The Mollusca, Volume 6: Ecology provides an overview of the state of knowledge in molluscan ecology. It is part of a multivolume treatise that covers the fields of biochemistry, physiology, neurobiology, reproduction and development, evolution, ecology, medical aspects, and structure.

The Mollusca, Volume 7: Reproduction presents the significant features of reproduction for one of the significant major molluscan groups.

This book reviews the reproductive biology of land snails, which offers the basis for making fascinating comparisons with other terrestrial groups in illustrating how evolutionary various groups solved their common problem of laying eggs.

This book and its companion volume provide the first comprehensive account of the Mollusca in decades. Illustrated with hundreds of colour figures, it reviews molluscan biology, genomics, anatomy, physiology, fossil history, phylogeny and classification.5/5(1).

The Mollusca is intended to serve a range of disciplines—zoology, biochemistry, physiology, and paleontology. It will prove useful to researchers and to all others with interests in molluscs. The book contains four chapters and begins with a chapter on the behavior of gastropod mollusks.

FROM THE GENERAL PREFACE: This multivolume work, The Mollusca, had its origins in the mid s with the publication of two volumes entitled Physiology of Mollusca and edited by Wilbur and Yonge.

In those volumes, 27 authors collaborated to summarize the status of the conventional topics of physiology as well as biochemistry, reproduction and development, and : M. Clarke. The Mollusca, Volume 5: Physiology, Part 2 focuses on the biochemistry and physiology of mollusks.

The selection first elaborates on the feeding biology of gastropods and feeding and digestion in Bivalvia and cephalopods. About the book Description Reviews the most important literature on the functional morphology and natural history of molluscs over a period of half a century, from to the present day, and draws extensively upon authoritative papers published mostly in the English language in a large number of international journals during this period.

"Ponder and Lindberg provides a breathtaking overview of the evolutionary history of the Mollusca, effectively melding information from anatomy, ecology, genomics, and paleobiology to explore the depths of molluscan phylogeny.

Its outstanding success is due to thoughtful planning, focused complementary contributions from 36 expert authors, and careful editing.

About the Book. Brought together by Winston F. Ponder and David R. Lindberg, thirty-six experts on the evolution of the Mollusca provide an up-to-date review of its evolutionary history.

The Mollusca are the second largest animal phylum and boast a fossil record of over million years. Book Description. This volume provides individual treatments of the major molluscan taxa. Each chapter provides an overview of the evolution, phylogeny and classification of a group of molluscs, as well as more specific and detailed coverage of their biology (reproduction, feeding and digestion, excretion, respiration etc.), their long fossil record and aspects of their natural history.

Classes in Phylum Mollusca. Phylum Mollusca is a very diverse (85, species) group of mostly marine species, with a dramatic variety of form. This phylum can be segregated into seven classes: Aplacophora, Monoplacophora, Polyplacophora, Bivalvia, Gastropoda, Cephalopoda, and.

Bivalve Molluscs is an extremely comprehensive book covering all major aspects of this important class of invertebrates. As well as being an important class biologically and ecologically, many of the bivalves are fished and cultured commercially (e.g. mussels, oysters, scallops and clams) in a multi-billion dollar worldwide industry.
