About this book

Bivalve Seashells of Tropical West America is the most comprehensive book ever written on tropical Pacific Ocean bivalves.  

The culmination of a nine year study, it treats all bivalve mollusks living from northern Baja California, México to northern Perú. A total of 890 species are described and illustrated with over 5000 color photographs and detailed drawings. All habitats in the region are included from the intertidal splash zone to the abyssal depths of the ocean basins.
 
The book has over 5000 complete bibliographic references to the bivalves including citations on the biology, physiology, ecology, and taxonomy of this commercially and biologically important group. Character tables and dichotomous keys assist the reader in identification. Also included in the 1258 page book is an illustrated key to the superfamiles of the region, and a complete glossary.
