About this book

Language: English with bilingual summary in English and Russian

Analytical Catalogue of Fresh and Brackish Water Molluscs of Russia and Adjacent Countries summarizes information on taxonomy, nomenclature, distribution ans some aspects of bionomics of molluscs of the former USSR fresh- and brackish waters. This catalogue is a deeply improved and updated version of two previously published catalogue works (Yu.I. Kantor, A.V. Sysoev Catalogue of Molluscs of Russia and Adjacent Countries, 2002, in Russian; and Yu.I. Kantor, M.V. Vinarski, A.A. Shileyko, A.V. Sysoev Catalogue of the Continental Mollusks of Russia and Adjacent Territories, 2010).

In total, the data on 424 nominal species of mussels (Bivalvia) and 728 nominal species of snails (Gastropoda) are included into this book. The actual species richness of aquatic continental molluscs of the former USSR is, perhaps, significantly lower since validity of many of these nominal species may be questioned and a portion of them is destined to become synonymized in future. Each species included into Analytical Catalogue of Fresh and Brackish Water Molluscs of Russia and Adjacent Countries is described using the uniform scheme. During preparation of the book the authors tried to take into account different views on systematization of the ex-USSR aquatic molluscs and to find some correspondence between the 'Russian' system (founded in 1960–1970s by Ya.I. Starobogatov) and the approach followed by malacologists working outside Russia.

Current approaches to the "species problem" in malacology are briefly discussed. Also, the catalogue includes information about distribution of all molluscan species among large regions of the former USSR area, some data about invasions of alien species and the conservation status of indigenous taxa in accordance with IUCN Red List criteria. The quantitative estimates of faunistic similarity between aquatic malacofaunas of the ex-USSR large regions and the results of the cluster analysis carried out on the basis of these estimates are also provided. Analytical Catalogue of Fresh and Brackish Water Molluscs of Russia and Adjacent Countries is addressed to malacologists, biogeographers, hydrobiologists as well as to university lecturers and students.
