Baby Sea Snails Ride Waves into Shallower Waters, Study Suggests

Rutgers University-New Brunswick

The warming ocean may cause the larvae of bottom-dwelling snails to hatch earlier in the spring, when waves are larger, potentially impacting their ability to survive and serve as food for other sea creatures. A Rutgers University–New Brunswick study sheds new light on the sensory organs the snail larvae use to feel – and perhaps even hear – whether the water is turbulent or wavy, and improve their odds of being carried to a good habitat where they can settle down as adults.
