Mollusc World

Mollusc World is the full colour magazine of the Conchological Society. It deals with all aspects of Molluscs from archaeology to life in the sea, field collecting at home and abroad and even eating molluscs. It includes articles, field meeting reports, research news, results from the mapping schemes and identification keys. All contributions in any form are welcomed. The first issue was published in March 2003 and replaced the Newsletter; there are normally three issues a year. Full members of the Society receive the printed version of Mollusc World free of charge.

Issues available online to view or download as a PDF now!

Some early preceding Newsletters are available HERE.
