The great pond snail, Lymnaea stagnalis, is a calciphile, requiring approximately 20 mg/l dissolved calcium for natural populations to live long and prosper. However, despite population survival we have previously demonstrated that acute exposure for 1 week to low environmental calcium (20 mg/l) acts as a stressor on the snail, blocking long-term memory (LTM) formation. This response to calcium availability is mediated by the snail directly sensing the calcium concentration in its environment… CONTINUE READING
