The ecology and response to sedimentation of the diverse, endemic freshwater crabs of Lake Tanganyika is investigated, which suggests the high biomass and top-predator status of some crab species suggests the potential for cascading effects on organisms lower in the food web.

The endemic crabs of Lake Tanganyika include a phenotypically diverse clade that exhibits recent divergence and low phylogenetic species resolution, and a considerable level of ecological niche overlap is evident among species of Platythelphusa that coexist in rocky littoral habitats.
Two new species of Platythelphusa A. Milne-Edwards, 1887 (Decapoda, Potamoidea, Platythelphusidae) and comments on the taxonomic position of P. denticulata Capart, 1952 from Lake Tanganyika, East…

A recent literature review that was carried out in an attempt to locate and evaluate populations of crabs in the family Deckeniidae Ortmann, 1897, revealed a number of inconsistencies and uncertainties concerning the recorded locality data of museum specimens.
