Abstract Studies have been carried out on the synergistic effects of sublethal concentrations of mercury (Hg) and/or cadmium (Cd) in conjunction with temperature and salinity stress on larval and adult fiddler crabs, Uca pugilator. Six biological parameters of the adult organism were monitored including survival, tissue uptake, metabolism, behavior, microscopic anatomy, and enzymatic activity, using metal concentrations of 0.18 ppm Hg and 1.0 ppm Cd. Studies with larval stages (zoeal stages I, III, V and megalops) considered survival, metabolism and behavior under conditions of 1.8 ppb Hg and 1.0 ppb Cd. The effect of mercury or cadmium on Uca pugilator depends upon a number of factors, including stage of the life cycle, sex, thermal history, and environmental conditions. Data presented here suggest that the mode of action of the two metals is not the same.
