When male sand crabs (Emerita analoga) were introduced to groups of non-ovigerous female sand crabs held at three different temperatures in the laboratory, egg production by the females was seen to be a function of temperature in several respects. A much larger proportion of females produced eggs in warmer water than in cold, and eggs were produced more rapidly in warm water than in cold. Egg development time was considerably shortened by warm water. These differences in egg production may affect relative zoeal output in the extremes of the range of E. analoga, which in turn may affect patterns of recruitment and therefore population structure for the crabs.
