SEA SHELLS AND OTHER MARINE MOLLUSCS OF AUSTRALIA is a great introduction to this diverse family of creatures, which contains over 112,000 species and is second only to the insects in number. The first half of the book gives the reader an insight into the world of molluscs, explaining what constitutes a mollusc, where they live, what they eat, what eats them, how they reproduce, dangerous molluscs and how people have traditionally used and still use these creatures and their shells today. The second half of the book looks at typical mollusc families and species found in Australia. Here the reader learns about the different classes of molluscs – the chitons, gastropods, bivalves and cephalopods. More detailed information is provided about different families and unique Australian species, such as the cowries, cones, clams, abalones, oysters, nudibranchs, octopus, squid and cuttlefish.

 

Filled with wonderful pictures and easy to read text, SEA SHELLS AND OTHER MARINE MOLLUSCS OF AUSTRALIA is a great reference book for the snorkeler, diver, beachcomber or anyone interested in this diverse family of creatures.
