Editorial Reviews


“Provides an updated collation badly needed. . . . Makes exciting reading, all the more so because in providing overviews of work in progress it reflects divergent opinions.”
(Science (AAAS) 2008-05-23)

“[Will] serve as standard reference for evolutionary ecologists over the next decade.”
(Marine Ecology 2009-05-13)

“This book is a must-have for researchers studying molluscan (or even invertebrate) evolution. It includes an incredible amount of useful information, all of which is well-referenced.”
(Bulletin Of Marine Science 2009-05-01)

“The book has been carefully edited and is rich in high-quality figures. . . . A standard reference for evolutionary ecologists over the next decade.”
(Martin Zuschin Marine Ecology 2009-01-01)

From the Inside Flap

"Ponder and Lindberg provides a breathtaking overview of the evolutionary history of the Mollusca, effectively melding information from anatomy, ecology, genomics, and paleobiology to explore the depths of molluscan phylogeny. Its outstanding success is due to thoughtful planning, focused complementary contributions from 36 expert authors, and careful editing. This volume is a must for malacologists."—Bruce Runnegar, Department of Earth and Space Sciences, University of California, Los Angeles

"Our understanding of the phylogeny and evolutionary history of the mollusca has been revolutionized over the past two decades through new molecular data and analysis, and reinvestigation of morphological characters. In this volume Ponder, Lindberg, and their colleagues do a wonderful job of integrating this work to provide new perspectives on the relationships of the major molluscan clades, their evolutionary dynamics, and their history. Particularly timely is the coverage of molluscan evo-devo and genomics."—Douglas H. Erwin, Curator of Paleozoic Invertebrates, National Museum of Natural History

This book is amazing. The organization and layout is ever so pleasing. And there is finally consistency in a field with no consistency! A really integrated piece of work with all of the world's top malacologists coming together to put this on our bookshelves--it's on mine! If you ever need a dissertation or major thesis project just open practically any page of this book and the authors will tell you a plethora of research just waiting to be done. The molluscs are such a wonderful and under-appreciated group of animals, and this book really makes you acknowledge the vastness and wonder that is the mollusc.
