Comparative study of condition factor, stomach analysis and some aspects of reproductive biology of two land crabs: Cardiosoma armatum (Herklots, 1851) and Cardiosoma guanhumi (Latreille, 1825) from a mangrove swamp ecosystem, Lagos - Nigeria
2nd International Conference on Biodiversity & Sustainable Energy Development
A total samples of 858 of
) collected from the Lagos Lagoon mangrove area of
the University of Lagos were studied for their frequency, distribution, growth and sex ratio and a comparative analysis was
done on both crabs. Investigation into their length-weight relationships, growth pattern, condition factor, food and feeding habits
were carried out. The calculated Chi-square (
2) test showed that male crabs of
were significantly (p<0.05) more abundant than the female crabs. The Condition factor K values for the
ranged from 3.3 to 30.7 and 3.1 to 28.6 respectively. This research study indicates almost similar biological
features for both species.
