The Biology of Upogebia pusilla (PETAGNA) (Decapoda, Thalassinidea)
. Populations of the thalassinidean shrimp Upogebia pusilla were studied on tidal flats in the Northern Adriatic Sea. Biometric analysis showed a sexual dimorphism, especially in propodus size. SizeExpand

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 numerousExpand

Feeding behaviour of Upogebia pusilla and Callianassa tyrrhena (Crustacea, Decapoda, Thalassinidea)
SUMMARY: Feeding behaviour of burrowing crustaeans Upogebia pusilla and Callianassa tyrrhena was investigated in narrow aquaria. Upogebia feeds mainly on suspended matter in the water which isExpand

The pumping rates of the burrowing shrimp Upogebia pusilla (Petagna) (Decapoda:Thalassinidea)
Abstract The pumping rates of the burrowing shrimp Upogebia pusilla (Petagna) were measured with an overflow apparatus. Short-term pumping rates were correlated with cube of animal size and rangedExpand
