Population biology of shrimp Macrobrachium jelskii (Miers, 1778) (Decapoda, Palaemonoidea) at the Grande River at northwest of the state of Minas Gerais, Brazil
TLDR
The presence of ovigerous females and juveniles in the population suggests a continuous reproduction pattern and recruitment for M. jelskii at Planura region.
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-eastern
Population dynamics and reproductive traits of the ornamental crab Porcellana sayana: implications for fishery management and aquaculture
TLDR
The population dynamics and reproductive traits of an ornamental crus- tacean, the spotted porcelain crab Porcellana sayana, are reported on and needs to be considered in assessing stocks and establishing sustainable management plans for P. sayana.
Mithracinae (Decapoda: Brachyura) from the Brazilian coast: review of the geographical distribution and comments on the biogeography of the group
TLDR
The present review provides an update of the geographical distribution of members of the brachyuran subfamily Mithracinae along the Brazilian coast, finding that of the 30 species of this subfamily recorded from Brazilian waters, the known geographical limits of more than 17 have been extended in recent decades.
Nutritional vulnerability in early stages of the freshwater ornamental red cherry shrimp Neocaridina davidi(Bouvier, 1904) (Caridea: Atyidae)
TLDR
The early stages of the life cycle are more tolerant to starvation than other decapods previously studied, which indicates a great potential of this species for aquaculture.
Checklist of the brachyuran crabs (Crustacea: Decapoda) in the rocky subtidal of Vitória Archipelago, southeast coast of Brazil
TLDR
A checklist of the crabs associated with subtidal rocky bottoms at the Vitoria Archipelago, southeastern Brazilian coast is provided to provide a checklist of its main properties including stability, primary productivity, exploitation tolerance and even global environmental changes.
New records of decapod crustaceans from the coast of Sergipe state, Brazil
TLDR
Seven decapod crustacean species for the first time from Sergipe state, northeastern Brazil are reported to fill gaps in the geographical distribution that have previous records for adjacent areas.
Decapod crustaceans from the continental shelf of Sergipe, northeastern Brazil.
TLDR
The crustacean richness of Sergipe is probably underestimated and likely to increase with further samplings, especially on artificial rocky shores, rhodoliths and algae banks, small coralline formations, and other unexplored estuarine habitats.
Morphological variation in males of Dendrocephalus orientalis (Anostraca: Thamnocephalidae): Implications for species identification.
TLDR
The number of spines on the eyes and the frontal appendage arms cannot be used as a diagnostic character for species identification and the first pairs of thoracopods and sub-branches 1V and 2A of the frontalappendage should be included in keys, since these structures did not show significant intraspecific morphological variation.
Nutritional vulnerability of early zoeal stages of the invasive shrimp Lysmata vittata (Decapoda: Caridea) in the Atlantic Ocean
TLDR
The nutritional vulnerability index (PRS50/PNR50 = 0.54) indicates that L. vittata presents intermediate dependence on exogenous food during the early larval stages, which might help the understanding of the invasive potential of this species in the Atlantic Ocean.
