Oliva Shells
The Genus Oliva and the Species Problem
by B. Tursch & D. Greifeneder

ISBN 86070-17-9, published in 2001 by L'Informatore Piceno, Ancona, Italy, hardcover with printed dust jacket, 569 pages and 48 full color photo plates showing variations within the species, about 8 by 11.75 inches or 20 by 29.5 cm., illustrated throughout with black and white photographs, drawings and includes many charts and other maps and tables

I can give this book no better review to say that it is the exact opposite of the shoddy work done by Petuch & Sargent in their work on this genus in their "Atlas of the Living Olive Shells of the World". This book by Tursh and Greifeneder is a careful study of more than 30,000 specimens of shells in the genus. Instead of my review I am going to provide a link to the thorough review by Dr. Harry Lee in the Jacksonville Shell-O-Gram which first appeared in the "American Conchologist" publication.  http://www.jaxshells.org/pdfs/tursch.pdf  (If the link does not work copy it into your browser).
