- ... The rough periwinkle Littorina saxatilis is characterised for showing shell phenotypic variation associated to environmental clines and this is found in parallel across shores. In order to disentangle the additive genetic effects and the environmental factors involved in this variation, we analysed natural populations subjected to a gradient in wave exposure and crab predation in 3 different Rias ...
