This bilingual French-English book explores the little-known continental (terrestrial and freshwater) molluscs of Martinique. After outlining the island’s natural habitats, it draws on recent collecting expeditions, literature review, and private and public collections to describe the ecology of Martinique’s 86 species in detail through distribution maps, lists of their known locations, and notes on protection status. Illustrated keys also help readers identify specimens to the class, family, genus, or species level, and beautiful color plates show the living animals, their shells, and habitats.
