We will investigate how cheliped autotomy influences female choice and mating success of the red swamp crayfish, Procambarus clarkii. Previous studies showed that females of this species preferred males of larger body size but not larger chelae size. In other crayfish species, chelae asymmetry had no impact on mate choice but no studies have looked...

Project
The production of more comprehensive information on the Kisatchie painted crayfish, a species that is currently listed as Data Deficient. We will discern preferential habitats for this species across its current narrow range, and will look closely at how this organism interacts with other conspecifics.
