Freshwater crabs of Africa: diversity, distribution, and conservation




freshwater crabs are among the most important invertebrates inhabiting african inland waters, and these large and conspicuous crustaceans are present in almost all freshwater habitats, from mountain streams to large lowland rivers and smaller water bodies (rathbun 1921; Balss 1936; Bott 1955; Cumberlidge 1999; yeo et al. 2008). The present work focuses on the freshwater crabs of continental africa, which includes northern africa in the Palaearctic zoogeographical zone, and the rest of the african continent that lies in the afrotropical zone.
