A Synoptical Classification of the Bivalvia (Mollusca)
Preface This classification summarizes the suprageneric taxonomy of the Bivalvia for the upcoming revision of the Bivalvia volumes of the Treatise on Invertebrate Paleontology, Part N.
Morphology and postlarval development of the ligament of Thracia phaseolina (Bivalvia: Thraciidae), with a discussion of model choice in allometric studies
Analysis of the fine structure of the hinge of a growth series of Thracia phaseolina revealed that, instead, external and internal components comprise distinct, independent layers of fibrous ligament, each formed at different ontogenetic stages.
Illustrated glossary of the bivalvia
This glossary defines terms relating to bivalve morphology, anatomy, physiology, ecology, reproduction, taxonomy, evolution, phylogenetics, mineral and organic composition, shell microstructure, and…
Biology and functional morphology of the pallial organs of the Antarctic bivalve Mysella charcoti (Lamy, 1906) (Galeommatoidea: Lasaeidae)
The role of the foot and its ciliature during the processes of dislodgement and burrowing within the sediment are described and M. charcoti is the first known lasaeid with ctenidia formed of the descending lamellae of the inner demibranchs only.
THE FUNCTIONAL MORPHOLOGY OF THE ANTARCTIC BIVALVE THRACIA MERIDIONALIS SMITH, 1885 (ANOMALODESMATA: THRACIIDAE)
There is, therefore, a greater range of morphological diversity within the Thraciidae than previously suspected.
Anthropogenic extinction of Pacific land snails: a case study of Rurutu, French Polynesia, with description of eight new species of endodontids (Pulmonata).
The radiation of endodontids in Rurutu was thus much larger than previously envisaged, and it is hypothesized that all species of the family are now extinct in the island.
Discovery and anatomy of the arenophilic system of cuspidariid clams (Bivalvia: Anomalodesmata)
Discovery of an arenophilic system in cuspidariid clams adds support to the idea that the glands are a synapomorphy of Anomalodesmata, secondarily absent in only one of the major component branches.
Three new species of Ammonicera from the Eastern Pacific coast of North America, with redescriptions and comments on other species of Omalogyridae (Gastropoda, Heterobranchia).
3 new species are added based on a morphological analysis of material in the dry collection of the Natural History Museum of Los Angeles County, applying light and scanning electron microscopies, and are the first omalogyrid species described from the Eastern Pacific coast of North America.

SIPHONAL STRUCTURE IN THE VENERIDAE (BIVALVIA: HETERODONTA) WITH AN ASSESSMENT OF ITS PHYLOGENETIC APPLICATION AND A REVIEW OF VENERIDS OF THE GULF OF THAILAND
Siphonal formation in venerids thus most closely resembles Type A of Yonge, rather than Type B as has been interpreted by most authors, suggesting that siphonal characters are highly homoplastic.
