In the European pond snail dextral("right-handed, "or clockwise) twist or a sinistral Lymnaea peregra, a predominantly dextral species whose ("left-handed," or counterclockwise) twist is one of the handedness is maternally determined, a brood might be most intriguing puzzles in the science of form. Most expected to be exclusively right- or left-handed—and this spiral-shaped snail species are predominantly dextral. But often occurs. However, some broods possess a few snails at one time, handedness (twist direction of the shell) was of the opposing hand, and in predominantly sinistral equally distributed within some snail species that have broods, the incidence of dextrality is surprisingly high. become predominantly dextral or, in a few species, Here, the evolutionary theory must defer to a theory predominantly sinistral. What mechanisms, control based on an explicit developmental mechanism that can handedness and keep left-handedness rare? favor either right- or left-handedness. In the case of It would seem unlikely that evolution should Lymnaea peregra, studies indicate that a dextral gene is discriminate against sinistral snails if sinistral and dextral expressed during egg formation; i.e., before egg snails are...
