Biochemical changes in decomposing leaves and crabs of Pichavaram mangroves


Biochemical changes in decomposing leaves and crabs of Pichavaram mangroves



Biochemical and Cellular Archives 4(2): 79-86



A study was conducted to determine the biochemical changes in decomposing mangrove leaves in relation to the biochemical composition of mangrove crabs. Freshly fallen leaves of Avicennia marina, Rhizophora mucronata and Acanthus ilicifolius were collected. On the other hand, live specimens of Sesarma brockii, S. andersoni, S. plicatum, Metapograpsus maculatus and M. messor were collected for biochemical analysis.
