Coevolution of host-parasite associations and methods for studying their cophylogeny
A description of several different methods for studying host-parasite relationships, along with a description of the underlying models and theoretical background for each, and the possible applications of different methods is shown.

The genetic structure of 33 European populations of this slug, based on two molecular markers, mitochondrial cytochrome c oxidase subunit I (COI, mtDNA) and nuclear zinc finger (ZF, nDNA), suggests that A. vulgaris has originated from a region spanning from France to Western Germany; hence, the slug is probably alien/invasive in other parts of Europe, where it occurs.
Arion vulgaris Moquin-Tandon, 1855 – the aetiology of an invasive species
A review of the biology, nomenclature, distribution, characteristics, control methods and status of A. vulgaris, considering various hypotheses which may explain its invasiveness.

The genetic data as well as shell phenotypes showed considerable variation within and between studied populations, the molecular species delimitation approaches still imply only one single species.

The malacofauna of Żywiec was sampled from May to November in 2012 and 2013 in 33 localities. A total of 57 species (one with its form) were recorded: 53 gastropods (40 terrestrial, 13 freshwater)…

Terrestrial gastropods - how do they reproduce?
A general review of sexual systems and strategies in terrestrial gastropods with special emphasis on mating, fertilization, presence of love darts, reproductive strategies (semelparity vs. iteroparity) and modes (oviparity, ovoviviparity), production of eggs and egg cannibalism.
