Looking for your snail...!

We would like to ask you for help with collecting live Burgundy (=Roman) snails (Helix pomatia) for our research project. We are trying to find out where the species originated, where it survived the climatic changes in the last hundreds of thousands years, from where it spread to various parts of Europe and how was its distribution influenced by human actions. Therefore we need a quite dense network of samples throughout large parts of Europe. For mutual comparison, we are seeking Helix from both human-influenced localities and more natural environments. We need for molecular analyses, most conveniently living individuals (which are easy to store and send).
