Egg predation and parasite prevalence in the invasive freshwater snail, Melanoides tuberculata (Müller, 1774) in a west Texas spring system
Melanoides tuberculata Müller, 1774 (Thiaridae), a freshwater prosobranch snail native to regions of Asia and Africa, was introduced into the U.S. in the 1960s and is now found in fifteen states. Melanoides tuberculata can affect native communities directly by displacing native snail species and indirectly by introducing foreign trematodes into novel environments. As the exact mechanisms of displacement of native snails by M. tuberculata are unknown, egg predation rates on native snailsdoi:10.3391/ai.2012.7.2.016 fatcat:s2oktsvkbjhobahcfw25f5fyxm
