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
The ligamental apparatus of Thracia comprises external and internal resilient components, as well as a calcified ossicle termed the lithodesma. All these elements have hitherto been considered… Expand
Biology and functional morphology of the pallial organs of the Antarctic bivalve Mysella charcoti (Lamy, 1906) (Galeommatoidea: Lasaeidae)
Mysella charcoti is an Antarctic lasaeid bivalve and the most frequently encountered mollusc in Admiralty Bay, King George Island, South Shetlands. The behaviour of the species in aquaria, combined… Expand
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… Expand
Anthropogenic extinction of Pacific land snails: a case study of Rurutu, French Polynesia, with description of eight new species of endodontids (Pulmonata).
Faunistic surveys are fundamental in the conservation of land mollusks, particularly as a means of achieving accurate estimates of species richness and levels of extinction of endangered taxa. The… Expand
THE FUNCTIONAL MORPHOLOGY OF THE ANTARCTIC BIVALVE THRACIA MERIDIONALIS SMITH, 1885 (ANOMALODESMATA: THRACIIDAE)
The functional morphology of the Thraciidae is poorly understood. Although some morphological aspects of several members have been described, only Trigonothracia jinxingae from Chinese waters is… Expand
Treatise Online no. 61: Part N, Revised, Volume 1, Chapter 4: The early shell: Ontogeny, features, and evolution
Three new species of Ammonicera from the Eastern Pacific coast of North America, with redescriptions and comments on other species of Omalogyridae (Gastropoda, Heterobranchia).
The family Omalogyridae comprises some of the smallest known marine snails. Like all micromolluscs, they have been historically neglected and are underrepresented in faunistic surveys. Based on a few… Expand
Arenophilic mantle glands in the Laternulidae (Bivalvia: Anomalodesmata) and their evolutionary significance
The mantle margins of several anomalodesmatans bear multicellular arenophilic glands, the mucoid secretions of which attach sand grains and other foreign particles to the outer surface of the… Expand
Sticky bivalves from the Mesozoic: clues to the origin of the anomalodesmatan arenophilic system
Arenophilic glands represent the only molluscan example of multicellular organs solely concerned with adhesion of foreign particles to the external surfaces of an organism. The glands are exclusive… Expand
