Amostragens quantitativas de plâncton foram desenvolvidas no sistema estuarino de Itamaraca durante baixa-mares diurnas de fevereiro de 1995 a maio de 1996. Utilizou-se uma rede de plâncton de 300µm de abertura de malha e 60cm de diâmetro de boca. Foram registrados 49 taxa, inclusive 29 taxa de Decapoda. Os taxa mais abundantes foram Copepoda, zoeas de Brachyura, nauplios de Cirripedia, adultos de Lucifer faxoni, Chaetognatha, Appendicularia, ovos de peixe, Gastropoda, e zoeas de Upogebiidae…

Distribuição espaço-temporal de crustáceos decápodes meroplanctônicos, com ênfase nas larvas do caranguejo-uçá, na baía de Guanabara, Rio de Janeiro

A riqueza de crustaceos decapodes observada na baia, apontou enorme potencial ecologico, especialmente como bercario e habitat, comparando-se com ecossistemas mais conservados, densidades populacionais das larvas do caranguejo-uca foram baixas.

Variação sazonal do macrozooplâncton do estuário do rio Siriji, litoral norte de Pernambuco – Brasilexclusiva do nordeste do Brasil

Algumas amostras apresentaram baixos valores de equitabilidade (inferiores a 0,5), o que pode indicar, entre outras causas, that a comunidade zooplanctonica vem sofrendo desequilibrio em consequencia of alteracoes em seu habitat.

Dynamic patterns of zooplankton transport and migration in Catuama Inlet (Pernambuco, Brazil), with emphasis on the decapod crustacean larvae

La mayoria de las especies y fases larvales mostraron patrones de migracion vertical caracteristicos, en fase con los ciclos de the marea diurnos, favoreciendo la retencion o exportacion del estuario.

Dinâmica espacial e temporal de zoeas de Brachyura (Crustacea, Decapoda) no estuário do Rio Jaguaribe, Itamaracá, Pernambuco, Brasil

The high occurrence of zoea in the first larval stages reinforces the important role of estuaries as nursery grounds for several crustacean species within the estuarine waters.

Feeding ecology of Centropomus undecimalis ( Bloch , 1792 ) and Centropomus parallelus ( Poey , 1860 ) in two tropical estuaries in Northeastern Brazil

This study provides information on the feeding habitats of Centropomus undecimalis and Centropomus parallelus in two estuaries of Pernambuco, Northeast Brazil. Specimens were collected every three

Spatial and temporal distribution of decapod larvae in the subtropical waters of the Arvoredo archipelago, SC, Brazil

Decapoda and Stomatopoda larvae occurred throughout the year, showing that reproduction is continuous, but that larval input in planktonic community was significantly higher during autumn and spring.

Composition of decapod larvae in a northeastern Brazilian estuarine inlet over a full tidal cycle

All of the planktonic larval stages were observed for most of the decapods, suggesting that the probable exportation from the estuary is to the inner adjacent shelf area, instead of the outer oceanic area.

Multiloci analyses suggest synonymy among Rhomboplites, Ocyurus and Lutjanus and reveal the phylogenetic position of Lutjanus alexandrei (Lutjanidae: Perciformes)

This report is the most robust multiloci analysis to confirm the synonymy of the three genera of Lutjaninae from Western Atlantic and the first reliable inference about the phylogenetic relationships and origin of L. alexandrei.

Utilization of bating mangrove leaves as a transport mechanism of estuarine organisms, with emphasis on decapod Crustacea

Floating mangrove leaves with associated organisms were sampled over 4 consecutive tidal cycles from 1 to 3 December 1987 in the estuary of Punta Morales, Gulf of Nicoya, Costa Rica, finding that transport mechanism may minimize both the risk of predation and the energy required to immigrate into the preferred habitat.

Impact of Planktivorous Fishes on Dispersal, Hatching, and Morphology of Estuarine Crab Larvae

The study of preferences of common estuarine fishes for crab larvae in the laboratory and the upper Newport River estuary suggests that predation pressure exerted by planktivorous fishes is predictable in time and space, and the timing of larval release, dispersal patterns, and larval morphologies ofEstuarine crabs have evolved together to reduce the risk of plankTivory regardless of whether zoeae develop offshore or in estuaries.

Morphological comparison between zoea IV larvae developing directly to a megalopa with those passing through an additional zoeal instar shows that the former are not only faster in development but also morphologically more advanced than the latter.

Crab larvae were collected from a platform moored in the mouth of a mangrove estero (= tidal creek) in the Gulf of Nicoya on the Pacific coast of Costa h c a, Central America, where spawning occurred year-round, but individual taxa showed distinct seasonality.
