The first comprehensive guide to the molluscs of the Gulf of Mannar, The molluscs of Gulf of Mannar, India, and adjacent waters provides a detailed pictorial portrayal of 1041 species of molluscs, including 722 gastropods, 287 bivalves, 7 scaphopods, 21 cephalopods and 4 polyplacophorans. This field guide sums up two decades of biodiversity surveys and explorations initiated by two premier institutions in India, Suganthi Devadason Marine Research Institute (SDMRI), coordinating the Tropical Marine Mollusc Programme (TMMP) in India, and the Department of Aquatic Biology & Fisheries, University of Kerala. The spectacular diversity of molluscs found in the Gulf of Mannar and adjacent waters in India is described with excellent photographs in multiple views, facilitating easy species identification also by laypeople. The habitats, diversity, ecosystem services, ecology and commercial value of molluscs are also highlighted. This fully illustrated guide will assist the academicians, researchers, conchologists, divers, students, civil society groups and the general public in realizing the diversity of exquisitely biodiverse marine molluscs of the Gulf of Mannar, besides appreciating the need for their conservation for future generations.
