    About This Project

    Snails and crabs occupy the land-water ecotone across Africa, but very little is known about them. These animals transmit parasites that infect people. This research aims to shed light on the behavioral ecology of these species to provide insight into their roles as intermediate hosts for disease. In January 2014, we will travel to South Africa to study the behavior of the crabs and snails in their natural habitat.
    Blast off!
