Vivekanandan, E and Haniffa, M A and Pandian, T J and Raghuraman, R (1974) Studies on energy transformation in the freshwater snail Pila globosa 1. Influence of feeding rate. Freshwater Biology, 4 . pp. 275-280.
The effects of eleven chosen feeding levels ranging from 0 to 198 mg damp dry (plant) Ceratophyllumlg live snail /day on the absorption, conversion and metabolism of the snail Pi/a globosa (of 1•9 g body weight) have been studied. Absorption rates increased from 3•0 to 21•0 mg dry food /g live snail/day in snails fed 3-4-28'8 mg dry food/ g live snail/day. In these snails, absorption efficiency decreased from 87•5 to 73•0 %.
