With an estimated 35,000 species, terrestrial molluscs are one of the most successful and diverse animal groups in land-based ecosystems. These animals have long been of importance to human societies as food, medicine, crop pests, vectors of parasites, and as tools, personal ornamentation and currency in trade. This book is aimed particularly at students and professionals concerned with terrestrial Mollusca and presents a synthesis of current knowledge and research on the biology of terrestrial molluscs.

Industry Reviews

"This book presents current knowledge and research on the biology of terrestrial gastropod molluscs, examining morphology, phylogeny and systematics, structure and function of the various organ systems, feeding behavior, life history strategies, behavioral ecology, population and conservation genetics, and soil biology and ecotoxicology. Chapters cover areas such as the digestive system in Stylommatophora, regulation of growth and reproduction, spermatogenesis and oogenesis, sensory organs and the nervous system, and blood cell morphology. Contributors are specialists in natural sciences, biology, environmental studies, zoology, and marine studies."--SciTech Book News "This book presents current knowledge and research on the biology of terrestrial gastropod molluscs, examining morphology, phylogeny and systematics, structure and function of the various organ systems, feeding behavior, life history strategies, behavioral ecology, population and conservation genetics, and soil biology and ecotoxicology.
