The sedentary gastropod Crepipatella dilatata encapsulates its embryos and incubates them in the pallial cavity. Females can deliberately isolate their embryos from the external environment for many hours at a time by pressing their shells tightly against the substrate. We documented the effects of such isolation on pH in the pallial cavity and the effects of reduced pH on changes in shell thickne... read more
