  • We examined the planktonic ingress of fiddler crab megalopae into the Newport River Estuary, NC, using hog's hair collectors to determine whether there were differences in pat- terns of ingress among the 3 Uca species in this estuary. In 2 consecutive summers, we docu- mented peaks in settlement of fiddler crab megalopae onto passive larval collectors at the quarter moons (neap tides), corresponding with longer durations of flood tides during darkness. However, molecular identifications… CONTINUE READING
