Abstract

Protection from wetting (freshening) and drying of layers of the intertidal gastropod Littorina sitkana Philippi, 1846, specified by direct development was studied. It has been shown that the jellylike material of the layings did not protect the developing embryos from changes in the environmental salinity, but rather protected them from drying periods up to 12 h.
