Baby sea snails ride waves into shallower waters, study suggests

The warming ocean may cause the larvae of bottom-dwelling snails to hatch earlier in the spring, when waves are larger, potentially impacting their ability to survive and serve as food for other sea creatures. A Rutgers University-New Brunswick study sheds new light on the sensory organs the snail larvae use to feel -- and perhaps even hear -- whether the water is turbulent or wavy, and improve their odds of being carried to a good habitat where they can settle down as adults.
