f-stop crop

The depth of field is actually the same, but the DoF you can achieve differs. The way to think of it is this:
Put a 50mm on a FF body and shoot a head and shoulders shot at f2.8 and you'll get nice shallow DoF.
Put that same lens on an APSC body and, to compose the same shot, you will need to stand further away due to the crop. That increased subject distance increases the DoF.
However, if you keep the same subject distance, the DoF will be the same...but you would see less of the subject.
