Article
Horseshoe crab (Tachypleus gigas) is an archaic group of marine species which plays a vital role in the saline ecosystem. We attempted to develop a baseline database about the ecology, phylogeography, and genetic variation among the horseshoe crab population from Odisha, India. We collected 152 samples of horseshoe crab from the coastal area of the...
Chapter
Anthropogenic activities influence the survival and reproduction of horseshoe crabs in their marine-associated habitats. On the northeast coast of Odisha, India, a large number of them die every year. The use of fishing gear has been identified as the major cause for their mortality. A total of 6546 specimens of entangled T. gigas were recorded in...
Chapter
As a marine arthropod, horseshoe crab has persisted for more than 200 million years and is still enjoying its life on earth without much morphological modifications. Out of the four extant species, two species, namely Tachypleus gigas (Müller 1785) and Carcinoscorpius rotundicauda (Latreille 1802), are found along the northeast coast of Bay of Beng...

Although horseshoe crabs have ecological and biomedical value, their restricted distribution in the northeast coast (Odisha, West Bengal) to a limited number of researchers have made them an understudied arthropod in India. With an objective that uses ‘desktop review’ for horseshoe crab ecology, biology and their life cycle in India, it is learnt t...

Horseshoe crab ( Tachypleus gigas ) is an archaic group of marine creature which plays a vital role in the saline ecosystem. Many researchers emphasize and enhance the knowledge about the horseshoe crab's basic biology, morphology, and ecology, whereas very little information is available about its population genetics. We attempted to develop a bas...

The capacity of organisms to change their sex has evolved independently in several species. Sex change has been widely studied, but research approaches have differed and conclusions have often been specific. Although sex allocation theory provides a unifying framework for the study of sex change, this unity has not always been appreciated, Environm...

Horseshoe crab in India face significant threats throughout their range including habitat loss, habitat degradation, human disturbance, potential prey resource depletion and increasing threats from predators . Understanding the current breeding distribution of Indian horseshoe crab is the first step toward planning conservation actions needed for t...
Article
Full-text available
Four species of horseshoe crabs exist today. All the four species of horseshoe crabs are classified as either near threatened or data deficient. Out of the four, two species are distributed along the northeast coast of India. Spawning activity has been adversely affected by the degradation and destruction of spawning beaches. The study was carried...

Project
Adequate and effective conservation measures to protect these valuable breeding beaches along the coast of Odisha is therefore important. This project aims to Map the critical spawning ground along the Odisha coastline and to implement conservation measures to mitigate impacts on horseshoe crab populations along the coast of Odisha and focuses on raising conservation awareness among local stakeholders.
Project
1. Assessment of Manmade activities effects on the breeding ground of Horseshoe crab in Orissa. 2. Identifying the most influential factors that worked in favour and/or against to the nesting sites of Indian Horseshoe Crab. 3.Cleaning the breeding beaches to enable the horseshoe crab for successful spawning. 4. Bring up the awareness among the local fisher man and different community people (Local teachers and volunteers) around these breeding and nesting sites. These mechanisms will help the volunteers to sustain the programme on long term after completion of this project. 5. Environmental camp Through community participation will be organized in this area to create awareness among the local people not to kill this species and not to disturb their breeding ground and in the local nearby secondary school to make students active involvement in this conservation aspect
