Abstract/Description

This study looks at Periwinkle climbing behavior in Murrell's Inlet, South Carolina during the fall season (September thru October). Studies were performed in field to determine if there was a gradient between stem and sediment temperatures and how they related to snail height in the cooler months of fall. A laboratory experiment was set up to determine if differential climbing occurred between heated snails, room temperature snails, and room temperature snails placed on heated sediments.
