Members of the gastropod family members Littorinidae are universal in the course of the international. They shape a really considerable portion of many intertidal and shallow subtidal ecosystems and, via their grazing, usually play a primary function in shaping those groups. in addition they exhibit quite a lot of lifestyles historical past suggestions and plenty of are polymorphic, making them beautiful version organisms for ecologists, evolutionary biologists and physiologists alike. components of specific curiosity contain ecological interactions with different animals and with algae, the consequences of pollution and using littorinids as sentinel species for tracking toxins, the consequences of parasites on progress and ecology, taxonomy, and the examine of genotypic/phenotypic responses to environmental elements. there's nonetheless a lot to be performed, and the littorinids are proving to be a great workforce on which to paintings.
Audience: basically distinct on the examine point. also will offer important info for complicated first-degree scholars carrying out learn projects.
