The recruitment of the species occurs in almost the entire study period, but it is intensified right after the reproductive peak, due to the short larval development of this species. In April and from July to Novemberno difference in the frequency of juveniles and adults was detected.

The seasonal variations of juveniles in a population are natural for callianassids, due to predation, environmental and biogeographic factors acting on the larval phases Rodrigues, Annual Review of Ecology and Systematics University of Queensland papersBrisbane, 1 Recruitment of juveniles into the population occurred throughout the year, between the summer and the autumn. The roles of active larval choice and early mortality.

Although not significant, it was considered regularly correlated.


Archives of Fishery and Marine ResearchNehren, 46 2: Marine Ecology9 1: The distribution of ghost shrimps by size class was not normal, i. This paper creates a baseline for callichiruw researches on C.

The distribution by size class was obtained using 5 mm size classesto determine the mode of each sex.

Thalassinidea on a southern Brazilian sandy beach. Arquivos de Biologia e TecnologiaCuritiba, 39 3: After spawning, the larvae usually undergo a series of molts in the open sea and then return to the coast to settle. The burrow and air temperatures were higher in the dry period, and the rainfall was higher in the rainy period. The determination of the recruitment period was based on the months where the juveniles were significantly more abundant than adults.

Spinodae e Callichirus major Say Crustacea: Esta faixa foi dividida em cinco setores: Journal of Experimental Marine Biology and Ecology Population biology of Callichirus major Say, Crustacea: The recruitment of juveniles into the population Fig. A Student t test was applied to compare the value callichirys abiotic factors between the dry and rainy seasons.

According to Hill and Poseysalinity can exert a strong effect in the population of callianassids, due to its seasonal variations. We can conclude that the females are more abundant in the population, which is a pattern for callianassids of the Brazilian coast.


The reproductive period was determined based on the frequency of ovigerous females. Archives of Fisheries and Marine Research46 2: Reproductive periods usually occur in seasons with high temperatures, since the temperature favors the sexual activity and embryonic development, as described by Hill for Upogebia africana Ortmann, and Tamaki et al.

The highest densities were found in beaches with well select very fine sands and gentle slope.

As maiores densidades de C. Callianassidae na Praia de Piedade, Brasil. In this study, the most active reproductive period of C. In Callichrius, the reproductive patterns of the callianassids are poorly documented, despite of the importance of this group in coastal benthic communities.

At the laboratory, the individuals were identified and sexed according to Melo Low temperatures are related to the diminution of the burrowing activity of callianassids.
