Insights from an Integrated View of the Biology of Apple Snails (Caenogastropoda: Ampullariidae)
ABSTRACT Apple snails (Ampullariidae) are among the largest and most ecologically important freshwater snails. The introduction of multiple species has reinvigorated the field and spurred a… Expand
Immune Defenses of the Invasive Apple Snail Pomacea canaliculata (Caenogastropoda, Ampullariidae): Phagocytic Hemocytes in the Circulation and the Kidney
Hemocytes in the circulation and kidney islets, as well as their phagocytic responses to microorganisms and fluorescent beads, have been studied in Pomacea canaliculata, using flow cytometry, light… Expand

Pomacea canaliculata (Lamarck 1822) occurs mainly in lentic habitats throughout the lower Amazon basin and the Plata basin (Hylton-Scott, 1958; Martín et al., 2001). This Neotropical species has been… Expand
Multicellular spheroid formation and evolutionary conserved behaviors of apple snail hemocytes in culture.
A hemocyte primary culture system for Pomacea canaliculata in a medium mimicking hemolymphatic plasma composition was developed. Hemocytes adhered and spread onto culture dish in the first few hours… Expand

The physiological ability to estivate is relevant for the maintenance of population size in the invasive Pomacea canaliculata. However, tissue reoxygenation during arousal from estivation poses the… Expand
Haemolymph plasma constituents of the invasive snail Pomacea canaliculata (Caenogastropoda, Architaenioglossa, Ampullariidae)
Haemolymph plasma constituents were studied in Pomacea canaliculata. Osmolality, pH, electrolytes, two metals, monosaccharides, total proteins, free amino acids and other nitrogen compounds were… Expand
An annotated checklist of the aquatic Adephaga (Coleoptera) of Egypt. I. Dystiscidae: Agabinae, Colymbetinae, Copelatinae, Dytiscinae and Laccophilinae.
Data from previous literature were used to compile a checklist of the fauna of aquatic Adephaga (Coleoptera) of Egypt. Five subfamilies of the family Dytiscidae were studied: Agabinae, Colymbetinae,… Expand
An annotated checklist of the aquatic Adephaga (Coleoptera) of Egypt. II. Dystiscidae: Hydroporinae
Data from previous literature were used to compile a checklist of the hydroporine fauna of aquatic Adephaga (Coleoptera, Dytiscidae: Hydroporinae) of Egypt. The subfamily Hydroporinae is the most… Expand
