Crustacean nociception: Comparative

One of the things I like about our new PLoS ONE paper is that it lengthens my list of species for I have published original research by 23%.

  1. Spiny sand crabs, Blepharipoda occidentalis (Paper)
  2. Pearly sand crabs, Lepidopa californica (Paper)
  3. Mole crabs, Emerita analoga (Paper)
  4. Squat lobster, Munida quadrispina (Paper)
  5. Signal crayfish, Pacifastacus leniusculus (Paper)
  6. Cricket, Teleogryllus oceanicus (Paper)
  7. Yabby, Cherax destructor (Paper)
  8. Balmain bugs, Ibacus peronii (Paper)
  9. Slipper lobsters, Ibacus alticrenatus (Paper)
  10. Spanner crab, Ranina ranina (Paper)
  11. Spiny lobster, Panulirus argus (Paper)
  12. Sea squirt, Ascidia interrupta (Paper)
  13. Marmorkrebs, Procambarus sp. (Paper)
  14. Louisiana red swamp crayfish, Procambarus clarkii (Paper)
  15. Grass shrimp, Palaemonetes sp. (Paper; pictured)
  16. White shrimp, Litopaneaus setiferus (Paper)

It’s hard for me to believe that this is the first time I’ve actually published data with Procambarus clarkii, which is used so often, and which I’ve had in the lab for a long time.

And I’m hoping to add to this list at least one more time before the end of the year.
