About this book

Opisthobranch gastropods and their marine pulmonate relatives have tended to lose their shells as a consequence of being protected by chemical defense. This book examines how these animals have evolved the capacity to synthesize metabolites that were originally obtained from their food.

The book forms part of the Proceedings of the California Academy of Sciences.
