By R. N. Hughes (auth.), P. J. Mill, C. D. McQuaid (eds.)

Members of the gastropod relations Littorinidae are universal during the global. They shape a really plentiful section of many intertidal and shallow subtidal ecosystems and, via their grazing, usually play a imperative position in shaping those groups. in addition they exhibit a variety of lifestyles historical past concepts and lots of are polymorphic, making them appealing version organisms for ecologists, evolutionary biologists and physiologists alike. components of specific curiosity contain ecological interactions with different animals and with algae, the consequences of pollution 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 components. there's nonetheless a lot to be performed, and the littorinids are proving to be a great crew on which to paintings.
Audience: essentially designated on the learn point. also will supply worthwhile info for complex first-degree scholars accomplishing learn projects.
