eScience. Left vs Right Handedness in Crustaceans

For us humans, some people are right-handed and some people are left-handed, although you’d never be able to tell just by looking at them. Not so for the tiny crustacean known as the amphipod, where the right or left claws can grow substantially larger than the other. Dr Pablo Munguia and PhD student Katherine Heldt explore how sexual selection led to this dramatic difference. Read all about their research in the final issue of eScience.
