We conducted laboratory trials to quantify the rates of consumption of native and nonindigenous aquatic plants in Florida, where this snail has been introduced. Twenty-two freshwater plant and alga species were presented to naive P. insularum in laboratory trials, using single-snail replicates and simultaneous (no-snail) controls. Pomacea… Expand
