The goal of this article was to use a systematic review of studies on the larval stages of gastropods reared to metamorphosis to determine whether there are general patterns for the effects of temperature, rearing density, and food availability on larval development and performance among species, major taxa, and modes of development. Most studies d...

... total of 126 publications were included in this review. Experiments with planktotrophic larvae were the focus of 84 publications (67% of all publications) published from 1967 to the present (Fig. 1). For species with lecithotrophic larvae, 46 articles (37% of the total) were included. The search results also included seven publications on five species with poecilogony, all of which are in the Heterobranchia clade. For poecilogonous species, experiments and experimental treatments conducted on planktotrophic larvae were considered ...
Context 2
... larvae have been studied in the laboratory for decades, with most publications on rearing larvae under experimental conditions through metamorphosis appearing since the mid-1960s (Fig. 1). Considerable information is available for certain species, particularly commercially important species, such as abalone (Haliotis spp.), as well as one species of slipper shell Crepidula fornicata. Although hundreds of studies have been published, surprisingly few report important metadata that allow general questions to be addressed. ...
