The functional morphology of Neotrigonia margaritacea (Bivalvia: Trigoniacea), with a discussion of phylogenetic affinities
Neotrigonia margaritacea is one of six living Australian species of the Trigoniacea, an otherwise extinct group of Mesozoic 'cockles' which dominated shallow inshore seas worldwide. The TrigciniaceaExpand
Phenotypic evolution in a venerid bivalve species lineage from the late Middle Miocene Central Paratethys Sea: a multi‐approach morphometric analysis
Data on the palaeoenvironmental changes in the late Middle Miocene Central Paratethys Sea suggest the phenotypic shifts to be functional adaptations. Expand
The Dynamics of Burrowing of Some Common Littoral Bivalves
Comparison shows marked difference in the time involved in pedal protraction and a see-saw motion of entry to the sand by Cardium and Macoma with bulging shells in contrast to a more direct downward movement of Donax and Tellina with slim shells. Expand
Comparative morphological descriptions of interior shell patterns of the Venerid bivalves: Meretrix lyrata, Mercenaria mercenaria and Venerupis philippinarum using landmark-based geometric morphometric analysis.
The results of the present study can provide more information about the ecology and characteristics of the three species and use this information to devise techniques that can manipulate production yield without the expense of the life of Introduction. Expand
Marine invertebrates of the Pacific Northwest

Relative warp and correlation analysis based on distances of the morphological shell shape patterns of Pomacea canaliculata Lamarck from Japan and the Philippines.
This research carried out to detect variations on shell shapes through geometric morphometry by means of Relative Warp Analysis and analyze and understand the shell shape patterns of Pomacea canaliculata collected from agricultural and freshwater ecosystems found in Lanao del Norte and Misamis Occidental, Philippines and in Kikuchi and Okishi, Japan.
