Despite major progress in our understanding of animal signaling systems, the identification of chemical signals in aquatic organisms is still in its infancy. Exemplary for this is the lack of structural knowledge of crustacean sex pheromones despite... Read More about Identification of a female sex pheromone in Carcinus maenas.

Interspecific activity of the sex pheromone of the European shore crab (Carcinus maenas) (2008)
Journal Article
Bublitz, R., Sainte-Marie, B., Newcomb-Hodgetts, C., Fletcher, N., Smith, M., & Hardege, J. (2008). Interspecific activity of the sex pheromone of the European shore crab (Carcinus maenas). Behaviour, 145(10), 1465-1478. doi:10.1163/156853908785765872

The recent identification of uridine diphosphate (UDP) as the female sex-pheromone in the European shore crab Carcinus maenas demonstrated not only the link between moult and pheromone production, but also how it may have evolved from a 'simple' meta...

Sex-specific mediation of foraging in the shore crab, Carcinus maenas (2007)
Journal Article
Hayden, D., Jennings, A., Müller, C., Pascoe, D., Bublitz, R., Webb, H., …Hardege, J. (2007). Sex-specific mediation of foraging in the shore crab, Carcinus maenas. Hormones and Behavior, 52(2), (162-168). doi:10.1016/j.yhbeh.2007.03.004. ISSN 0018-506X

Experiments were conducted to investigate the sex-specific differences to feeding responses of the shore crab Carcinus maenas throughout the year. Results demonstrate that female shore crabs exhibit stronger feeding responses than males throughout th... Read More about Sex-specific mediation of foraging in the shore crab, Carcinus maenas.
