Population biology of shrimp Macrobrachium jelskii (Miers, 1778) (Decapoda, Palaemonoidea) at the Grande River at northwest of the state of Minas Gerais, Brazil
AIM: The population biology of the freshwater shrimp Macrobrachium jelskii was investigated here emphasizing the length-frequency distribution, sex ratio, reproductive period and juvenileExpand
Population dynamics and reproductive traits of the ornamental crab Porcellana sayana: implications for fishery management and aquaculture
We report on the population dynamics and reproductive traits of an ornamental crus- tacean, the spotted porcelain crab Porcellana sayana. Reproductive biology was examined be - tween January 1998 andExpand
Onset of sexual maturity and relative growth of the freshwater crab Trichodactylus fluviatilis (Trichodactyloidea) in south-eastern Brazil
The main purpose of this study was to provide an estimate for the onset of morphological sexual maturity in the freshwater crab Trichodactylus fluviatilis, from a population located in south-easternExpand
Mithracinae (Decapoda: Brachyura) from the Brazilian coast: review of the geographical distribution and comments on the biogeography of the group
The geographical distribution of marine organisms, as a result of complex natural processes through geological time, has been changed, sometimes drastically, by species introductions. Instances ofExpand
Nutritional vulnerability in early stages of the freshwater ornamental red cherry shrimp Neocaridina davidi(Bouvier, 1904) (Caridea: Atyidae)
This study evaluated the starvation resistance of the shrimp, Neocaridina davidi during the first and the third juvenile stages (named here as JI and JIII) by means of the estimation ofExpand
Checklist of the brachyuran crabs (Crustacea: Decapoda) in the rocky subtidal of Vitória Archipelago, southeast coast of Brazil
Biodiversity can be useful as an ecosystem indicator for conservation and monitoring, through continuous assessment of its main properties including stability, primary productivity, exploitationExpand
New records of decapod crustaceans from the coast of Sergipe state, Brazil
The objective of this study is to report seven decapod crustacean species for the first time from Sergipe state, northeastern Brazil. The specimens were sampled from January 2012 to June 2015, onExpand
Morphological variation in males of Dendrocephalus orientalis (Anostraca: Thamnocephalidae): Implications for species identification.
The genus Dendrocephalus Daday, 1908 consists of 17 described species. The morphology of the frontal appendage and the first pairs of thoracopods of males are the main characteristics used forExpand
Sexual system, reproductive cycle and embryonic development of the red-striped shrimp Lysmata vittata, an invader in the western Atlantic Ocean
Several decapod crustaceans are invaders, but little is known about the biological characteristics that potentiate the success of these decapods in invaded ecosystems. Here, we evaluate and describeExpand
The mating system of the symbiotic pea-crab Dissodactylus crinitichelis (Brachyura, Pinnotheridae): monogamy or promiscuity?
The mating systems of symbiotic crustaceans vary broadly, ranging from monogamy to polygamy to promiscuity. This disparity in mating systems coupled with wide differences in host ecology providesExpand
