Description
Counts of observed mangrove crabs and their relationship with the environment (abiotic data for the location where the crabs were found).

Factors controlling the distribution of Kenyan brachyuran mangrove crabs: salinity tolerance and ecophysiology of two Kenyan Neosarmatium species. MSc Thesis. Vrije Universiteit Brussel (ECOMAMA): Brussel. 152 pp.
