Abstract—Diversity and abundance of Gastropods were determined in seven sampling sites in Bukidnon, Philippines: Maapag, Matay, and Tigua rivers and Lakes Napalit, Apo, and Pulangui for a period of one year from June 2011-May 2012. Pulangui Lake is a manmade impoundment while all the other sites are natural formations. Sampling was done in a 100m × 3m belt transect and gastropods were collected within the belt transect by hand picking and sieving. Seven species representing 5 families were collected. Shannon-Weiner index shows that the highest diversity is in Tigua river (H’= 0.518) and lowest is in Pulangui lake (H’=0.144). Tigua River has also the most abundant gastropod species.

Index Terms—Diversity, gastropods, lakes, rivers, Philippines.
