The influence of abiotic factors on the distribution of land mollusks: a study of the slug Arion subfuscus.
Hill, Pete; van Helden, Sylvie; Zimmerman, Steve
AbstractIn this study, we investigated the effects of soil moisture, pH, and temperature on the microhabitat distribution of the slug, Arion subfuscus, a terrestrial gastropod mollusk. We did this through a combination of field observations and laboratory inquiry. We found no significant correlation between these factors and slug distribution. Therefore, we accepted our null hypotheses. Postulations for the observed random distribution of the slug are given.
