Long-Term Shifts in Faunal Composition of Freshwater Mollusks in Spring-Fed Rivers of Florida

Florida’s freshwater spring and river ecosystems have been deteriorating due to direct and indirect human impacts. However, while the conservation and restoration strategies employed to mitigate

Role of ancient lakes in genetic and phenotypic diversification of freshwater snails

The findings suggest that rapid diversification of lineages and phenotypic divergence can occur in ancient lakes compared to other habitats, and that high numbers of ancient lakes could be a driver of species diversity in Asian viviparid snails.

Reproduction of the freshwater snail Viviparus contectus (Millet, 1813) (Gastropoda: Architaenioglossa: Viviparidae)

The number of embryos per female was the highest during the spring and summer – the period of intense reproduction; females from these lakes showed the highest fecundity in all size classes.

Diversity and Predicted Function of Gut Microbes from Two Species of Viviparid Snails

Using next-generation sequencing of the bacterial 16S V4 region, it is found no significant differences in alpha and beta diversity between Ca.

DNA Barcoding of the Banded Mystery Snail, Viviparus georgianus in the Adirondacks with Quantification of Parasitic Infection in the Species

A new population of V. georgianus is reported from the Adirondacks and its identity is genetically confirmed for the first time using Bayesian analysis, and trematode infection in 200 snails is investigated, finding it serves as the intermediate host of an echinostomatid trematodes species.

Anatomy, functional morphology, evolutionary ecology and systematics of the invasive gastropod Cipangopaludina japonica (Viviparidae: Bellamyinae)

The anatomy, morphology, life history and systematics of Cipangopaludina japonica, a Japanese species that has been introduced into North America, are document to resolve taxonomic confusion and improve understanding of how form and function are related in bellamyines.


Viviparous georgianus, a common gastropod species found in temperate climate marl lakes in eastern North America, records changes in the oxygen isotopic composition of surface water in Woodman Pond,

Distribution of the Non-Native Viviparid Snails, Bellamya chinensis and Viviparus georgianus, in Minnesota and the First Record of Bellamya japonica from Wisconsin

The currently known distribution of the Asian snail Bellamya (=Cipangopaludina) chinensis in Minnesota is documented, along with another viviparid snail, Viviparus georgianus, a North American native whose range has expanded.
