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.
