Summary. 1 Measurements were made of the carapace and of the lengths of each segment, of the appendages of thirty-two male Ocypodu aegyptiaca, of carapace lengths ranging from 11–4 to 42.1 mm. 2 The results previously obtained by Huxley for O. ceratophthalma were confirmed as regards the negative heterogony of the walking-legs with respect to the carapace (section 4), the presence of a centre of low growth-potential in the merus of these legs and the complex nature of the growth… Expand
Relative growth and sexual maturity of Bathynectes superbus (Costa) (Decapoda: Portunidae)
TLDR
Morphometric and relative growth analyses of Bathynectes superbus reveal simple allometric relationships between short carapace width, the reference measurement, and other carapACE dimensions, which suggest a pubertal moult in females. Expand
Studies on the morphometry of Macrobrachium nobilii (Decapoda, Palaemonidae)
TLDR
In males, major and minor chelipeds showed positive allometry while in females the growth was isometric, and comparison of slopes and elevations of regressions between sexes indicated significant difference in all the studied dependent parameters with carapace length, except withCarapace width.

Relative growth before and after sexual maturity in Ocypode platytarsis (Milne Edwards) and Ocypode cordimana (Desmarest) (Crustacea: Decapoda)
TLDR
The relative growth of two species of the genus Ocypode inhabiting different ecological niches was studied before and after sexual maturity and major chela length of males of both species is clearly a sexually dimorphic feature. Expand
Morphometric Study of the Ghost Crab Ocypode Quadrata (Fabricius, 1887) (Brachyura, Ocypodidae) from Ubatuba, São Paulo, Brazil
A morphometric study of the ghost crab Ocypode quadrata from Ubatuba, Sao Paulo, Brazil, focusing on the relationships between carapace width and carapace length, abdomen width, gonopod length andExpand
The Prevalence of Left-Handedness in the Painted Ghost Crab Ocypode Ga Udicha Udii H. Milne Edwards & Lucas (Decapoda Brachyura, Ocypodidae)
Handedness, or laterality, in crabs possessing dimorphic claws has been examined for several species of brachyuran decapods. These studies have revealed that the major (crusher) chela is locatedExpand
The Ecology of Ghost Crabs
Ever-increasing interest in oceanography and marine biology and their relevance to global environmental issues creates a demand for authoritative reviews summarising the results of recent research.Expand
VARIATION IN GROWTH PATTERN BETWEEN SOME SECONDARY SEXUAL CHARACTERS IN CRABS (DECAPODA BRACHYURA)
Le croissance relative, chez les crabes, de trois caracteres sexuels secondaires -pinces, abdomen et premiers pleopodes - a fait l'objet d'observations. Il existe de fortes variations specifiquesExpand
Aquatic versus terrestrial crab skeletal support: morphology, mechanics, molting and scaling
TLDR
The results suggest that the rigid crab body plan is inherently overbuilt and sufficient to deal with the greater gravitational loading that occurs on land, while mechanical adaptations are important for hydrostatically supported crabs. Expand
ALLOMETRIC GROWTH IN ILYOPLAX STEVENSI (DECAPODA, BRACHYURA, OCYPODIDAE)
TLDR
Les deux methodes sont utilisees pour decrire la croissance d'Ilyoplax stevensi (Kemp), un crabe Ocypodidae chez lequel il n'y a pas of nette transition entre les phases d'immaturite et de maturite. Expand

Notes on Differential Growth
TLDR
Quantitative evaluation of these has permitted the construction of an approximate "growth-profile" for the whole organism, which shows radical differences in the growth-intensity of different regions. Expand
