The 2000 journals citation report from the Institute for Scientific Information shows that "Advances in Marine Biology" has an Impact Factor of 3.37, the highest in the field. AMB was first published 1963. This volume presents a selection of reviews on the biology of lesser-known taxa of the phylum Mollusca, including: the mostly diminutive protobranch bivalves; the slug-like shelled opisthobranchs; the highly specialized and evolutionarily advanced Tusk shells; and the beautiful, priceless, yet frustratingly hard-to-collect slit shells.

Each of these reviews is complete within its topic. THE QUARTERLY REVIEW OF BIOLOGY
