The following abiotic factors varied significantly between dry and rainy periods: The frequency of ovigerous females Fig.

In April and from July to Novemberno difference in the frequency of juveniles and adults was detected. The sex ratio was analyzed for each month and for the total studied period, and a Chi-square test was applied to verify if it deviated significantly from the expected proportion.

In the case of species with planktonic larvae, it implies the transformation of its habit to a benthic form and survival until the time of settlement Done, We can conclude that the females are more abundant in the population, which is a pattern for callianassids of the Brazilian coast. Thalassinidea under Laboratory Conditions. Services on Demand Journal. Positive correlations mean that the parameters are related to an increase in the animal abundance, while negative correlations, cause the decrease callchirus the animal abundance.

From these ghost shrimps, were sampled in the dry period, and in the dallichirus one. The recruitment of juveniles into the population Fig. The embryonic development of C. The aim of this paper was to study the population ecology of Callichirus major Say, at Piedade Beach, State of Pernambuco, Brazil, through the analysis of parameters such as sex ratio, reproductive period and recruitment of juveniles into this population.


In Brazil, the reproductive callichiru of the callianassids are poorly documented, despite of callihirus importance of this group in coastal benthic communities. 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, The distribution by size class was obtained using 5 mm size classesto determine the mode of each sex.

As coletas foram realizadas mensalmente entre dezembro de e novembro de Recruitment of juveniles into the population occurred throughout the year, between the summer and the autumn. 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. Thus, the males can build deeper burrows than females, and may also callichirue with greater agility.

A modification of Bhattacharya’s method for the analysis of mixtures of normal distributions. According to the correlation matrix, the main abiotic factor influencing the abundance of C. Callianassidae in northern Chile. However, no significant difference was observed between the periods. Sampling Samplings were under taken monthly from December to Novemberin the intertidal zone of Piedade beach, Pernambuco, Brazil, except in September, since no ghost shrimp was found at the beach.

This paper creates a baseline for further researches on C. Marine Biology Both phenomena also explain the higher proportion of females in the population. Sampling was taken monthly from December to November They were classified as juvenile males, juvenile females, adult males, non-ovigerous females and ovigerous females.


In this study, recruitment was intensified between the summer and autumn, as a result of reproductive activity in the summer. callichirjs

These deviations may also be due to biogeographic factors, as well as intra and interspecific factors Rodrigues, Este estudo cria uma linha de base para futuras pesquisas com C. Oecologia Brasiliensis The Student t test was applied to compare the abiotic factors between the dry and rainy periods. Nevertheless, the burrows of the juveniles are shallower and they do not have the escape capacity as the adults.

This superexploitation majr the species may not allow the population to reach their maximum sizes. The total standing stock of the whole area was 2, individuals before summer’s months, with a mean density of de 4. At the laboratory, the individuals were identified and sexed according to Melo Archives of Fisheries and Marine Research46 2: FAO Fisheries Circular16p.
