Fiddler Crabs


Following is a fairly comprehensive list of papers, books, and theses that deal or refer to fiddler crabs. The list currently contains 3,181 references (last updated 2014-04-14). Many of these papers (particularly the older ones) are primarily taxonomic lists. I tried to leave out papers which just casually refer to fiddlers without providing any information (e.g., “...the results of these experiments on the lobster are similar to those seen in green crabs and fiddler crabs.”).

The references can also be downloaded as compressed Endnote, RIS (text), or RIS (XML).

Linked references contain information on every name applied to fiddler crabs within the publication, including context and the correct name as we currently understand it. These data are in the process of being compiled (chronologically for all publications I have access to a copy of), with most references still incomplete.

In a list of this size, there are bound to be errors, omissions, and mistaken inclusions. Please feel free to send me corrections.
