Asymmetry in Male Fiddler Crabs is Related to the Basic Pattern of Claw-waving Display.


Morphological asymmetry was correlated with the pattern of claw-waving display in males from five species of fiddler crabs: three vertical wavers (Uca urvillei, U. dussumieri, U. vocans), a lateral waver (U. annulipes), and an intermediate waver (U. tetragonon).
