This study deals with the variations in growth rate and their causation in field populations of the polymorphic landsnail, Cepaea nemoralis (L.) (Pulmonata, fam. Helicidae). The pattern of giowth (measured as increase of shell size) and the influence of several external and of endogenous factors on the growth rate and its variation was, in addition, studied experimentally in the laboratory and the field. The aim was to assess the influence of variation in growth rate as a determinant of the… Expand
