It is generally considered as a monophyletic clade that lives exclusively in limnic and brackish habitats. Thus, it may provide a suitable model for the reconstruction of evolutionary transitions of euryhaline shrimp from ancestral state of living in the sea towards invasions of freshwater environments. Reviewing patterns of the biology adaptative physiological and reproductive traits and modern biogeographic distribution of this clade, I propose here a scenario for its tentative origin and evolutionary invasion of limnic inland waters, especially in the Americas. Macrobrachium shows: 1 a world-wide tropical to subtropical distribution, with only few species occurring in temperate regions and none in cold waters at high latitudes; 2 a clear preference for low salinity conditions based on strong osmoregulatory capacities ; 3 larval export strategies in coastal species with diadromous migrations and invariably an extended larval development in estuaries ; and 4 almost exclusively an abbreviated and lecithotrophic mode of larval development in hololimnetic inland species. The extant patterns of geographic distribution of this genus are strikingly disjunct, with completely separate groups of species occurring in the Indo-Pacific region where maximum diversity occurs , in West Africa, and in the Americas.

The relative quantity of food remaining in each container after the feeding was observed so that the ration size could be adjusted to minimize the waste. Parastacidae juveniles fed isoproteic diets with partial or total substitution of fish meal by soya bean meal: Effect of the concentration tene,lum nutrients in the culture medium.

Macrobrachium — Wikipedia, la enciclopedia libre The principles and practice of statistics in biological research. Since there was no information related to the M. In conclusion, results indicate macrobrachiim the growth of M. Statistical analysis was carried out according to Montgomery In addition, the natural food contribution under pond-culture conditions should be also considered.

Total survival was recorded for all the treatments at the end of the experiment. Enough water was added to make stiff dough. Macrobrachium Aquaculture84, Macrobrachium Spence Bate However, the source and quality of the soya bean meal should be taken into consideration when a formulated diet is elaborated. Individual standard length cm and wet weight g were determined at the beginning of the experiment and each two weeks for 45 days.

Since plant protein meals are cheaper than animal protein sources, much research has been focused in substituting animal protein with the plant protein meals Akiyama, ; Kikuchi, In the formulated practical diets in the aquaculture, protein is the most expensive energy component, and its quality represents a very important nutritional aspect.
