The population dynamics and resource partitioning of five species of spider crabs (Loxorhynchus crispatus, Pugettia producta, Mimulusfoliatus, Pugettia richii, and Scyra acutifrons) were measured in a kelp forest on the central California coast. The distribution of the five species showed zones of peak abundances along a transect from the intertidal zone through the kelp forest to a deep reef. P. richii was the most abundant species with peak densities of 6 crabs/M2 at the middle and inner edge… Expand
