The Global Decline of Nonmarine Mollusks
Abstract Invertebrate species represent more than 99% of animal diversity; however, they receive much less publicity and attract disproportionately minor research effort relative to vertebrates.Expand

Comparing apples with apples: clarifying the identities of two highly invasive Neotropical Ampullariidae (Caenogastropoda)
Ampullariidae comprises two lineages of freshwater gastropods: one Old World and one New World. Recent molecular work confirmed the monophyly of the family and began to clarify generic relationships,Expand

Refining molluscan characters: morphology, character coding and a phylogeny of the Caenogastropoda
Midgut morphology of gastropod molluscs has been underutilized as a resource of characters for phylogenetic analysis. The exclusion of these features reflects the inference that they will beExpand
