About this book

Language: English

Why is it that the Land of Israel has such a great diversity of snails? How do terrestrial gastropods of Israel cope with problems of desiccation, of high temperatures, of predators and of finding mates? How do these aspects determine their distribution? With which colour-patterns are their shells decorated? Who really are the terrestrial gastropods of Israel? Which are the snails and bivalves in its fresh waters? Answers to these and other questions are the topics of this book.

The book is divided into two parts. The first concerns the natural history of Israel's terrestrial gastropods. Beyond basic knowledge without which one cannot proceed, the book focuses on the land snails of Israel. The second part is devoted to a detailed and fully illustrated description of each species, accompanied by its distribution map. The book is addressed to specialists in snails, ecologists, biogeographers, conservationists, travellers and anyone interested in the nature of the Near East.
