Abstract

Morphological and biochemical adaptations of two Mediterranean mollusks Gastrana fragilis and Monodonta turbinata to living in the littoral zone which is most exposed to abiotic factors are analyzed. Hemoglobin favoring to a certain extent their survival under constantly changing environmental conditions was quantified in the mollusks.
