Litter traits and palatability to detritivores: a case study across bio-geographical boundaries

The activity of the litter-feeding macrofauna affects litter decomposition rates at the local scale, and their preference for particular litter types is mediated by litter traits. Environmental changes such as invasion by exotic plants may change the characteristics of the litter at a local scale, with consequences to ecosystem processes. Here we evaluated the feeding preferences...

Taxonomy of the phyllosoma of Panulirus inflatus (Bouvier, 1895) and P. gracilis Streets, 1871, based on morphometry and molecular analysis

Analysis of wild phyllosoma of Panulirus inflatus (Bouvier, 1895) and P. gracilis Streets, 1871 determined the morphological structures having taxonomic value for differentiation of the two species, in addition to the structures described previously. Of 54 phyllosoma, species identity was confirmed by PCR-restriction fragment length polymorphism (RFLP) on 42 P. inflatus and 4 P...

Pelagic shrimps (Decapoda: Dendrobranchiata and Caridea) collected during the TALUD XIV cruise in the northern Gulf of California, Mexico

A total of six species of pelagic shrimps were collected during the TALUD XIV cruise aboard the R/V "El Puma", in the northern Gulf of California, in April 2011, including two species of Dendrobranchiata [Eusergestes similis (Hansen, 1903) and Sergia phorca (Burkenroad, 1940)], and three species of Caridea [Pasiphaea americana Faxon, 1893, P. emarginata Rathbun 1902, and P...

Phytophilous caridean shrimps (Atyidae and Palaemonidae) in Salsa river (Canavieiras, Bahia, Brazil)

This paper evaluates the role of three species of macrophytes in the population of caridean shrimps in the Salsa river (Northeastern of Brazil). Results revealed that macrophytes have important functions and directly responsible for modulating the spatial distribution of these shrimp species.

Habitat and food selection by herbivorous amphipods associated with macroalgal beds on the southeast coast of Brazil

The factors that influence the selection of marine macrophytes by meso-herbivores are complex, and may include the nutritional quality of algae, the value of the habitat as a shelter, and the availability of algae in the environment. Here we investigated the existence of differential use of Sargassum filipendula C. Agardh, 1824 (Phaeophyta) and Galaxaura stupocaulon Kjellman...
