Radix balthica, the wandering snail, is found throughout NW Europe. Because of its tolerance for extreme and varied environmental conditions this species is an excellent model for determining the traits which species might possess that could be beneficial for survival under altered environmental conditions, such as climate warming and increased saline intrusion into freshwaters.
There is a recent interview with Radix about the “Wandering Snail (Radix balthica)” available to read on the we-make-money-not-art site.
This gallery contains 12 photos.
The Wandering Snail (Radix balthica) project was recently installed in Riga, Latvia for the FIELDS Exhibition organised by RIXC.
