Goby–shrimp mutualism: Costs and benefits of obligate versus facultative strategies

Abstract:

We model the mutualism interactions between gobies and shrimp based on recent experimental work on the shrimp Alpheus floridans and the facultative and obligate gobies Ctenogobius saepepallens and Nes longus in the Bahamas. We show that the model is consistent with observations, and suggest that obligate mutualism may favour rapid speciation in gobies due to their restricted spatial range. We calculate the resilience of the goby-shrimp systems to evaluate the robustness of the mutualist inter...
