Abstract. The best way to reduce problems related to invasive species is by preventing introductions into potentially susceptible areas. The purpose of this study was to create distribution models…
Invasion of the Argentinean Paranense Rainforest by the Giant African Snail Achatina fulica
Abstract: The tropical land snail Achatina fulica Bowdich, 1822, native to Africa, is reported for the first time in Argentina, in Puerto Iguazú City, Misiones Province. This city is surrounded by…
Population dynamics of planorbid snails from a lenitic biotope in northeastern Argentina. Larval trematodes of Biomphalaria occidentalis and analysis of their prevalence and seasonality
Theba pisana (Müller, 1774) (Gastropoda, Helicidae) and other alien land molluscs species in Argentina
The most likely pathways for introduction of terrestrial gastropods, at least in Argentina, are horticultural development and urban and suburban transformation of original natural habitats.
FRESHWATER GASTROPODA FROM ARGENTINA: SPECIES RICHNESS, DISTRIBUTION PATTERNS, AND AN EVALUATION OF ENDANGERED SPECIES
In Argentina, the north-south decline species pattern could be explained through Rapoport's rule and in Patagonia, the species richness gradients do not show significant west-east trends.
FRESHWATER GASTROPODS FROM DEL PLATA BASIN, ARGENTINA. CHECKLIST AND NEW LOCALITY RECORDS
Resumen en: The greatest floral and faunal biodiversity estimated from Argentina -not including molluscs - is found in three subtropical forests belonging to the de...
Non-native mollusks throughout South America: emergent patterns in an understudied continent
The first list of non-native mollusk species for South America, considering terrestrial, freshwater and marine environments, includes 86 NNMS distributed in 152 ecoregions of the 189 recognized for the South American continent.

Many land snails are vulnerable to climate change as a consequence of small distribution ranges and poor dispersal. South America is a diverse region in terms of land snail fauna, but studies about…
Larval survival strategy during winter of Chordodes nobilii Camerano, 1901 (Gordiida, Nematomorpha)
It is demonstrated that egg development of Chordodesnobilii takes 20–25 days at 22°C and 45–55 days at 5°C, and that larvae of C. nobilii obtained from egg strings at 5 °C and maintained at that temperature during six months remained inside their egg shells as a survival strategy.
