Data from: Correlation of shell phenotype and local environment suggests a role for natural selection in the evolution of Placostylus snails

Eddy J. Dowle, Mary Morgan-Richards, Fabrice Brescia & Steve A. Trewick
The giant edible Placostylus snails of New Caledonia occur across a wide range of environmental conditions, from the dry southwest to the wetter central and northeastern regions. In large, slow-moving animals such as Placostylus, speciation could be assumed to be largely driven by allopatry and genetic drift as opposed to natural selection. We examined variation in shell morphology using geometric morphometrics and genetic structure within two species of Placostylus (P. fibratus, P. porphyrostomus), to determine...
