This chapter presents the experimental approaches used to study and conserve Hawaiian tree snails or the O'ahu tree snails of the genus Achatinella. It describes field-demographic studies that were carried out to identify the causes of population declines. It then discusses ex situ conservation or captive propagation efforts to conserve varieties and species rapidly vanishing from native habitats. Finally, it examines the application of molecular genetics to field management practices.

Keywords:   Hawaiian tree snails, O'ahu tree snails, Achatinella, ex situ conservation, captive propagation, molecular genetics, field management practices
