Project details


The Strawberry Hermit Crab experiment is useful to understand more about the repercussions of nutrient depletion on atolls with invasive species- particularly Tiaraunu and Tahuna Iti. With the understanding of the crab species' eating habits, we can determine how nutrients are cycling within a certain area. However, the study was inconclusive and did not convey a significant preference for nutrient rich leaves.
