Vertical zonation has a great effect on the intertidal snail Cerithium scabridum. This was clear from studying the abundance, population structure and spatial distribution of this snail from intertidal to subtidal zones in Lake Timsah, Suez Canal. The results showed that there was a significant difference in the abundance and prevailing size groups. Also, highly significant variations among depths and between sites were recorded for the growth of shell height, shell width and total weight.
