Population dynamics of two snail species, Planaxis sulcatus and Cerithium moniliferum, and their trematode species at Heron Island, Great Barrier Reef

Abstract

The population dynamics of the prosobranch snail Planaxis sulcatus and its trematode parasites on 600 m of beachrock on the southern side of Heron Island, Great Barrier Reef, were studied. Populations of Planaxis show little mixing, due to lack of long-distance movements. From March 1973 to June 1975, an increase in the numbers of small and medium-sized… (More)
