The concern with invasive non-native species that exploded in the public consciousness beginning in the 1980s has focused especially on striking predators (e.g., Burmese python, lionfish), highly visible plants that overgrow native vegetation (e.g., kudzu, killer alga [Caulerpa taxifolia]), and biting and stinging insects that threaten human health (e.g., red imported fire ant, yellow fever [and zika] mosquito). Invasive snails rarely attract news- paper headlines and television spots. They are slow, they don’t bite humans, and most are inconspicuous. Many have not been studied extensively, and the lay public cannot readily recognise features that distinguish them from native snails.  Download HERE
