Hackenheim: ConchBooks, 2012. Quarto, laminated boards, colour and black and white photographs.
The first comprehensive book on Antarctic Mollusca in a long time. The molluscan diversity in Antarctic waters is particularly large. Bivalvia are represented by 24 different families, comprising 40 genera and over 87 species. The Gastropoda are represented with 49 families, divided over 130 genera with 336 known species. All these species are figured in this book. Large quantities of Mollusca from different Polarstern Expeditions were studied during the compilation of the book. Where possible, figures of type specimens are shown. In many cases this type material has never been figured before.
