    This makes them handy for examining the relationships of the crustaceans to these other groups. For instance, horseshoe crabs, which are chelicerates, have several appendages that are biramous. These include the sixth (or digging) limb, and the eighth through thirteenth (the book gills or respiratory) limbs. Crabs, lobsters, and some other crustaceans have pincers at the front of their bodies, which they can use to pick up or grab prey. Red land crab. Crabs are crustaceans with 10 legs. The front pair of legs has gripping claws or pincers on the end. Crabs mostly have short, wide bodies.

Crustacean. Crustaceans are extremely important members of the planktonic and benthic communities in almost all inland water ecosystems, including wetlands, freshwater and saline lakes, caves, and rivers, even though they represent worldwide only about 15% of the nea described species in the subphylum (with almost all the remaining being marine species).

Get this from a library. Crabs and crustaceans. [Sally Morgan] -- Describes the physical characteristics, habitats and behaviour of crabs and other crustaceans including slaters, prawns and shrimps. Also includes information on observing crabs, pond crustaceans and. Crab, any short-tailed member of the crustacean order Decapoda (phylum Arthropoda)—especially the brachyurans (infraorder Brachyura), or true crabs, but also other forms such as the anomurans (suborder Anomura), which include the hermit crabs.

All artwork and text on the. Sexual Biology and Reproduction in Crustaceans covers crustacean reproduction as it deals with the structural morphology of the gamete-producing primary sex organs, such as the testis and ovary, the formation and maturation of gametes, their fusion during fertilization, and embryonic development that lead to the release of larvae.

Taxonomy. Horseshoe crabs resemble crustaceans but belong to a separate subphylum of the arthropods, Chelicerata. Horseshoe crabs are closely related to the extinct eurypterids (sea scorpions), which include some of the largest arthropods to have ever existed, and the two may be sister groups.

Other studies have placed eurypterids closer to the arachnids in a group Family: Limulidae, Leach, Crustaceans (Crustacea / k r ʌ ˈ s t eɪ ʃ ə /) form a large, diverse arthropod taxon which includes such animals as crabs, lobsters, crayfish, shrimps, prawns, krill, woodlice, and barnacles.

The crustacean group can be treated as a subphylum under the clade Mandibulata; because of recent molecular studies it is now well accepted that the crustacean group is paraphyletic, and Clade: Pancrustacea. Crabs. Crabs have wide, flat bodies, and their head and chest are joined together.

Among their different appendages, they have two claws and four pairs of legs. Some other crustaceans look like crabs but they only have three pairs of legs, so they are not real crabs. The giant spider crab is the biggest crab in New Zealand.

Ghost Crabs (Ocypode sp.) and Blue Land Crabs (Cardisoma guanhumi) are common land crabs along the U.S. south and east coasts. Most types of Fiddler Crabs (the male frequently has one claw much larger than the other) are also considered land or terrestrial crabs.
