Phylogeny and Evolution of the Mollusca, Hardback Book

Phylogeny and Evolution of the Mollusca Hardback

Edited by Winston Ponder, David R. Lindberg


Brought together by Winston F. Ponder and David R. Lindberg, thirty-six experts on the evolution of the Mollusca provide an up-to-date review of its evolutionary history.

The Mollusca are the second largest animal phylum and boast a fossil record of over 540 million years.

They exhibit remarkable anatomical diversity and include the bivalves (scallops, oysters, and clams), gastropods (limpets, snails, and slugs), and cephalopods (squid, cuttlefish, and octopus).

This study treats each major taxon and supplies general information as well as overviews of evolution and phylogeny using data from different sources - morphological, ultrastructural, molecular, developmental, and from the fossil record.
