About this title


100 color photo plates illustrate 1600+ species, including species not illustrated in other identification books, & show variation within many species. Covers Gastropoda, Bivalvia, Scaphopoda and Cephalopoda, and includes 4 plates devoted to land snails and fresh water gastropods. All species are annotated with a concise description and a distribution profile within the Philippines. This is an essential book for any shell library.

From the Inside Flap:

Shells of the Philippines is the first book of its kind devoted entirely to the identification of mollusks occurring within the Philippines. For the first time, shell collectors can avail themselves of a comprehensive guide to most of the shells likely to be encountered in a trip to the islands. Over 1.600 species are illustrated in 100 fill color plates, and coverage includes the Gastropoda, the Bivalvia, the Scaphopoda and the Cephalopoda. In addition, four plates are devoted to land snails and fresh water gastropods, covering two groups, some briefly, others in more detail. All species are annotated with the currently accepted scientific name (including author and date), a brief but concise description, and a distribution profile within the archipelago. Many illustrated species are as yet unnamed by science, and still others have never before been illustrated in any identification guide. At the end of some family groups, additional notes are presented which attempt to clarify certain problematical species.

This regional guide will be an indispensable addition to the bookshelves of all collectors.
