The worldwide decrease in fishery stocks in recent years is related to the degradation of coastal environments and to the increases in capture effort and extreme natural events. Restocking dilapidated populations with artificial hatchery-reared larvae has arisen in recent years as a viable technique for the reparation and maintenance of stocks of commercially exploited species. One of the first steps in larvae cultivation is the evaluation of an appropriate diet for rearing. We aimed to test via...

Fiddler crabs are abundant, semi-terrestrial crustaceans inhabiting tropical, subtropical and warm temperate coasts worldwide. Some species build above-ground sedimentary structures at or near the opening to their burrows. The functions and shapes of these constructions vary interspecifically and according to the sex of the builder. Here, we compile the dispersed reports on these structures, suggest uniform naming for different shapes, review explanations for their functions and explore associat...

Abstract Intertidal organisms rely on physiological and behavioral adjustments to maintain homeostasis under warm exposure. We examined the effects of the temperature increase related to climate warming on the physiology and behavior of two fiddler crab species: Leptuca uruguayensis, which inhabits mostly vegetated areas, and Leptuca leptodactyla, that inhabits unvegetated areas. We hypothesized that L. uruguayensis would be more sensitive to warming than L. leptodactyla. Crabs were exposed to d...

Abstract Rising temperatures due to climate change are expected to drive shifts in species composition, phenological patterns and the productivity of mangrove trees. During early life history stages, such as dispersal and settlement, temperature may affect the survival of propagules and, consequently, drive the distribution of mangrove species. The aim of this work was to evaluate whether low water and air temperatures experienced by propagules during the dispersal and settlement stages, respect...

While increasing awareness about ocean-related topics is a matter of urgent necessity, ocean and coastal-literate schoolchildren are uncommon in Brazil, even in coastal cities. In the present study, we report the activities of an environmental education project spanning a three-year period in Sao Vicente, a city surrounded by marine habitats in the southeastern state of Sao Paulo. This project was part of a university initiative aiming to promote shared knowledge between marine biology student-m...

Abstract Several fish species trigger defensive behavioral responses when exposed to chemical cues that indicate predation risk. In these situations, physiological adjustments are also necessary to prepare the organism for a defensive response and increase survival odds. Chemical cues may be derived from predator odor or injured conspecifics. However, little is known about the effects of both cues combined. Therefore, our study evaluated the combined effects of predator odor (PO) and conspecific...

Abstract Reduction of aggressiveness toward familiar neighbors, when compared to aggressiveness toward unfamiliar strangers, can decrease the costs of territory defense. This phenomenon is known as the “dear enemy effect”. Individuals may shift their aggressiveness toward neighbors or strangers from the same or different species, depending on the relative threat associated with different opponents. Therefore, a reduced level of aggressiveness between heterospecific neighbors is expected in relat...
