Rare Land Snails of the Cherokee National Forest

Southern Appalachian Information Node

A manual on rare land snails is now Web-enabled and on the SAIN Web site
through a book reader application developed by Farial Shahnaz. The book reader application provides several options for navigating the manual including by table of content, page browsing, and direct links using species name. The manual, written by Dr. Ronald Caldwell and Daniel Dourson, was funded by the Forest Service. "Rare Land Snails of the Cherokee National Forest” includes information on the Southern Appalachian snail fauna, collecting techniques, survey protocol, and an identification key with illustrations for rapid identification. In addition, the manual also describes ecological communities where these snails may be expected to occur.
