Summary

Cellana tramoserica - common name “true limpet”was discovered by Holten 1802, one of the most diverse and conspicuous herbivore invertebrates on intertidal rocky shores of south-east Queensland.  Shells are variable in heights and colours essentially provide protection to the interious body from being exposed in extraordinary environmental conditions with the heat and wave impacts.  Many of limpet species exhibit a special behavioural characteristic – “homing” movement which enable to sense and return home after foraging away for feeding in few days.  An experiment will be conducted in this project targeting an identification of this behavioural pattern.
