Analyses of samples from Barbuda, Leeward Islands, show that the strontium/calcium atom ratio of the exoskeleton of the fiddler crab Uca burgersi Holthuis is proportional to that of the environment, whilst the atom ratio magnesium/calcium of the exoskeleton is fairly constant regardless of the environmental ratio.
