... Neohelice granulata , a grapsid crab, to show that there are significant differences between the crabs' escape responses in the field compared with those previously documented in laboratory experiments. These differences are consistent with contextual adjustments such as the availability of a refuge...

...Jonathon H. Stillman; George N. Somero ABSTRACT We examined physiological and biochemical responses to temperature and aerial exposure in two species of intertidal porcelain crabs (genus Petrolisthes ) that inhabit discrete vertical zones. On the shores of the Northeastern Pacific, P. cinctipes...
