Unlike lamellibranch bivalves, suspension-feeding calyptraeid gastropods lack siphons and paired shell valves to regulate water inflow. This study was designed to determine if calyptraeid gastropods use the solid surface to which they attach to facilitate food particle capture. Juveniles of both Crepidula fornicata and Crepipatella peruviana were maintained with phytoplankton for 3 to 6 wk in the ... read more
