Ecology of tropical hermit crabs at Quirimba Island, Mozambique: distribution, abundance and activity




A diverse assemblage of 16 species of hermit crabs occurs on the shores of the Quirimba Archipelago, northern Mozambique Each species illustrated marked zonation such that they formed a distinct sequence from the subtidal across the wide intertidal zone to the supra-l~ttoral. In addition to shore height zonation, there was distinct variation in type and range of habitat preferences. Of the 5 study islands, Quirimba and Quisiva had the greatest intertidal habitat variety end the largest number of resident hermit crab species.
