This book covers 34 families of freshwater gastropods and 9 families of freshwater bivalves. Each chapter in the book is a synthesis of the relationships, diversity, ecology, and distribution of these mollusks. There are contributions by 31 malacologists from around the world which have been edited by Charles Lydeard & Kevin S. Cummings.

    Bivalve, (class Bivalvia), any of more t species of clams, oysters, mussels, scallops, and other members of the phylum Mollusca characterized by a shell that is divided from front to back into left and right valves. The valves are connected to one another at a hinge. Primitive bivalves ingest sediment; however, in most species the respiratory gills have become modified into organs of.

Snails is a term applied to most of the members of the molluscan class Gastropoda that have a coiled shell that is large enough for the animal to retract completely into. In particular, freshwater mussels (Bivalvia: Unionoida) are a species-rich group of bivalves comprising about nominal species in six families, including species of Unionidae and 10 of Margaritiferidae, other than Hyriidae, Iridinidae, Mutelidae, Mycetopodidae with extant representatives ranging on all continents except Antarctica Cited by:

The Ecology of Freshwater Molluscs This book provides a comprehensive review ofthe 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, emphasizing in particular the tremendous diversity of these freshwater invertebrates.

The class Bivalvia is one of six classes of molluscs and comprises animals enclosed in two shell valves. Examples are mussels, oysters, scallops and clams. Freshwater ecosystems are the most vulnerable worldwide and freshwater bivalves rank amongst the most threatened animals in the world.

Surveying and monitoring freshwater bivalves are difficult tasks: they are difficult to find, hard to identify (taxonomic expertise is needed), and working underwater is technically challenging.

FRESHWATER MOLLUSKS INTRODUCTION This field guide is intended for use in identification of the 19 currently recognized (September, ) ROD () [Record of Decision] Survey and Manage freshwater mollusks. All of the Survey and Manage taxa are freshwater gastropods (snails).

The basic arrangement is taxonomic, following that in Turgeon et al. Snail descriptive terminology is. The main types of molluscs in fresh water. Three main types of freshwater molluscs can be easily distinguished: snails, limpets and bivalves.

The two following keys should enable you to identify nearly all snails and limpets to species level. For a few species, you may need also to consult published Size: KB. The freshwater bivalves (Mollusca: Order Unionoida) are classified in six families and about genera worldwide.

Worldwide rate of extinction of freshwater bivalves is poorly understood at this time. The North American freshwater fauna north of Cited by: British freshwater bivalve mollusca: Keys and notes for the identification of the species (Synopses of the British fauna ; new ser.

The Mollusca is intended to serve a range of disciplines: biological, biochemical, paleontological, and medical.

As a source of information on the current status of molluscan research, it should prove useful to researchers of the Mollusca and other phyla, as well as to teachers and qualified graduate students. In Freshwater Mollusks of the World, Charles Lydeard and Kevin S.

In the East African Rift, a diversified fauna occurs that only shares a fraction of species with the Nile Basin north of the Albert Nile (> ~5° N).Cited by: Freshwater molluscs are those members of the Phylum Mollusca which live in freshwater habitats, both lotic (flowing water) such as rivers, streams, canals, springs, and cave streams (stygobite species) and lentic (still water) such as lakes, ponds (including temporary or vernal ponds), and ditches.

This article is about freshwater Mollusca in general; for information on one particular family. Lydeard and Cummings have edited a book published by Johns Hopkins University Press (March ) touching on 34 families of freshwater gastropods (snails) and 9 families of freshwater bivalves.

More than titles on snails, mussels, cephalopods, scaphopods and chitons have been published by our publishing house. The book’s many photos and distribution maps remind us what a remarkable array of species once lived in Ohio’s waters, and document the species’ sadly diminished state.” —Dave Strayer, Cary Institute of Ecosystem Studies “The Freshwater Mussels of Ohio is an important contribution to the freshwater mollusk literature.

The North American fauna of freshwater bivalves is the richest in the world, with about species of mussels and clams, nine or so of which are exotic. The phylum Annelida consists primarily of three relatively diverse freshwater groups (oligochaete worms, leeches, and branchiobdellidans), a few species of polychaetes, and the leech-like.Databases Systematic Research Collections (Recent & Fossil Mollusca) - museum collections, curators, and collection managers from around the world (maintained by Kevin Cummings, INHS) Ohio State University Freshwater Bivalve Collection - searchable databases and maps, including mussel/host associations and catalog entries (maintained by Tom Watters).freshwater molluscs are believed to have survived the last period of glacia-tion in B.C., most species have repopulated the province within the past 10 years, moving in from adjacent unglaciated areas.
