Analysis of the structure of decapod crustacean assemblages off the Catalan coast (North-West Mediterranean)
Four distinct faunistic assemblages appear to be related to different hydrological characteristics, the extent of seasonal fluctuations, and to the changes in sediment structure associated with changes in the steepness of the bottom.
Biogeography of epibenthic crustaceans on the shelf and upper slope off the Iberian Peninsula Mediterranean coasts: implications for the establishment of natural management areas
The patterns of occurrence and bathymetric distribution of epibenthic crustaceans on the continental shelf and upper slope down to a depth of 800 m are analysed based on data gathered during six…
Phylogenetic relationships between spiny, slipper and coral lobsters (Crustacea, Decapoda, Achelata).
Carapace Colour, Inter-moult Duration and the Behavioural and Physiological Ecology of the Shore CrabCarcinus maenas
A synthesis of studies which have led to conclusions that some crabs remain in inter-moult longer than others, developing stronger and thicker carapaces and chelae, and are thus more likely to win mating conflicts are discussed.

Differences in N. norvegicus and Parapenaeus longirostris population demographic structure among geographical sectors, as well as in total mortality, appear to be highly related to different exploitation levels.
Population structure and growth of Donax trunculus (Bivalvia: Donacidae) in the western Mediterranean
A comparison of shell growth in Donax trunculus (collected between 1988 and 1990 of Cullera, Spain) has been carried out using an analysis of cohort progression in monthly length frequency…

Continental shelf and upper slope fish communities were studied along the Catalan coast based on 66 experimental bottom otter trawls. A total of 79 demersal fish species were studied by means of…
Chela loss in the shore crab Carcinus maenas (Crustacea: Brachyura) and its effect on mating success
The proportion of male crabs with missing chelae found in mating pairs in the field was much lower than that found in the adult unpaired population, suggesting that the loss of a chela constitutes a handicap to a male crab when trying to mate.
