Learning in Crustacea

  • Franklin B. Krasne


The Crustacea have been called the “water-breathing insects of the sea” (Schmitt, 1965). Although they have invaded both freshwater and terrestrial habitats, this description gives a reasonable intuitive feeling for many of the general behavioral and morphological characteristics of the class.
