Snips of Snails

The Sydney Morning Herald posted this article about the Asian tramp snail (Bradybaena similaris), whose populations have been begun expanding along the NSW coast of Australia. Scientists think the snails are thriving due to what has been a hot, humid summer in Sydney. Turns out Asian tramp snails are efficient hitchhikers, and have also made their presence known in Florida.

Thanks to members of the ALIENS-L listserver for posting links to the article and related web pages.
