About this book

Language: Bilingual in English and French

This 768-page bilingual French/English work is the result of several years of surveying and research by the authors. With more than 3,000 named species listed, of which 2,540 are illustrated, it presents most marine molluscs observed to date in the immense region of the central South Pacific, an area is as large as Europe.

All of this has been made possible thanks to the network that the authors have built up over the years with scientists and malacologists from all over the world and the continued support of the National Museum of Natural History in Paris (NMNH). Nabila Gaertner-Mazouni, Professor of Marine Ecology and Vice-President of the University of French Polynesia (UPF) in charge of research, also contributed her expertise along with other scientists, namely B. Salvat, L. Montaggioni, J.-C. Gaertner and Philippe Bouchet, professor at the NMNH and head of the "La Planète Revisitée" expedition programme.

Summary in French:
Cet ouvrage bilingue français/anglais de 768 pages est le fruit de plusieurs années de prospection et de recherches pour les auteurs. Avec plus de 3 000 espèces recensées, dont 2 540 figurées, il présente la plus grande partie des mollusques marins observés à ce jour dans cette immense région du Pacifique sud central dont la surface maritime est aussi vaste que l’Europe.

Il a été rendu possible grâce au réseau que les auteurs ont tissé au fil des ans avec des scientifiques et malacologues du monde entier et au soutien continu du Muséum national d’Histoire naturelle de Paris (MNHN). Nabila Gaertner-Mazouni, professeure en écologie marine et vice-présidente de l’université de Polynésie française (UPF) en charge de la recherche, a également apporté son expertise ainsi que d’autres scientifiques reconnus ; B. Salvat , L. Montaggioni, J.-C. Gaertner et enfin Philippe Bouchet, professeur au MNHN et responsable du programme d’expéditions « La Planète revisitée ».
