• dextral
  • However, like all the snails in the subfamily Planobinae, this snail carries its coiled shell upside down, and thus the shell appears to be dextral in coiling. (wikipedia.org)
  • water
  • Natural populations of these snails are usually found in tropical standing water or freshwater in South America and Africa, but they also reach 30° latitude in subtropical areas. (wikipedia.org)
  • Biomphalaria glabrata can also survive up to 16 hours in anaerobic water using lactic acid fermentation. (wikipedia.org)
  • Typically, Biomphalaria generally prefers stagnant or slow moving water with low wave action and shows a high degree of tolerance to variation in the temperature of its habitat [ 3 ]. (hindawi.com)
  • Restoring prawns to a water-access site upstream of the dam reduced snail density and reinfection rates in people. (cloudfront.net)
  • hatch
  • Because heteroscedasticity was detected with the Levene's test, the nonparametric Mann-Whitney rank sum test (U) was used to compare the overall means of snail shell height, snail mass, and survival 70 d after hatch between annual and perennial treatments. (thefreedictionary.com)
  • Natural
  • This study documented the population dynamics of Biomphalaria and associated natural infections with digenetic trematodes, along the shores of Lake Albert and Lake Victoria, recording local physicochemical factors. (hindawi.com)
  • shell
  • In other families of snails the spire is situated on top of the shell, here what shows on top of the shell is in fact the umbilicus. (wikipedia.org)
  • The width of the shell of adults snails is 6-10 mm. (wikipedia.org)
  • important
  • The South Korean beauty industry has historically been innovative, so they adopted snail slime as an important component in many of their beauty products - including the ones they brought to the United States. (thefreedictionary.com)
  • factors
  • Over a two-and-a-half-year study period with monthly sampling, physicochemical factors were measured at 12 survey sites and all freshwater snails were collected. (hindawi.com)
  • The study found the physicochemical factors that influenced Biomphalaria population and infections. (hindawi.com)
  • activity
  • The central aim of this work is to characterize the specific PO activity present in Biomphalaria hemolymph: this is an essential prerequisite for studies aiming to understand the role of PO activity in snail biology. (biomedcentral.com)
  • high
  • Cult favorites include Mizon All-in-One Snail Repair Cream, an incredibly hydrating product formulated with 92 percent snail extract, and the Benton Snail Bee High Content Essence. (thefreedictionary.com)
