The Global Decline of Nonmarine Mollusks
An overview of global nonmarine molluscan biodiversity and conservation status is provided, including several case studies documenting the diversity and global decline of nonmarinemollusks.
Global diversity of gastropods (Gastropoda; Mollusca) in freshwater
The world’s gastropod fauna from continental waters comprises ∼4,000 valid described species and a minimum of 33–38 independent lineages of Recent Neritimorpha, Caenogastropoda and Heterobranchia, but the status of the great majority of taxa is unknown, a situation that is exacerbated by a lack of experts and critical baseline data.
Assessing the magnitude of species richness in tropical marine environments: exceptionally high numbers of molluscs at a New Caledonia site
A massive collecting effort involving 400 day-persons at 42 discrete stations on a 295-km2 site on the west coast of New Caledonia, south-west Pacific, revealed 2738 species of marine molluscs, several times the number of species recorded from any area of comparable extension anywhere in the world.
New records, species, genera, and a new family of gastropods from hydrothermal vents and hydrocarbon seeps *
More than 100 species of gastropods from vent and seep localities around the world are reviewed, based on literature information and new material.
Revised Classification, Nomenclator and Typification of Gastropod and Monoplacophoran Families
A fully ranked, hierarchical classification summarizes recent advances in the phylogeny of the Gastropoda and Monoplacophora.
A new operational classification of the Conoidea (Gastropoda)
A new genus-level classification of the Conoidea is presented, based on the molecular phylogeny of Puillandre et al. in the accompanying paper. Fifteen lineages are recognized and ranked as families
