Forest snail faunas from Georgian Transcaucasia: patterns of diversity in a Pleistocene refugium
Thirty forest sites in Georgia were sampled to obtain inventories of their land snail faunas. The sites, in nine sampling areas, ranged from Batumi near the Turkish border to Lagodekhi near the
Citizen Science Reveals Unexpected Continental-Scale Evolutionary Change in a Model Organism
TLDR
This work tested for evolutionary changes in shell albedo that might have been driven by the warming of the climate in Europe over the last half century by compiling an historical dataset for 6,515 native populations of C. nemoralis and comparing this with new data on nearly 3,000 populations.
Geographical variation in the composition and richness of forest snail faunas in northern Europe
The forest snail fauna of northern Europe originated from postglacial colonization from the south. While it is regionally poor (c. 150 species, excluding slugs), individual localities (clusters of
Habitats of relict terrestrial snails in southern Siberia: lessons for the reconstruction of palaeoenvironments of full‐glacial Europe
Aim  Shells of fossil molluscs are important for palaeoecological reconstructions. However, the habitat requirements of snail species typical of central European full‐glacial loess sediments are
Variation in Cepaea populations over 42 years: climate fluctuations destroy a topographical relationship of morph‐frequencies
Cepaea hortensis (Gastropoda: Pulmonata) populations in Hertfordshire, England, originally sampled in 1964–66, and sampled again in 1990, were sampled in 2007. Although the general pattern of shell
Forest Snail Faunas From S. E. Queensland and N.E. New South Wales (Australia): Patterns Of Local and Regional Richness and Differentiation
TLDR
The comparative richness of the eastern Australian fauna is thus largely related to evolutionary processes that have caused divergence at regional scales, rather than increased niche-packing or syntopic diversity at site scales.
Land Snail Faunas in Polish Forests: Patterns of Richness and Composition in a Post-Glacial Landscape
TLDR
The western bias in the relationships of lowland faunas to those of the highlands, the differences between large and small species and the varying rates of faunal turnover within the area studied suggest that patterns of post-glacial dispersal are complex and incompletely understood.
