Gastropod - Gastropod - Reproduction and life cycles: Gastropods originated in the oceans, and relics of this fact are preserved in the early life history of freshwater and land species. Only in the most primitive prosobranchs (such as abalone) are the gametes released into the water for fertilization to take place outside the female. The fertilized egg hatches into a free-swimming form.

  Some gastropods have both sexual organs, meaning that some are hermaphroditic. One interesting animal is the slipper shell, which may start out as a male and then change to a female. Depending on the species, gastropods may reproduce by releasing gametes into the water, or by transferring the male's sperm into the female, who uses it to.

Softbound, xlib, usual signs of use, text in very good condition. $   Gastropods first appeared in the early Cambrian and reached their peak diversity in the Cenozoic. Gastropods may have a calcareous shell or be entirely soft bodied. They have a well-developed head and sensory organs and an expanded muscular foot (Fig. ). In terrestrial gastropods the gills are lost and the mantle cavity is modified into an.   The gastropods, the "belly-footed" mollusks, are the most varied and abundant of the mol-luskan classes group includes the snails and slugs, forms both with and without a calcareous shell. During a history spanning the entire Phanerozoic, gastropods evolved creeping, floating and swimming strategies together with grazing, predatory and parasitic trophic styles.
