Mussels represent an important food source in many parts of the world, including Europe, South America and the Far East, and they have considerable potential as a protein source for many developing countries. In addition, mussels are widely used in pollution studies, and in fundamental ecological and physiological investigations. Marine Mussels: Their Ecology and Physiology, first published in 1976, is a critical review of information on this group of animals, and sets out the material with suggestions for the future direction of research. The subjects covered include the ecology, physiology, biochemistry, genetics and the culture of mussels. It is an important volume, not only for researchers working with marine molluscs, and with mussels in particular, but also for those in the wider fields of marine ecology, comparative physiology and aquaculture.
