Some new things there are: Lots of new pictures of the of my friend Mica's handsome snails. Some interesting diagrams of snails we counted for the Evolution Megalab. A whole new section on the genetics of banded snails, as described on the FAQ page of the Evolution Megalab. As my English sometimes is a bit weird, I would, as usually, very much appreciate and feedback you have for me, also concerning possible scientific errors.
And there also is a pretty picture for you in the attachment.
I'm doing my dissertation on Cepaea nemoralis and colour polymorphism in relation to predation, and climbing behaviour. I've had to write 10,000 words on the general topic of Cepaea and colour polymorphism; if you want, when I've finished I could share some of my findings with you? Or my references so you could look it up yourself? I actually found your page when I was doing research Really liked the pictures

thank you kindly for your feedback There will also be an article on banded snails in the next Arthropoda magazine, only it will be in German. I would like to know, where to publish something like that in English! (Arthropoda is a magazine for friend of evertebrate terrarium animals).
Speaking of which: I would also very much like to read you dissertation, as soon as it's completed.
Kind regards Robert

That's a fascinating article, Robert! I've always been fascinated by genetics (I love the book Genome by Matt Ridley), so it was great to hear the genetic background for the snails I keep. Beautiful pictures, too!
