Abstract

The book with two sections represents the current trend of research in basic and applied malacology. In the section ""Organismal Malacology"", high-impact articles were contributed in the frontier areas of taxonomy, ecology and aquaculture of molluscs. Importance of mussel in water quality monitoring was highlighted. Biology and conservation of keystone molluscs were discussed from organismal point of view. ""Cellular and Molecular Biology"" section contains informative chapters on toxin-induced differential gene expression, spatiotemporal neural activity in olfactory processing in slug and immunity of hydrothermal vent molluscs. Biochemistry of cellulose degradation, lipid profile and C-reactive protein were elucidated in detail in separate chapters. This book represents a rich source of malacological information for the scientists, teachers and students.

Abstract

This book is divided into four sections. The first section ""Introduction"" offers information on mollusc generalities. In addition, these organisms are important in areas of commercial significance such as aquaculture and fishing. Similarly, it was pointed out in the use of molluscs have uses in pollution studies and environmental processes among others. The second section ""Social Aspects of Fisheries"" considers aspects of molluscs gathering in tropical regions. The third section ""Ecology"" presents the results of long-term research concerning the study of variability of the size/mass relationships in the mollusc Rapana venosa from the northwestern part of the Black Sea and near the eastern coast of Crimea (Sudak Gulf). The fourth section ""Immune System"" sheds light on the elements of the molluscan immune system and survival differences against Vibrio vulnificus and Vibrio parahaemolyticus. This book can be consulted by students, professors, and researchers in biological sciences and related areas.
