: Palaemonidae) in a non-native population
The magnitude of variations in reproductive traits of Palaemon macrodactylus females throughout a breeding season was studied in a non-native population at Mar del Plata harbor, Argentina. Fecundity,Expand

Carryover effects of predation risk on postembryonic life-history stages in a freshwater shrimp.
For organisms with complex life histories it is well known that risk experienced early in life, as embryos or larvae, may have effects throughout the life cycle. Although carryover effects have beenExpand

Population structure of the intertidal crab Cyrtograpsus altimanus (Brachyura: Varunidae) in a northern Patagonia mussel bed
The population structure, size at maturity, reproductive period, recruitment and habitat use were studied in a population of the grapsoid crab Cyrtograpsus altimanus in an intertidal mussel bed atExpand

Ontogeny of salinity tolerance in the invasive shrimp Palaemon macrodactylus (Caridea: Palaemonidae)
Ontogenetic changes in salinity tolerance are a key factor to understand not only larval behavior, but also recruitment success in many decapod crustaceans. The invasive shrimp Palaemon macrodactylusExpand

Chemically induced plasticity in early life history of Palaemon argentinus: are chemical alarm cues conserved within palaemonid shrimps?
ABSTRACT Most aquatic animals use infochemicals from both conspecifics and heterospecifics to assess local predation risks and enhance predator detection. Released substances from injuredExpand
Effects of temperature and salinity on the ovarian cycle and the embryonic development of the invasive shrimp Palaemon macrodactylus.
The oriental shrimp Palaemon macrodactylus Rathbun, 1902 was detected first in Argentina in 2000 in a fully marine environment (Mar del Plata) and more recently, in two estuarine areas. Here weExpand

Population distribution and group structure of the invasive shrimp Palaemon macrodactylus (Caridea: Palaemonidae) living in a fouling community
ABSTRACTBehaviour traits like sociality have been identified as factors promoting invasiveness. Studying the manner in which animals are distributed in their natural environment relative to conspec...
Carryover effects from embryos on larval performance in the freshwater shrimp Palaemon argentinus (Crustacea: Decapoda: Palaemonidae)
ABSTRACT Our understanding of physiological carryover effects from embryos on post-hatching performance is still limited for aquatic organisms that brood embryos externally. We examined the effectsExpand
