“This two-volume set provides up-to-date reviews that are useful both for new entrants to the field of molluscan physiology and also for established researchers. While the emphasis of the collection is on neurobiology and behaviour, there are also excellent reviews covering a range of fields including physiological, biochemical and biophysical processes underlying biomineralization, estivation, envenomation, locomotion and reproduction. The compilations of modern overviews together with commentaries and perspectives by leading investigators warrant reading both volumes cover to cover by anyone working on or even just interested in molluscs and their diversity.”
—Roger Croll, PhD, Department of Physiology and Biophysics, Dalhousie University, Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada
Physiology of Molluscs: A Collection of Selected Reviews is an informative two-volume set that brings together some of the most important recent and unique developments in molluscan physiology.
