Life cycles of crabs include embryos, larvae, juveniles and adults that may inhabit different habitats and, consequently, cope with differing environmental cues. Embryos and adults of many estuarine crabs must tolerate diluted water, whereas their oceanic planktonic larvae live under constant salinity. The goal of this study was to investigate the effects of low salinity experienced during the embryonic phase on the survival and growth of larvae reared at low and high salinities. The observed effects of salin…
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute on Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
