Can snails fly in the sky?: Testing hypothesis of long distance dispersal of snails by migrant birds (Can snails fly in the sky?)

In this study, we try the first exhaustive survey of land and freshwater snails on Svalbard. After that, we try to define the original populations of land and freshwater snails on Svalbard with the comparison of DNA sequences between Svalbard and the snail populations on wintering places for migrant birds.

Thank you for adding your research project to the growing pool of knowledge about the research going on in Svalbard and its surrounding waters!

As we would like you to know a bit about what is going on in Svalbard in your discipline and fieldwork surroundings, we have selected some projects that should be interesting for you to have a look at. There are {{related}} projects registered in RiS that match with your keywords, and below you will find links to the 3 that have the most relevant match.

As we all work to reduce our environmental footprint, we want to give you an easy way to find projects that have fieldwork close to you, so you can contact the project owner and coordinate your logistics whenever possible. This could also help you save some expensive costs ;) There are {{close}} projects registered in RiS that have registered their fieldwork sites within 10 km from you, and below you will find links to the 3 closest fieldwork locations.

Summary

It is reasonable that snails migrate with birds, however, it is unclear whether they can migrate for long distance or not. The geographical specialty of Svalbard provides wonderful opportunity to test the hypothesis "snails can fly in the sky", because the history of ecosystem on Svalbard is very short. In this study, we try the first exhaustive survey of land and freshwater snails on Svalbard. After that, we try to define the original populations of land and freshwater snails on Svalbard with the comparison of DNA sequences between Svalbard and the snail populations on wintering places for migrant birds. The DNA sequences of snails on Svalbard should be same from original populations.
