Of 49 species compared quantitatively, only four species changed significantly over 3 yr, including two southern species (the snail Pseudomelatoma torosa, which increased, and the limpet Fissurella volcano, which decreased), and two cosmopolitan species (the snail Homalopoma luridum, which decreased, and the limpet Lottia asmi, which increased).

Six species of gastropods recorded a wide vertical distribution through the intertidal: Lottia mesoleuca, Mancinella speciosa, M.
Limpets (Lottia spp.) graze algae and can have important negative effects on recruits of some acorn barnacles, especially Balanus glandula (Dayton 1971, Paine 1981, Farrell 1991, Berlow and Navarrete, 1997).
Of the six highest values of biomass recorded in Table 2 for limpets, two are territorial and/or gardening species (Lottia gigantea and P.
Clade I contains HeCAl, HeCA12, and CAs from 3 non-annelidan species, Lottia gigantea, Acropora millepora, and Branchiostoma floridae; Clade II contains HeCA12 and CAs from 2 other annelid species, Riftia pachyptila and Capitella teleta; Clade III contains HeCA7 and CAs from 2 other species, Lottia gigantea and Capitella teleta; and Clade IV contains HeCA9 and CAs from 3 non-annelidan species, Trichoplax adhaerens, Acropora millepora, and Branchiostoma floridae.
(2010) identified 11 Hox genes in the gastropod Lottia gigantea (Sowerby, 1834) genome and found that these genes are clustered on a single scaffold and display the same orientation except for one of them, the last posterior gene.

Kemp and Berthess (1984) found that differences in growth rate induced shell shape variation in Littorina littorea; Appleton and Palmer (1988) showed that Thais lamellosa developed differential aperture characteristics when exposed to waterborne stimuli released by predatory crabs and damaged conspecifics; Lindberg and Pearse (1990) demonstrated that the color and apertural morphology of the limpet Lottia asmi changed with different substrates and diets.
