Presentation and discussion during the symposium.

The overall objective of the Freshwater Crab Symposium is to expand on this collaboration in order to produce a more comprehensive review of our knowledge of true freshwater crabs. This will be done through a series of informal talks and discussions that aim at presenting regional updates, sharing information and resources, and providing impetus for future collaborative work. Broad topics that will be covered include definitions, morphological taxonomy, origins and phylogeny, ecology, biogeography, and conservation of true freshwater crabs.
