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 ...
