Abstract

A preliminary survey on the distribution of gastropods was carried at Kota Kinabalu City Bird Sanctuary (KKCBS) from July 2004 to August 2004 by using quadrat 1m2 in each of four 100m2 plot, two each at different vegetations. This survey was conducted to know the different of species and diversity at two study sites, namely Rhizophora and Avicennia site. Environmental variables also recorded. 7 gastropods species were found at Rhizophora site while 8 species were found at Avicennia site. From the survey, Cerithium sp was the dominant species and can be found at both study sites. They occupied more than 90% of the total gastropods found. Diversity and abundance were higher at Avicennia site. At different tide levels, there were more gastropods found during neap tide. The data of this study provide a valuable baseline for future use of this site
