BRACHYURAN DIVERSITY IN SUB LITTORAL ZONE OF TROPICAL ESTUARY, KARWAR, WEST COAST OF INDIA.
TLDR
The 20 species of crabs belonging to 14 genera and 6 families have been recorded from sub littoral zone of the estuary and conversion of mangrove area into shrimp farm, industrialization, sand mining and excavation of shell fossils are major threat to crab diversity in this area.

Drivers of change in the epifaunal assemblages associated with intertidal macro-algae at the Mangrove site south Safaga, Egypt, Red Sea
The Red Sea is characterized by the presence of more than one ecosystem within its coastal areas. These ecosystems included the most famous coral reef, sea grass, and mangrove in addition to sandy
Resurrection of Gelasimus variegatus Heller, 1862, A Fiddler Crab Closely Related to Austruca bengali (Crane, 1975) and A. triangularis (A. Milne-Edwards, 1873) (Decapoda, Brachyura, Ocypodidae), from the Bay of Bengal, Indian Ocean.
TLDR
Examination of specimens from the Bay of Bengal shows that the fiddler crab is a valid species belonging to the genus Austruca Bott, 1973, and can be separated from the closely related A. bengali and A. triangularis by characters of the carapace, orbital floor, major and minor chelae, male first gonopod, vulva, gastric mill, and coloration in life.

Abstract The residue levels of presistent chlorinated pesticides such as HCH (hexachlorocyclo-hexane) isomers and DDT (dichlorodiphenyl trichloroethane) compounds were quantified in water samples
Characteristic trend of persistent organochlorine contamination in wildlife from a tropical agricultural watershed, South India
TLDR
The residue levels in fish measured in the present study were generally comparable to values reported from other locations, which suggests that the bioavailability of contaminants to the aquatic fauna is less due to the smaller flux and shorter residence time of these chemicals in the tropics.
