...Stuart M. Linton; Peter Greenaway SUMMARY Digestive juice from the herbivorous gecarcinid land crabs Gecarcoidea natalis and Discoplax hirtipes exhibited total cellulase activity and activities of two cellulase enzymes; endo-β-1,4-glucanase and β-1,4-glucosidase. These enzymes hydrolysed native...

... investigated in the Christmas Island red crab Gecarcoidea natalis acclimated to drinking either freshwater (FW crabs) or 70% seawater (SW crabs). FW crabs released dilute P (mean[Cl - ] 8.8 mmol l -1 ). Drinking 70% seawater caused the mean [Cl - ] of the P to rise to 376 mmol l -1 over 5 days,approaching...
