Members of the gastropod kin Littorinidae are universal through the international. They shape a really considerable section of many intertidal and shallow subtidal ecosystems and, via their grazing, usually play a relevant function in shaping those groups. additionally they exhibit a variety of existence historical past techniques and lots of are polymorphic, making them appealing version organisms for ecologists, evolutionary biologists and physiologists alike. components of specific curiosity comprise ecological interactions with different animals and with algae, the results of toxins and using littorinids as sentinel species for tracking pollutants, the consequences of parasites on development and ecology, taxonomy, and the research of genotypic/phenotypic responses to environmental elements. there's nonetheless a lot to be performed, and the littorinids are proving to be an incredible workforce on which to paintings.
Audience: basically special on the learn point. also will supply priceless info for complex first-degree scholars engaging in examine projects.
