Amber Snail on Milkweed


Brewer, S.D.

Amber Snail

For his section of Writing in Biology, the Junior Year Writing Course, Dr. Steven Brewer chooses a theme each semester for the class. In Fall2013 is students are studying terrestrial molluscs, such as this Amber Snail on Milkweed. Amber Snails (in the family Succineidae) are a common and widespread group. Student groups will propose research projects, one of which will be selected for the whole class to ultimately collect data and construct scientific posters.
