Larvae of Sesarma bidens (de Haan) were reared in the laboratory upto megalopa stage under the culture conditions of salinity 25 plus or minus 1 ppt and temperature 28 plus or minus 1 degree C. First zoea reached megalopal stage in four moults after a minimum period of 10 days. Four zoeal and a megalopal stages are described and compared with other known larvae of Sesarma spp 
Complete larval and early juvenile development of the mangrove crab Perisesarma fasciatum (Crustacea: Brachyura: Sesarmidae) from Singapore, with a larval comparison of Parasesarma and Perisesarma
The complete larval development of the sesarmid crab Perisesarma fasciatum (Lanchester, 1900) from Singapore was obtained from laboratory culture. All four zoeal stages, the megalopa and the first
Morphology of the first zoeal stages of eleven Sesarmidae (Crustacea, Brachyura, Thoracotremata) from the Indo-West Pacific, with a summary of familial larval characters
It is demonstrated that a recurrent combination of reliable larval characters distinguishes zoeae and megalopae of the examined sesarmids from the rest of the Grapsoidea, which appears to be consistent with recent studies that redefine the Sesarmidae.
Population genetic diversity of sesarmid crab (Perisesarma bidens) in China based on mitochondrial DNA
Both mismatch distribution and neutrality tests implied a recent population expansion event for the sesarmid crab species in the late Pleistocene, indicating that no significant population genetic structure existed in populations from the East China Sea and South China Sea.
A review of studies on Pichavaram mangrove, southeast India
The mangrove harboured a large number of juvenile fishes, especially during summer and post-monsoon, and 90% of the mangroves cover in the study area was degraded, suggesting possible factors that cause degradation of the ecosystem are detailed and remedial measures suggested.
