"Bivalve Seashells of Western South America" is the third volume in the trilogy covering the Pacific Ocean's bivalve mollusks found along the coastline of the Americas. Like the two earlier volumes, this book gives us complete descriptions of these mollusks along with high-quality photographs of the specimen shells and their structure. I am delighted to add this book to my inventory. Sadly, the first volume of this set, "Bivalves of Western North America," is now out of print. From time to time, I can find used copies for sale, and if you would like to have one, please send me an email. I'll do my best to get one for you. My email is [email protected] copies of "Bivalves of Tropical West America" are in stock, and they are available at a new lower price.
