There are many theories regarding their presence along the North American shores. During exposure to the air, feeding and locomotion are halted unless conditions are very damp. Most of the information available suggests that adult gastropod molluscs are rather tolerant of heavy-metal toxicity (Bryan, 1984). Herbivory - Herbivores, primarily L. littorea , reduce abundance of ephemeral algae; herbivores strongly promote the appearance of Fucus vesiculosus in New England (Lubchenco 1986). Ulster Museum Marine Surveys of Northern Ireland Coastal Waters. Permissions beyond the scope of this license are available at http://www.marlin.ac.uk/termsandconditions.

Plymouth: Marine Biological Association of the United Kingdom. Periwinkle, in zoology, any small marine snail belonging to the family Littorinidae (class Gastropoda, phylum Mollusca).Periwinkles are widely distributed shore (littoral) snails, chiefly herbivorous, usually found on rocks, stones, or pilings between high- and low-tide marks; a few are found on mud flats, and some tropical forms are found on the prop roots or mangrove trees. This stems mainly from its ability to accumulate trace elements and compounds and consequential behavioural changes.

RESULTS APPROACH • Individuals of Littorina littorea, L. obtusata, and L. saxatilis were collected from two study populations and acclimated for … In organisms encountering predictable environments, fixed development is expected, whereas in organisms that cannot predict their future environment, phenotypic plasticity would be optimal to increase local adaptation. Fretter, V. & Graham, A., 1994. The species tends to aggregate and form clusters in areas that are more favourable for them, such as rock pools, rather than drier areas. Increases in siltation for a year may have some influence in changing substratum type and removing available habitat such as nooks and crevices. The principal species is Littorina littorea, with 3144 tonnes, mainly derived from Ireland (3018 tonnes) and Spain (126 tonnes). Predators include a variety of shore birds, fish, crabs and lobsters.

The name Littorina littorea was in common use among scientists by the 1830s-1840s, but the species was originally described by Linnaeus (1758) as Turbo littoreus. This species probably has limited facility for noise vibration detection and as such is unlikely to be sensitive to noise. Adults are slow crawlers so active immigration of snails is unlikely. & Johannesson, K., 1995.
