The cost of living in mixed species populations: A fiddler crab example
Rising sea level is reducing the inter-tidal zone in many mangrove forests. This breaks down the normal species distribution patterns of fiddler crabs, with an increasing number of heterospecifics moving from adjacent zones into an area normally occupied by a single species. Here we examine the interspecific social and sexual interactions that have resulted. We show that male Austruca mjoebergi are just as likely to help their small conspecific neighbor fight off an intruder when the intruder...[Show more]
