Effects of temperature and salinity on the larval development of the Chinese mitten crab Eriocheir sinensis (Decapoda: Grapsidae).
With increasing temperature, both overall survival and range of salinity tolerance increased, whereas development duration decreased exponentially, and regression equations describing this relationship are given. Expand
NOBANIS-Invasive Alien Species Fact Sheet
A review of the genus Eriocheir De Haan, 1835 and related genera, with the description of a new genus and a new species (Brachyura, Grapsoidea, Varunidae)
The results of the present study indicate a reclassification into four genera including one new genus, together lodging seven species, including two new species, and with an eighth currently nameless species remaining as a species inquirenda. Expand
The efficacy of crab condos in capturing small crab species and their use in invasive marine species monitoring
Given the recognized importance of early detection of marine pests at their early life stages and current lack of methods targeting small and cryptogenic species, the crab condo sampling method may fill an important gap in marine pest surveillance capacity. Expand
Environmental factors influencing the dynamics of Chinese mitten crab zoeae in the San Francisco Bay-Delta
Assessment of the only known long-term life-history data set to assess the relative importance of reproductive potential and environmental factors in regulating mitten crab population dynamics in San Francisco Bay supports the hypotheses that concentrations of planktonic zoeae are strongly influenced by interactions between the number of breeding female crabs, the timing of reproduction, and water temperature.

Invasive records of Eriocheir hepuensis Dai, 1991 (Crustacea: Brachyura: Grapsoidea: Varunidae): Implications and taxonomic considerations
The results of this extensive examination indicate that the Iraqi and Kuwaiti specimens are E. hepuensis and the DNA analysis indicates that mitten crabs can be assigned to three genera and six species; although the present study does discuss reports of hybridisation between three Eriocheir species associated with aquaculture.

Inferences on the biology of juvenile Chinese mitten crab (Eriocheir sinensis) from exuviae in a Hudson River tributary, New York, USA.
Data from exuviae were useful in observing the early stage of this invasion of Chinese mitten crabs in the Saw Kill, a small tributary to the fresh-tidal Hudson River, in summer and early fall 2008. Expand
Invasion biology of the Chinese mitten crab Eriochier sinensis: a brief review.
The biology and ecology of native and invasive populations of the Chinese mitten crabs are reviewed and recommendations for research relevant to the prediction of future mitten crab invasions are provided. Expand
