ZOOPLANKTON DIEL VERTICAL MIGRATION — A REVIEW OF PROXIMATE CONTROL
Diel vertical migration (DVM) is a characteristic behavioural pattern performed by zooplankton in which their vertical distribution changes over the 24-h day. Here the proximate control ofExpand

Cues for Metamorphosis of Brachyuran Crabs: An Overview1
Abstract The early life cycle of brachyuran crabs has a planktonic dispersal stage consisting of a variable number of zoeal larvae followed by the molt to the megalopa stage. Megalopae undergoExpand

Cues and context: Larval responses to physical and chemical cues
Most marine organisms have a highly specialized larval settlement stage. A major function of the settlement stage is response to environmental input that results in deposition of the larvae in aExpand

Effects of chemical cues on settlement behavior of blue crab Callinectes sapidus postlarvae
Settlement of blue crab Callinectes sapidus Rathbun postlarvae (megalopae) was examined in the field in the presence and absence of chemical cues from settlement habitats and potential megalopalExpand

Selective tidal-stream transport of the blue crab Callinectes sapidus: An overview
This overview combines our recent studies with existing information to develop more complete conceptual models of selective tidal-stream transport (STST) of ovigerous female and post-larvae of theExpand

Movement patterns and trajectories of ovigerous blue crabs Callinectes sapidus during the spawning migration
Female blue crabs (Callinectes sapidus Rathbun) migrate from low salinity estuarine regions to high salinity regions near the ocean to release larvae. During this migration, ovigerous females useExpand

Behavioral responses of blue crab Callinectes sapidus postlarvae to turbulence:implications for selective tidal stream transport
Postlarvae (megalopae) of the blue crab Callinectes sapidus move up estuaries using selective tidal stream transport, in which they are in the water column on flood tides and at or near the bottom atExpand

Abundance of estuarine crab larvae is associated with tidal hydrologic variables
Abundances of brachyuran megalopae and juveniles were measured throughout consecutive tidal cycles during six 2 to 3 d sampling periods in summer 1992, and associated with rates of change of tidalExpand
