Abstract

Summary

, a large operculate snail, is capable of limiting the growth of populations under certain laboratory conditions. The mechanisms of this control action is a complex of several characteristics of . This snail is a voracious herbivore, which, in the course of feeding on vegetation, ingests the egg-masses laid there, is also capable of destroying small newly-hatched , probably by ingesting them. Other aspects of the biological control of populations by are discussed in relation to the experimental results and their possible field implications.
