Crustaceans use odor and fluid mechanical cues to extract information from their environment. These cues enable animals to find resources, orient to water currents, or escape predators. Because the properties of the fluid environment affect the transmission and structure of relevant signals, a better understanding of sensory and behavioral mechanisms will be aided by considering, at the same time, the hydrodynamic context of chemo- and mechanosensory behaviors. Crustaceans occupy aquatic… CONTINUE READING
