Extreme divergence of mitochondrial DNA within species of pulmonate
Five species of pulmonates
were recorded both from wheat and weed leaves two each from wheat and weed leaves only.
Distribution of monoamines within the central nervous system of the juvenile pulmonate
snail, Achatina fulica.
The results of this experiment, in conjunction with other studies, demonstrate that estrogenic chemicals that cause reproductive effects in vertebrates and other aquatic animals also have effects in the fresh water pulmonate
Members of the freshwater pulmonate
family Physidae possess a complex of muscles that is unique amongst gastropods.
Aestivating snails--The physiology of water regulation in the mantle of the terrestrial pulmonate
It includes the pulmonate
snails Physa integra, Helisoma anceps, and often species of Lymnaea.
aspersum, we observed locomotion on concrete by members of several other species of terrestrial pulmonates
to determine if other species were also capable of loping.
are simultaneous hermaphrodites, well-known for their broad variation in life history characteristics.
1983), Achatina fulica (Ohtake and Takeda, 1994), Theba pisana (Nolte, 1983), Arion rufus (Ezzughayyar and Wattez, 1989), and for the aquatic pulmonates
Helisoma duryi (Saleuddin et al.
Earlier authors placed "limneaformis" in with terrestrial pulmonates
, while later assignments were to aquatic viviparids and pluerocerids.
Experimental and comparative morphology of radula renewal in pulmonates
The terrestrial pulmonates
(Stylommatophora, such as Limax or Helix) are equipped with a PC in their cerebral ganglia, whereas aquatic pulmonates
(Basommatophora, such as Lymnaea) are not (Van Mol, 1967; Chase, 2000).
In recent years, the presence of other invading pulmonates
has been reported in diverse geographical points of South America, as is the case of two slugs of European origin, Arion intermedius Normand, 1852 and Tandonia sowerbyi (Ferussac, 1823) in Chile (Cadiz and Gallardo, 2008), which are considered nowadays to be agricultural plagues.
The pleural ganglion is well conserved among other opisthobranchs, as well as pulmonates
(the likely sister taxon of the opisthobranchs; Gosliner 1981), and other gastropods (Bullock and Horridge 1965).
