About this book

The first two chapters provide general background information on the phylum mollusca; classification, general organization, abundance, distribution, size and diversity are all covered. The values of molluscan diversity are explained bringing out their importance as objects of aesthetic, commercial, food and biomedical nature and role in marine biodeterioration. The references at the end of the chapter would provide additional information and help in further research. Thus the format of the book has been so devised to facilitate both a beginner and also a serious worker with some knowledge of mollusca.

Chapter 3 deals with the systematic account of Polyplacophora and Gastropoda consisting of as many as 530 species belonging to 80 families. Under each class and family and some subfamilies important diagnostic characters are given.
