About this book

Language: Bilingual in English and Japanese

Descriptions and full-color illustrations of 5106 species of marine mollusks found in Japanese and adjacent waters. The taxonomic coverages are all classes of marine molluscs, namely, aplacophorans, chitons, shell-bearing gastropods, opisthobranchs, scaphopods, bivalves, and cephalopods. Among the taxa in Marine Mollusks in Japan are included micro-mollusks, which were seldom shown in conventional iconographies, newly discovered species, and deep sea species. This is the most reliable and comprehensive data source of molluscan fauna in the subarctic to subtropical Northwest Pacific and its marginal seas. Marine Mollusks in Japan also illustrates underwater photographs of live animals as well as plates showing the shells
