Likewise presence of Melanoides tuberculata of the Thiaridae
family is well known as a species that can tolerate the presence of low dissolved oxygen and high suspended particulate matter in river's water .
Among the families are Neritidae (Rafinesque 1815), Viviparidae (Gray 1847), Ampullariidae (Guilding 1828), Bithyniidae (Gray 1857), Pomatiopsidae (Stimpson 1865), Stenothyridae (Fischer 1887), Paludomidae (Gill 1871), Thiaridae
(Troschel 1857), Lymnaeidae (Rafinesque 1815), Planorbidae (Rafinesque 1815), and Ancylidae (Rafinesque 1815).
In Brazil, the most common gastropods belong to the families Planorbidae, Ampullariidae, Hydrobiidae, Thiaridae
and Pleuroceridae (Drugg-Hahn et al., 2007) and practices such as barrier construction, canalization, drainage and pollution of water bodies, especially by the indiscriminate use of pesticides in crops, have contributed to the destruction of the natural habitat of many species, causing their disappearance, as observed in several records of anthropogenic actions over time (Mansur et al., 2003; Allan, 2004; Souza & Melo, 2012; Muller, Granada & Sperotto, 2016).
