A field guide to the land snails of Britain and north-west Europe
Describing and illustrating nearly 300 species of slug and snail found in Britain and North-West Europe this book includes notes on diagnostic characteristics, habitats and range. There is alsoExpand
MITOCHONDRIAL PHYLOGEOGRAPHY OF THE LAND SNAIL ALBINARIA IN CRETE: LONG‐TERM GEOLOGICAL AND SHORT‐TERM VICARIANCE EFFECTS
TLDR
Maximum parsimony and neighbor‐joining phylogenetic analyses demonstrate a complex pattern of speciation and differentiation and suggest that Albinaria species from Crete belong to at least three distinct monophyletic groups, which, however, are not monophyletsic with reference to the genus as a whole. Expand
Evolution MegaLab: a case study in citizen science methods
TLDR
The aim of the Evolution MegaLab was to exploit the occasion of Charles Darwin’s double centenary in 2009 to mobilize the widest possible section of the general public in Europe to help survey shell polymorphism in the banded snails Cepaea nemoralis and CEPaea hortensis. Expand
The effect of elevated ambient temperature on spermatogenesis in the boar.
TLDR
In some boars heat stress early in the treatment period produced an acute rise in body temperature which appeared to have a greater effect on semen quality than did the duration of exposure, although changes were seen in individual animals. Expand
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 theExpand
Land snail faunas of the Napier and Oscar Ranges, Western Australia; diversity, distribution and speciation
TLDR
A study of snail faunas of the Napier and Oscar Ranges, Western Australia finds that within one major taxonomic group (Gastropoda), a community may be partly structured by competition and exclusion and partly by accidents of colonization and accumulation: some, but not all niches may be full. Expand
The molecular epidemiology of four outbreaks of porcine pasteurellosis.
TLDR
This study has shown that both, systemic and pneumonic pasteurellosis can be associated with either a single strain or multiple strains of P. multocida, and indicates that the molecular typing methods of REA and ribotyping are superior to biochemical characterisation for epidemiological investigation of porcine pasteuresllosis. Expand
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. Expand
Effect of body composition at selection on reproductive development in large white gilts.
TLDR
The rate of fat and protein deposition seems to be one of the determinants of puberty attainment in Large White gilts. Expand
