Resource availability: Ancient homes for hard-up hermit crabs.

Mollusc shells are a vital but sometimes scarce resource for hermit crabs, protecting them from mechanical damage and desiccation, but they require continual replacement as the crab grows. I have discovered that Coenobita rugosus, a large, tropical, semi-terrestrial hermit crab, will resort to using fossil shells when no other suitable casing is available. These unlikely mobile homes fall out of coastal limestone as it is eroded by the sea in southwestern Madagascar, placing the occupants alongside Homo sapiens as resourceful exploiters of prehistoric animal remains.Department of Zoology, University College Cork, Lee Maltings, Cork, Ireland Nature 2001 Aug 23;412(6849):785-6

Interspecific shell transfer by mutual predation site attendance

The hermit crabs Clibanarius vittatus and Pagurus pollicaris overlap considerably in the species of gastropod shells occupied. Patterns of epibionts on shells suggested interspecific transfer between the crab species. In laboratory observations, however, even when crabs were highly motivated to get new shells, no direct transfers occurred. This lack of exchanges is correlated with different shell exchange behaviour patterns of the two crab species. When simulated snail predation sites were set up in the laboratory and in the field, indirect interspecific transfers were observed as crabs moved from occupied shells to recently vacated shells.

Spermiogenesis in a hermit-crab, Coenobita clypeatus. II. Sertoli cells.

The testes of the land hermit crab, Coenobita clypeatus, contains germinal cells and non-germinative cells. The latter function in the manner of the vertebrate Sertoli cells in apparently providing nourishment, support and possibly hormones during spermiogenesis. Each Sertoli cell surrounds several germinal cells. The mitochondria, rough and smooth endoplasmic reticulum and Golgi apparatus show changes in structure when in contact with germinal cells in different stages of spermiogenesis. These changes are suggestive of active synthesis and metabolism of cellular products(s). Tissue Cell 1980;12(2):255-62

first record of host hermit crab egg predation by a commensal polydorid worm

A new species of Polydora (Polychaeta: Spionidae) from the Indo-West Pacific and first record of host hermit crab egg predation – A new spionid polychaete, Polydora robi, is described from intertidal and shallow subtidal areas in the Philippine Islands and Bali, Indonesia. Polydora robi belongs to the Polydora ciliata/websteri species group and is characterized by a rounded prostomium, triangular occipital tentacle, needlelike posterior notosetae, and a pygidium with digitiform composite cirri surrounding the anus. Adults burrow into empty gastropod shells inhabited by hermit crabs. The burrows of the worms typically extend from an external opening in the apex of the shells to an opening in the central body whorls along the columella. The species was found to ingest the fertilized eggs and developing embryos attached to the pleopods of host hermit crabs. The occurrence of egg predation and the symbiotic relationship between polydorids and hermit crabs is discussed. Known egg predators of hermit crabs are reviewed.

Thacker, Robert W.

Research in my laboratory focuses on the ecology and evolution of marine and freshwater organisms. Recent projects have emphasized chemical ecology, foraging behavior, plant-herbivore interactions, and the community ecology of Indo-Pacific coral reefs. My laboratory uses molecular systematics to place these studies into a comparative phylogenetic context. Current projects include: Community ecology of cyanobacteria. Cyanobacteria dominate many coral reefs and freshwater lakes. Experiments in the field and in laboratory aquaria examine the effects of top-down (herbivory) and bottom-up (eutrophication) factors on cyanobacterial abundance and community structure. In addition, many cyanobacteria produce chemicals that may prevent herbivory or may inhibit the growth of competitors. Molecular techniques are used to examine the evolution of these natural products; Geographic variation in the chemical defenses of sponges. Sponges contain a variety of secondary metabolites that play roles in defense and in the acquisition of space on coral reefs. Studying geographic variation in both defensive chemical production and the effectiveness of defense provides insights on the evolution of these natural products.

Thacker Robert W. Abstract of article

Avoidance of recently eaten foods by land hermit crabs, Coenobita compressus. Land hermit crabs, Coenobita compressus, prefer the odours of foods that they have not recently eaten. I used a laboratory choice assay to quantify observations of these induced food odour preferences and to examine the mechanisms that may underlie the formation of these preferences. A potential benefit of this behaviour to land hermit crabs was examined by measuring the relative growth rates of crabs fed single-item diets and a mixed diet. Sex and age differences among crabs did not affect their formation of odour preferences. Land hermit crabs that were exposed to one food for at least 9h preferred foods having other odours for the next 6h. Crabs avoided odours associated with food consumption. In choice assays using artificial diets, crabs consumed more glucose than casein, yet both nutrients generated an equal amount of avoidance. Land hermit crabs that received a multiple-item diet of flowers, snails and seeds had higher relative growth rates than crabs fed single-item diets. Nutritional analyses showed that these foods differed in their nutritional composition, with flowers containing the most carbohydrates, snails containing the most proteins and seeds containing the most lipids. Broader diets resulting from short-term avoidance of food odours may benefit land hermit crabs by increasing relative growth rates, possibly through the consumption of a more nutritionally balanced diet.

FECUNDITY OF THREE SYMPATRIC POPULATIONS OF HERMIT CRABS (DECAPODA, ANOMURA, DIOGENIDAE) 1019

Publisher: Brill Academic Publishers
Abstract: The fecundity of three coexisting hermit crab populations (of Clibanarius antillensis, C.sclopetarius, and C. vittatus) was studied in the intertidal region of Pernambuco Islet, São Sebastião Channel, southeastern Brazil. Fecundity of all species was positively correlated to the size of the individuals. Differences in egg number among species of hermit crabs were more dependent on crab shield length than on crab species, and showed the following decreasing sequence: C. sclopetarius > C. vittatus > C. antillensis. Clutch dry weight and maximum egg diameter were dependent on crab size and species, testifying particular reproductive strategies for each species. Egg size increased during embryonic development. The influence of shell utilization on hermit crab fecundity is also discussed.
