Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Shell used in shellcraft (Ref. 349). Abundant in rocky reefs, either in exposed or in protected areas and in clear to turbid waters. Most common just below the low tide marks. Members of the family Strombidae are mostly herbivores , browsing on delicate algae, or swallowing sand and detritus to digest the decomposing plant matter (Ref. 349). Members of the order Neotaenioglossa are mostly gonochoric and broadcast spawners. Life cycle: Embryos develop into planktonic trocophore larvae and later into juvenile veligers before becoming fully grown adults (Ref. 833).
