This volume is a very welcome reprint of the first of the two volumes that make up the "Compendium of Bivalves." It has been out of print now for quite a while. The books are the most comprehensive work that has been written covering this class of the mollusks.This volume covers more than 3300 species of worldwide bivlaves. The first printing consisted of a book with additional information on a CD. The new reprint contains the information found on the CD in printed form. The two volume set make up the most comprehensive study of the Bivalves ever done.
