Thoracic limbs in crustaceans

Post by Charlie » Mon Nov 21, 2005 2:05 pm

Hi!
I have been set a couple of questions I can't really find a lot about (that makes sense to me anyway!)

Does anyone know how the structure of the Thoracic limbs in crustaceans changed between the swimmer and the walkers?

All I have at the moment is that the limb sometimes turns into a smaller maxilliped for feeding. I was wondering if there was anymore knowledge about it. It is in relation brind shrimp compared to shore crabs if that helps?

Thanks.
