320pp. ISS N 0022-0019

This second Special Publication of the Journal of
Conchology comprises a proceedings volume of papers presented at the
Molluscan Conservation Conference held at the National Museum of
Wale s, Cardiff, U.K. - November 1996. Several malacological
conferences in the last few years have included symposia on the
conservation of Mollusca. This conference was the first to be
dedicated entirel y to this subject

This 320 page volume comprises 33 papers and 7 extended abstracts of
poster presentations. The paperscover seven main topic areas:
International Perspectives, Approaches to Monitoring and Conserving
Biodiversity, Molluscan Conservation and the European Union Habitats
& Species Directive, Societies and Surveys, Single Species
Conservation, Freshwater Mollusc Conservation, and Conservation of
the Marine Fauna .Although all of the papers presented were directed
towards conservation of molluscs, particularly within Europe, an
international perspective is covered by papers on conservation in
East Africa, South Africa and North America. Molluscan Conservation:
A strategy for the 21st Century will be an important reference work
for anyone working on conservation of the molluscan fauna.
