About this book

This book, first published in 2000, provides a comprehensive review of the ecology of freshwater bivalves and gastropods worldwide. It deals with the ecology of these species in its broadest sense, including diet, habitat and reproductive biology, emphasising in particular the tremendous diversity of these freshwater invertebrates. Following on from these introductory themes, the author develops a life history model that unifies them, and serves as a basis for reviews of their population and community ecology, including treatments of competition, predation, parasitism and biogeography. Extensively referenced and providing a synthesis of work from the nineteenth century onwards, this book includes original analyses that seek to unify previous work into a coherent whole.


Preface; 1. Introduction; 2. Bivalve autecology; 3. Gastropod autecology; 4. Life history; 5. Population dynamics and competition; 6. Parasitism; 7. Predation; 8. Biogeography; 9. Communities.
