In my PhD thesis I investigate the male and female reproductive system of different species of true crabs (Eubrachyura). Due to its complexity, the reproductive system of eubrachyurans offers an excellent possibility to investigate morphological and phylogenetic questions. Modern morphological methods such as µCT scans and 3D reconstruction are used and complemented with (paraffin) histology as well as electron microscopy.
