Background Isopods shape features are sensitive and respond to several selective pressures which may result in variations of these features. These pressures might reflect the heterogeneity of the environment where an animal lives. Land isopods Porcellionides pruinosus were collected from an agricultural field. Landmarks geometric morphometrics was...

Three pleurobranch species; Berthellina citrina (Ruppel and Leuckart, 1828), Pleurobranchus grandis (Pease, 1868) and Pleurobranchus albiguttatus (Bergh, 1905) were collected from seven sites in the upper intertidal zone, on the North Western Coast of the Red Sea; Egypt. They inhabit the lower surfaces of medium sized stones in pools containing wat...

Two oribatid mite species belonging to the genus Malaconothrus, namely Malaconothrus ramadani sp. n. and Malaconothrus transversus sp. n., were described as two new species. They were collected from the roots of the floating aquatic plant, Eichhornia crassipes in River Nile, Girga city, Sohag Governorate, Egypt. The first species, Malaconothrus ram...

The male genital system of the water mite, Unionicola aegyptiaca consists of an accessory gland, two spherical testes, two vasa deferentia, common vas deferens, an ejaculatory complex and spermatopositor (penis) and is supported with the male genital skeleton. It is evident that each testis is enclosed in a very thin amorphous layer (basal lamina)...

The hermit crab Clibanarius signatus Heller, 1861 inhabits varied intertidal habitats of the Red Sea coast, such as rocky shores and mangrove littoral salt marshes. Shield-shape variation among three populations of C. signatus was analyzed with geometric morphometric methods. Shape variation was studied through multivariate analyses using configura...
Article
The oribatid mite Trimalaconothrus crassipes n. sp. was described for the first time from the roots of the floating aquatic plant, Eichhornia crassipes, River Nile, Girga, Sohag, Egypt. The present species has the characteristic features that are in accordance with those of family Malaconothridae and genus Trimalaconothrus. The present species has...

The present study dealt with the description of the reproductive and gametogenic cycles and the embryonic development of the freshwater mussel Nitia teretiuscula from the River Nile. Macro and micro-anatomy showed that the present species is dioceous and gonadosomatic indices showed that the species is semiannual and had two gonadal growth periods,...

Mouth parts deformities in chironomid larvae are considered as indicators of environmental stress in aquatic systems caused by water and sediment pollution such as heavy metals, pesticides as well as organic contamination. Fourth instar chironomid larvae were collected from two sites (SI and SII) located in the River Nile, Sohag Governorate, Egypt....

Unionicola aegyptiaca was described for the first time from the freshwater mussel, Caelatura aegyptiaca, River Nile, Sohag, Egypt. The descriptive characters of the present species are in accordance with those of the superfamily, family and the genus. The present species has a specific characters compared with characters of other species of the sam...

Berthellina citrina (Rüppell and Leuckart, 1828) is a common Pleurobranchid gastropod in the intertidal area of the Red Sea. It has distinct color pattern variation from pale yellow, orange to red. The present study aimed to evaluate whether the variation of these color patterns are due to polymorphism, or may be speciation. Anatomically, the three...

Directional orientation of Clibanarius signatus toward different targets of gastropod shells was studied in a circular arena upon exposure to background seawater, calcium concentrations and predatory odor. Directional orientation was absent when crabs were presented with the white background alone. Each shell was tested in different positions (e.g....

The influence of shell status (size, quality and preferred type) on fighting behavior of the hermit crab Calcinus latens was examined. In the present species, the motivation to acquire a new shell is influenced by the value of its own shell rather than that of the rivals. The results suggest that crabs in suboptimal shells were more prone to initia...
Article
The present work aims to study the spatial and temporal variation in the distribution and abundance of Leptochelia erythraea that were collected seasonally during the period July 2006 to April 2008 and the relationships between their abundance and the environmental variables in an intertidal flat on the NorthWestern Coast of the Red Sea, Egypt. Thi...

Question
Dear all
The propodus segment of the crab's claw (chela) showed two distinct parts; manus and fixed finger (pollex). What is(are) the function(s) of each part? Or they do the same functions?
Thanks in advance for Answering my question.
Question
Dear All I work on asymmetry of R-L chelae in a hermit crab. I try to find how much each landmark participates in the overall variation. I find an unclear description (to me, I am not a mathematician) in Klingenberg & McIntyre 1998, Badyaev and Foresman 2000. I appreciate your help, If there is a simple example that I can follow, it will help me a lot.
Question
I preparing a geometric morphometric work on an isopod species in Egypt. the procrustes ANOVA results give 00000 values with one of the parameters (i.e. sex). The article deals with shape changes in two populations. in the analysis, the population is the main effect (Extra 1), sex (Extra 2) and individuals is the random effect. I get the SS and MS for sex 00000. So, what is the problem? I need help in this point.
Thanks in advance

Question
It is difficult to determine age of crustaceans since they have no fixed structure throughout their life. however, future or present investigations may solve this issue.
