The objective of the work was to study behavioural change of Cyclope neritea (sea snail) and Nassarius mutabilis (land snail) upon exposure to different levels of PAHs. Snail’s behaviour was translated and expressed in Behavioural State Score (BSS) where the score ranged from “0” to “5” points refers to the ascending level of locomotion of a snail. A significant difference was found in snail’s behaviour in 25.0 mg/L than in 0.5 mg/L with p value smaller than 0.01. BSS scores appear most…

BEHAVIOURAL CHANGES IN FRESHWATER SNAIL BELLAMYA BENGALENSIS DUE TO ACUTE TOXICITY OF COPPER SULPHATE AND ACACIA SINUATA
TLDR
The toxicity of copper sulphate and A. sinuata was responsible for the behavioural changes in freshwater snail B. bengalensis, and it was concluded that any toxicants or any molluscicide wereresponsible for the alterations in behavioural of animal body.
Impacts of particulate matter (PM2.5) on the behavior of freshwater snail Parafossarulus striatulus
TLDR
The results suggest that high PM2.5 deposition in water bodies, associated with acidification and some metals, can have an adverse effect on aquatic organisms.
Effect of aluminum and silicic acid on the behaviour of the freshwater snail Lymnaea stagnalis
TLDR
Snails exposed to all three Al compounds showed depression of behavioural activity after 7 days; this effect was ameliorated in the presence of higher but not lower concentrations of Si, presumably owing to polymerisation as the colloidal hydroxide.
Amelioration of behavioural toxicity of aluminium by oligomeric silicic acid and humic acid
TLDR
The results suggest that the presence of complexing ligands may affect toxicity of Al in the natural environment at neutral pH.
Generalized system of imposex and reproductive failure in female gastropods of coastal waters of mainland China
TLDR
In imposex females, the penis shape and the development of the vas deferens were similar to those of the male of the same species, and the morphological expressions of imposex showed diverse stages and types.
Effects of benzo(k)fluoranthene, a polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbon on DNA damage, lipid peroxidation and oxidative stress in marine gastropod Morula granulata
TLDR
It is shown that B(k)F induces oxidative stress in snails which further lead to genotoxic damage in gastropod Morula granulata exposed in vivo for 96 h.
Food arousal in the pond snail, Lymnaea stagnalis.
Behavioral thermoregulation in a tropical gastropod: links to climate change scenarios
TLDR
A correlation between BT and substrate temperature (ST) was detected from field observations which suggests a possible causal relationship between both substrate and BTs and supports the crucial need to integrate intertidal invertebrate behavioral responses to thermal constraints in climate change studies.
