Information

Aims, contents and method of the course

This course will introduce the morphology of the shell and anatomy of the Bivalvia. It will then explore the adaptations of the morphology to life history strategies. Among topics we will explore are rock boring, swimming, cementation and commensalism. We will then look at adaptations reflecting feeding strategies including bacterial symbiosis. Finally we will consider adaptive radiations within phylogenetic lineages.
