Abstract

Individual growth of the great ramshorn snail Planorbarius corneus has been studied by intravital video imaging. As has been observed, the types of growth change over the embryogenesis. The linear dimensions slightly but in a statistically significant manner decrease during the stages of cleavage to blastula. Starting from the stage of blastula to trochophore, the embryo diameter remains constant to commence increasing at the stage of middle trochophore. During the larval stages (trochophore and veliger), the growth is synchronous (in Dettlaffs, biological time units) for the embryos in both the same clutch and different clutches. The growth at that time is exponential but later desynchronizes in individual clutches. The embryos in eight clutches grew and developed slower and hatched later as compared with the remaining five egg clutches. An accelerated growth follows an asymptomatic pattern according to the von Bertalanffy equation. A retarded growth is describable with a linear equation. The observed differences are likely to be associated with the number of embryos in a clutch. All types of changes in the linear dimensions observed in the great ramshorn snail embryogenesis can be described with the same united equation.
