The present paper aims to describe the temporal and spatial distribution of the composition and abundance of Decapoda larvae in the shallow waters around Arvoredo Marine Biological Reserve. Stomatopod occurrence is also discussed. Plankton samples were collected at five sites around the Arvoredo Island every two months for one year from May, 2002 to April, 2003. Thirty-nine morphotypes, 11 genus and 4 species (Artemesia longinaris Bate, 1888, Hexapanopeus schmitii Rathbun, 1930, Menippe…

Temporal, diel and spatial variability of decapod larvae from St Paul's Rocks, an equatorial oceanic island of Brazil
TLDR
It is suggested that St Paul's Rocks can be divided into two habitats, based on larval composition, density and diversity values: the inlet and the waters surrounding the archipelago.
Composition of decapod larvae in a northeastern Brazilian estuarine inlet over a full tidal cycle
TLDR
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.
Factors affecting the seasonal variability of planktonic shrimps (Dendrobranchiata) along an estuary–ocean gradient on the Amazon continental shelf
Abstract Dendrobranchiata shrimp taxonomic composition and spatial and temporal distribution on the Amazon continental shelf (ACS) were investigated along a transect between the sources of the Amazon
Abundance and composition of decapod larvae at Saint Paul's Rocks (equatorial Atlantic)
TLDR
The composition, abundance and distribution of decapod larvae were very similar during the 2 years sampled, demonstrating that long-term research is important for acquiring accurate knowledge about the biodiversity of dynamic ecosystems such as those at Saint Paul's Rocks.
Spatio-temporal variability of Brachyura larval assemblages in mangroves of the Gulf of Guayaquil’s inner estuary
TLDR
An ecological baseline for future studies using crab larval assemblages in the assessment of ecological changes occurring in mangrove tidal creeks of the Gulf of Guayaquil is established, demonstrating that crab larvae are physiologically adapted to a wide range of water conditions.
Decapod crustacean larval communities in the Balearic Sea (western Mediterranean): Seasonal composition, horizontal and vertical distribution patterns
TLDR
This work focuses on the species composition of the decapod larval community, describing the main spatio-temporal assemblages and assessing their vertical distribution, and identified four clearly different vertical patterns corresponding to late autumn.
Ecological Aspects and Sexual Maturity of a Southwestern Atlantic Population of the Planktonic Shrimp Lucifer Faxoni (Decapoda: Sergestoidea)
TLDR
The demographic structure and morphological sexual maturity of the shrimp Lucifer faxoni Borradaile, 1915 are described and there is a preference of L. faxoni for offshore areas, probably explained by differences in abiotic factors.
Exportação e retenção de Decápodes Planctônicos (Crustácea) no estuário do Rio Macaé (RJ) (22º22’s-041º46’w)
TLDR
This study aims to characterize the spatial-temporal variations among the planktonic decapods in the estuary of Macae river, southwest Brazil, and identify taxa with the mechanism of larval retention or export.
Swimming behavior of newly hatched larvae of six decapod species (Crustacea: Decapoda)
TLDR
Analysis of the swimming behavior in newly hatched larvae of six common decapod crustaceans in coastal Southeast Brazil finds that Callinectes danae and M. rapax larvae avoided contact with the predatory fish by creating avoidance zones around it, even in the absence of light, which is an active defensive behavior that has never been reported for these two species.
Reproductive biology of the slipper lobster Scyllarides deceptor (Decapoda: Scyllaridae) along the southern Brazilian coast
TLDR
For management purposes, the results suggest the closure of the S. deceptor fishery from November to January and the capture-size of females to be restricted to animals larger than 90 mm (CL).

Seasonal abundance of brachyuran crab larvae in a tropical estuary: Gulf of Nicoya, Costa Rica, Central America
TLDR
Brachyuran crab larvae were sampled approximately monthly at four stations in the Gulf of Nicoya, a tropical estuary on the Pacific coast of Costa Rica, Central America, and showed no consistent pattern in the seasonal abundance of the various taxa when compared among stations.
Dynamic of decapod crustacean larvae on the entrance of Guanabara bay
TLDR
Among the decapod larvae collected, portunids and grapsids were the most abundant, especially during nocturnal ebb tides and near the surface, and Luciferid (Lucifer faxoni) was the only group with high densities during flood tides, suggesting this is an evidence of L. faxoni larvae entering Guanabara Bay in late winter.
Distribution of juvenile penaeid prawns in mangrove forests in a tropical Australian estuary, with particular reference to Penaeus merguiensis
TLDR
It is hypothesised that the distribution of juvenile P. merguiensis inside the mangroves depends largely on the local topography and pattern of water currents within each forest.
ASSOCIAÇÕES ENTRE MACROINVERTEBRADOS E PEIXES DEMERSAIS NA ARMAÇÃO DO ITAPOCOROY, PENHA, SC, BRASIL.
TLDR
The grouping analysis presented greater diversity in the Winter (2.77) and smaller one in the Springtime (1,34); the amplitude of variation H' reflects the great number of species of both occasional and seasonal in the Armacao do Itapocoroy.
Use of a mangrove estuary as a nursery area by postlarval and juvenile banana prawns,Penaeus merguiensis de Man, in Northern Australia
TLDR
In the Embley River, Gulf of Carpentaria, Australia, the largest catches of the commercially important banana prawns, Penaeus merguiensis, were made on mangrove-lined, steeply sloping mud banks, which suggests that either the survival rate of postlarvae is highest in the upper reaches of the small creeks, or that the small p shrimps are migrating from the main river into the creek.
Seasonal and annual variation in abundance of postlarval and juvenile banana prawns Penaeus merguiensis and environmental variation in two estuaries in tropical northeastern Australia:a six year study
TLDR
Over the 6 yr of this project, the annual offshore commercial catch of adult P. merguiensis was significantly correlated with catches of prawns emigrating from the Embley River during the wet season, and increased emigration of juveniles from the rivers was significantly correlation with increased rainfall.
Planktivorous fishes as selective agents for reproductive synchrony
TLDR
The predator avoidance hypothesis predicts that shallow-water crabs' larvae should be relatively well protected from predation compared to larvae of species that are released when predators are avoided, and is tested experimentally by exposing larvae of these species and the sympatric crab to silversides.
Determining the extent and spatial scale of population connectivity: decapods and coral reef fishes compared
TLDR
It is suggested that greater progress towards understanding dispersal and connectivity in the future will best be achieved by integrating the approaches reviewed into large-scale, multidisciplinary, collaborative research programs developed and carried out in association with natural resource managers.
The influence of spatially and temporally varying oceanographic conditions on meroplanktonic metapopulations
TLDR
It is concluded that understanding the dynamics of coastally distributed metapopulations in response to physically-induced variability in larval dispersal will be a critical step in assessing the effects of climate change on marine populations.
