Incubation in British Decapod Crustacea, and the Effects of Temperature on the Rate and Success of Embryonic Development
TLDR
Experiments showed that a threefold decrease in egg development time can occur naturally in successive batches of eggs incubated during the early spring to mid-summer breeding season of a single species in the one locality, and a rapid rise in water temperature of as little as 3 °C can disrupt the natural sequence in the spawning and incubation of successive egg batches.
Changes in concentrations of microcystins in rainbow trout, freshwater mussels, and cyanobacteria in Lakes Rotoiti and Rotoehu
TLDR
Embedded microcystin congeners LR, YR, RR, AR, FR, LA, and WR were detected by LC‐MS in caged freshwater mussels in Lake Rotoiti but were not detected in either muscle or liver tissue of rainbow trout.
Life‐history studies on New Zealand Brachyura
TLDR
Evidence from larval characters supports the inclusion of E. australis in the ::amily Majidae (rather than Parthenopidae) and suggests that the species is more appropriately placed in the subfamily Majinae rather than in the Pisinae to which it has been recently assigned.

Biology of feeding in the New Zealand paddle crab Ovalipes catharus (Crustacea, Portunidae)
TLDR
No significant differences in appetite were found between crabs starved for 28 days and crabs freshly caught from the sea when fed to satiation over a 13‐day period, and these crabs exhibited the same level and rate of appetite depression.
