Morphometric Parameters Comparison of Viviparus contectus (Millet, 1813) in Demirköprü Dam Lake, Turkey using multivariate statistical methods
Morphometric Parameters Comparison
Keywords:Viviparus contectus, freshwater snail, Demirköprü Dam Lake, biometric
In this study, some biometric characteristics were assessed in freshwater snail Viviparus contectus (Millet, 1813) from Demirköprü Dam Lake, Manisa province, Turkey. Shell length (SL) (mm), shell width (SW) (mm), aperture length (AL) and width (AW) (mm), spiral height (SPH) (mm), body whorl height (BWH) and weight (W) (g) were measured in individuals (n=63). A multivariate statistical evaluation was performed to determine morphological relationships. Mean of SL, SW, AL, AH, SPH, BWH and W of V. contectus were determined as 28.37±9.48, 17.27±5.19, 14.84±4.22, 10.87±4.00, 3.26±1.09, 25.12±8.87 and 6.52±3.87 mm, respectively. According to principal components analysis (PCA), there was a strong relationship between shell height, body whorl height and weight.
