A geometric morphometric analysis of heterochely in the Red Sea hermit crab Clibanarius signatus and their developmental stability and modularity
Geometric-morphometric analysis is growingly used to quantify/analyze biological forms and discriminate among subtle variation in shape. The hermit crab “_Clibanarius __signatus__”_ showed subtle heterochely; therefore, geometric morphometric analysis helps to determine visually these shape changes. Individuals of “C. signatus” were collected from a mangrove site on the Egyptian Red Sea coast. The present study aimed to: "1" detect the different ... Read more
