AbstractFull Text

Egg reserves of most gastropods are accumulated surrounding the fertilised oocyte as a perivitelline fluid (PVF). Its proteins, named perivitellins, play a central role in reproduction and development, though there is little information on their structural-functional features. Studies of mollusc...

AbstractFull Text

Freshwater bryozoans in much of southern Asia are under assault from invasive apple snails (Pomacea canaliculata and perhaps P. maculata). In lakes and ponds where the snails are present the normal bryozoan populations are sharply reduced or absent. Laboratory feeding trials on inert substrata show ...

AbstractFull Text

Ever since it was found that apple snails have an appetite for rice seedlings, there have been numerous studies on how to control several Pomacea species in rice fields. Unfortunately, less effort has been devoted to investigating the invasive snails' impact on natural wetlands and other aquatic...

AbstractFull Text

Apple snails potentially constitute a valuable source of food in Southeast Asia for poultry, ducks, pigs, fish, prawns and frogs for human consumption. Ducks will eat live snails, including their shells. However, for other livestock species, snail meal without the shells, created via silage, must...

AbstractFull Text

Use of apple snail (Pomacea sp.) shell as a catalyst for biodiesel production was studied using full factorial experimental design optimisation to determine the optimum conditions for production. The calcium oxide (CaO) catalyst was produced by calcination of apple snail (Pomacea sp.) shell at...
