A Classification of Living and Fossil Genera of Decapod Crustaceans
TLDR
This compilation is the first comprehensive estimate of taxonomic diversity within the entire Decapoda, listing all known families and genera organized by higher taxonomic groups and including estimates of the number of species in every genus.
The Biology of Upogebia pusilla (PETAGNA) (Decapoda, Thalassinidea)
TLDR
Populations of the thalassinidean shrimp Upogebia pusilla were studied on tidal flats in the Northern Adriatic Sea, showing a sexual dimorphism, especially in propodus size, and the population structures, growth and breeding patterns, as well as embryonic and larval development within the UpOgebiidae and Callianassidae are discussed.
Decapod burrows in mangrove-channel and back-reef environments at the Atlantic Barrier Reef, Belize
Burrows of decapod crustaceans were investigated by in situ resin casting in various mangrove and back‐reef environments. Alpheid shrimps (A. floridanus and A. heterochaelis) were the most numerous
Infraorders Axiidea de Saint Laurent, 1979 and Gebiidea de Saint Laurent, 1979 (formerly known collectively as Thalassinidea)
This chapter briefly talks about Infraorders Axiidea De Saint Laurent, 1979 and Gebiidea De Saint Laurent, 1979 (formerly known collectively as Thalassinidea). The infraorder Gebiidea de Saint
Feeding behaviour of Upogebia pusilla and Callianassa tyrrhena (Crustacea, Decapoda, Thalassinidea)
TLDR
Feeding behaviour of burrowing crustaeans Upogebia pusilla and Callianassa tyrrhena was investigated in narrow aquaria and the different fee­ ding types of both species are reflected in their different burrow shape.
The pumping rates of the burrowing shrimp Upogebia pusilla (Petagna) (Decapoda:Thalassinidea)
TLDR
The pumping rates of the burrowing shrimp Upogebia pusilla (Petagna) were measured with an overflow apparatus and correlated with cube of animal size, giving long-term rates ranging from 5 to 900 ml/h.
The Biology of Upogebia pusilla (Petagna) (Decapoda, Thalassinidea) I. The Burrows
TLDR
The biology of the thalassinidean shrimp Upogebia pusilla was studied on a tidal flat in the Lagoon of Grado (Northern Adriatic) using in situ resin casting and with additional in situ and laboratory observations.
Burrows of Pestarella tyrrhena (Decapoda: Thalassinidea): hot spots for Nematoda, Foraminifera and bacterial densities
TLDR
The burrow walls were most influenced by the shrimp's activity, which corresponds to their nutritional role, and meiofauna densities in CD were highest, demonstrating the ability of P. tyrrhena to create a specific microenvironment within the burrow.
The Thalassinidea in the Museum of Natural History, Vienna; with some remarks on the biology of the species
TLDR
The number of species in the collection of the Museum of Natural History in Vienna has been increased by 17 species to a total of 52, making it necessary to correct some identifications or adapt them according to recent knowledge of the taxonomy of this group.
