Habitat loss is a serious issue for any
individual in terms of its ability to
survive, forcing it to adapt quickly to a
state of greater vulnerability as well as
having adverse and unforeseen side-
effects on the whole population. Indeed,
habitat removal is one of the principal
causesofspeciesrarityandendangerment,
and thus a major concern in the
conservation of wildlife as well as a prime
objective in the management of pest
species. To tackle this growing and still
relatively unexplored field of research,
Patrick Doncaster's team is investigating
responses by rocky-shore periwinkle
snails to the depletion and redistribution
of their resources of food and refuge
