TRAITS. Goniopsis cruentata, commonly known as the mangrove root crab, is about cm in length at maturity, with a square dark brown carapace that varies in. The present study reports the use of biomarkers analyzes in mangrove root crab Goniopsis cruentata tissues to assess the environmental quality of two tropical. Inhabits brackish muddy waters, often in mangrove swamps (Ref. ), able to move fast between the roots and trunks of trees (Ref. ). Found in burrows .

Cholinesterase, Glutathione-S-transferase, DNA Damage, coastal zone, 48 contamination, crabs, estuary, protected area. S 13 DOI: As in this investigation GST activity was inhibited in crabs from all CR stations, and that literature reports to the presence of metals and organic compounds in CR, we can assume that these responses were due to contamination in CR.

Results suggest that biota from CR is threatened; thus this estuary, as a legally protected area, demands D management actions for conserving such region, preserving the uses and quality of TE natural resources, and assuring the conservation of biological diversity.
