Abstract
The effects of temperature on the following freshwater snails were studied: Lymnaea stagnalis, L. emarginata, Helisoma trivolvis, H. anceps, H. campanulatum and Physa gyrina -- all pulmonate 'pond' snails; one gill-breathing operculate (Amnicola limosa); was also tested. Both growth and egg-laying were measured in temperatures ranging from 6 to 36C. Gonad development was determined through serial paraffin sections; reproduction was measured in terms of egg-laying. The lymnaeids grow best at 18C; egg production is better at 22C. In contrast, the planorbids grow better under warmer conditions (about 25C); however, when 30C is reached growth may appear better but reproduction is inhibited. (Modified author abstract)
