Among the 516 taxa of thalassinideans so far described, there is a strong latitudinal increase in species numbers from high latitudes towards the equator in both hemispheres. Numbers of species in the northern hemisphere are similar to those in the southern one. Thirty-two percent of the species are found in the Indo-West Pacific and 22% in the Southwest Atlantic. All species are benthic and live either in marine or brackish water. Ninety-five percent of all thalassinideans inhabit shallow… Expand

This work reviews the scarce knowledge on the biogeography and life history of the Chilean and Argentine Thalassinidae and includes an analysis of original sampling sites with special focus on the local South American scientific literature. Expand
OF THE THALASSINIDEA ( CRUSTACEA : DECAPODA ) FROM CHILE AND ARGENTINA
Thalassinid decapods have received increasing attention in marine ecology due to their deep-burrowing activity and their ecological importance in benthic communities, i.e. as bioturbators in muddyExpand
A guide to the Thalassinidea (Crustacea: Malacostraca: Decapoda) of the South Atlantic Bight

A PHYLOGENY OF THE FAMILIES OF THALASSINIDEA (CRUSTACEA: DECAPODA) WITH KEYS TO FAMILIES AND GENERA
TLDR
A computer-aided phylogenetic analysis of the families has confirmed the monophyly of the infraorder, based largely on the unique possession of a setose lower margin to pereopod 2, and the Thalassinidea are divided into three superfamilies: Thalassinoidea and Callianassoidea, more closely related to each other than to Axioidea.

Pomatogebia, a new genus of thalassinidean shrimps from western hemisphere tropics (Crustacea : Upogebiidae)
TLDR
A new genus, Pomatogebia, is proposed for 3 species of thalassinidean shrimps from the tropical western Atlantic and eastern Pacific that are specialized for burrowing in massive stony corals, and Upogebia operculata (Schmitt, 1924) becomes the type species of the new genus. Expand

Effects of a burrowing mud shrimp, Upogebia pugettensis (Dana), on abundances of macro-infauna
TLDR
The overall pattern of faunal response to the presence of U. pugettensis was similar to that reported for Callianassa californiensis (Dana), an unexpected finding given the different burrowing and feeding habits of these two crustaceans. Expand
Biodiversity of the Pelagic Ocean
TLDR
The basis for a predictive understanding of the interaction between diversity and ecological process can be greatly enhanced relatively inexpensively by systematically collating existing data and working up extant collections of material. Expand
