Juveniles and adults of the Brown garden snail (Helix aspersa Müll.) were fed on an artificial diet contaminated with Zn (ca. 40-12,000 micrograms.g-1 dry wt), Cu (ca. 9-1600 micrograms.g-1 dry wt), pb (ca. 0.4-12,700 micrograms.g-1 dry wt), Cd (ca. 0.16-145 micrograms.g-1 dry wt), and all four metals mixed together for 120 days. Significant negative exponential regressions of food consumption and fecundity on concentrations were found for all treatments. Growth rate was affected significantly… CONTINUE READING
