Description:Molluscs are one of the most diverse groups of invertebrate animals - both in form and habitat. They have figured prominently in paleobiological and biological studies, and have served as study organisms in numerous evolutionary, biomechanical, ecological, physiological, and behavioral studies. It is our intent to provide an informal and rapid response forum for discussions of molluscan evolution, paleontology, taxonomy and natural history, and provide an interface between palaeontological and neonotological molluscan workers. We will also post notices of meetings, symposia, literature, software and other electronic happenings that may be of interest to the malacological community. This listserve is managed by Unitas Malacologica, the international society for the study of molluscs.
