AN ILLUSTRATED IDENTIFICATION GUIDE TO THE NEARSHORE MARINE AND ESTUARINE GAMMARIDEAN AMPHIPODA OF FLORIDA
Biogenic Sedimentary Structures Formed By Rays
ABSTRACT Excavations made by the feeding activity of rays (elasmobranchs) are extremely abundant in tidal flats and in estuarine sand bars and channels of the Georgia coast. Rays make excavations by…

Effects of pollution on biotic integrity are difficult to identify when correlations occur between environmental gradients and contaminant effects, as they do in estuaries. In this broad-scale study,…
Taxonomy and Life Histories of Two North American Species of " Carneophallus " (= Microphallus ) (Digenea: Microphallidae)
Estuarine and Coastal Habitat Use of Gulf Sturgeon (Acipenser oxyrinchus desotoi) in the North-Central Gulf of Mexico
Gulf sturgeon are anadromous, spawning in freshwater and returning to the marine environment to feed. Herein, we document the marine distribution and timing of movement in and out of the marine…
Pattern and Coloration of Periclimenes rathbunae from the Turks and Caicos Islands, with Comments on Host Associations in Other Anemone Shrimps of the West Indies and Bermuda
The commensal shrimp Periclimenes rathbunae and three of its congeners are reviewed and the first direct evidence that P. yucatanicus leaves the host anemone temporarily to "clean" fishes is offered, discounting a previous suggestion of its role as a noncleaning mimic of P. pedersoni.
An examination of the shrimp family Callianideidae (Crustacea: Decapoda: Thalassinidea).
—One striking character was found to unite the members of the family Callianideidae, viz. the presence of rows of plumose setae, each seta sited in a pit, these rows being found on the carapace,…
ACANTHOCEPHALANS FROM CRABS IN THE SOUTHEASTERN U.S., WITH THE FIRST INTERMEDIATE HOSTS KNOWN FOR ARHYTHMORHYNCHUS FRASSONI AND HEXAGLANDULA CORYNOSOMA
Cystacanths of Hexaglandula corynosoma were discovered in the fiddler crabs Uca spinicarpa and Uca rapax collected in Mississippi and Florida and the first record of an intermediate host for any species of the genus.
Responses by Macrobenthic Assemblages to Extensive Beach Restoration at Perdido Key, Florida, U.S.A.
In this study, we examine complex responses by macrobenthic assemblages to extensive beach restoration affecting 7 km of open shoreline at Perdido Key. Florida. Beach restoration consisted of two…
