Fields of malacological research include taxonomy ecology , and evolution . Applied malacology studies medical, veterinary, and agricultural applications, for example mollusks as mediators of such diseases as schistosomiasis Archaeology employs malacology to understand the evolution of the climate , the biota of the area, and the usage of the site. In 1794, the first compilation of mollusks was published. In 1868, the German Malacozoological Company was founded.

What is Invertebrate Zoology?
Invertebrate zoology is the study of the vast majority of diversity contained within the 34 extant phyla (major categories) of animal life the Metazoa. Within the broad category of invertebrate zoology, malacology is devoted to the study of mollusks, the second largest phylum of animals in terms of described species. It has historically been the main focus of invertebrate studies at FLMNH. About 100,000 species of mollusks are known, and FLMNH holds over 30,000 species among over 400,000 lots of specimens. Over 370,000 lots are now databased and accessible online. The collection is among the five largest in the US, and one of the most rapidly growing. It is the second largest mollusk collection in the world in online accessibility. Invertebrate of the month Collections Research People Webmaster

Collection Size: Approximately 6,000,000 specimens in over 248,000 lots (9th largest mollusk collection in the U.S.). Collection History: The first conchological acquisition of the Bishop Museum was the Andrew Garrett collection, purchased in 1894. The subsequent history of the collection is largely a history of numerous expeditions and field trips in the Pacific, and of the acquisition of more than 30 major private collections, containing predominantly Pacific material. Most notable in the marine collection is the acquisition between 1948 and 1963 of the Thaanum-Langford collection, consisting of approximately 160,000 specimens from all over the Pacific.

10. Invertebrate Zoology - Molluscs - Snails, Clams, Sea-slugs And Relatives
The Australian Museum Research Library collections held in the malacology Section are very comprehensive and include many early works.
These animals belong to the phylum Mollusca. Molluscs include chitons, clams, mussels, snails, nudibranchs (sea-slugs), tusk shells, octopus and squid. The study of molluscs is called malacology. Characteristics of molluscs
  • Unsegmented soft body Most have internal or external shell Have a mantle (fold in the body wall that lines the shell) Muscular foot and/or tentacles
Research The research effort of the section is mainly concentrated on the marine and freshwater snails and sea-slugs. Much of the work is taxonomic, with an emphasis on world-wide, or at least Indo-West Pacific, revisions of groups, but studies on aspects of the biology, ecology and evolution of particular species are also taking place.

Journal of Medical and Applied Malacology
The International Society for Medical and Applied Malacology is devoted specifically to the concerns of applied malacology, i.e., to medical, veterinary and agricultural malacology. The Society is for scientists that work with mollusks as mediators of parasitic diseases of humans and domestic and other animals, and as pests to agriculture, materials, etc. Medical aspects include such diseases as schistosomiasis, paragonimiasis, fascioliasis, fasciolopsiasis, clonorchiasis and eosinophilic meningoencephalitis. The Society's journal, the Journal of Medical and Applied Malacology, includes articles dealing with, e.g., molluscan ecology, distribution, taxonomy, biochemistry, physiology, functional morphology, control, eradication and host-parasite relationships. Also included, beginning with Vol. 2, is an annual literature coverage of pertinent articles on medical and applied malacology published in other journals. In addition to publishing the Journal of Medical and Applied Malacology, the Society sponsors congresses on medical and applied malacology at periodic intervals. The first congress was held in Monterrey, Mexico, in 1987. The second congress was held in Seoul, Korea, in 1990. The third congress was held in Camden, Australia, in 1993. The fourth congress will be held in Santiago, Chile, in 1996.
Directions to Authors
The Journal for Medical and Applied Malacology will publish the results of original work, of either descriptive or experimental nature, devoted primarily or exclusively to the study of mollusks of medical, veterinary and agricultural importance, and their parasites, and will publish reviews of major research in these areas of medical and applied malacology. The articles must not be published elsewhere.

Since the inception of the program in June, 1985, the COA has awarded over $140,290.00 in grants in the field of malacology. Individual grants range between $1,000 and $1,500 per project. The size of total annual funding has grown to $15,868 in 2005. Besides the annual auction income, we now also source from other convention income for grants. Due to the wide fluctuation of our annual convention/auction income, we find it necessary to pay more attention to enlarging our endowment donations as well as direct donations to our annual grant budget. Typically, grants of up to $1,500 each are given to qualified parties undertaking field or laboratory research on recent or fossil mollusks, and other molluscan related projects. Up to 2004, most of the awardees have been citizens or permanent residents of the Americas or students attending graduate schools in the United States. Awards are not made to high school students and rarely are made to undergraduate college students. Elsewhere on this web site, you will see a

    Malacology, the study of mollusks, has been part of the Academy since its founding in 1812. Thomas Say (1787-1834), Isaac Lea (1792-1886), Samuel S. Haldemann (1812-1880), George W. Tryon, Jr. (1838-1888), Henry A. Pilsbry (1862-1957), H. B. Baker (1889-1971), and R. Tucker Abbott are some of the more notable malacologists associated with the Academy. The collection of recent mollusks at The Academy of Natural Sciences of Philadelphia (ANSP) is the oldest in the country, and the second largest catalogued one in the world. It currently has more than 430,000 catalogued lots containing about 12 million specimens, including 30,000-35,000 lots preserved in ethanol. Type specimens of more than 400 authors are represented in more than 12,000 type lots. ANSP has specimens from all over the world. Greatest strengths are in shallow-water marine mollusks from the tropical Indo-Pacific and the Western Atlantic and worldwide freshwater and land mollusks. The Malacology Department maintains its own research website. This site hosts a number of Malacology collection and research databases.

Mollusk collections at the American Museum of Natural History are the basis of an active field and laboratory research program, headed by the curator in charge, Dr. Paula M. Mikkelsen. Dr. Mikkelsen's current research focuses on the systematics and diversity of marine bivalves, especially those of the tropical western Atlantic, supported by private funding and a National Science Foundation PEET grant. An Histology Laboratory (also available for use by trained affiliated researchers) provides an essential venue for ellucidating anatomical characters in shelled mollusks whose soft morphology is often poorly known. Affiliated personnel are pursuing similar studies of opisthobranchs, with special faunal emphases on the northeastern United States and Caribbean.
The AMNH mollusk collections currently comprise over 317,000 catalogued lots, including several thousand type specimens and a growing alcohol-preserved collection as a result of active field projects. Particular strengths of the collections are in some important historical collections, including those of John C. Jay, and Gordon Nowell-Usticke, and expedition collections such as the AMNH Congo Expedition (1909-1915) and marine abyssal material collected by the research vessel "Vema" (1955-1962). Our collections represent at least 80% of the known species for the families Cypraeidae, Conidae, Epitoniidae, Harpidae, Pleurotomariidae, Strombidae, and Xenophoridae. The collection is particularly rich in shell specimens from tropical oceans, with a more recent emphasis on the Caribbean. The acquisition of a Giant Squid (

    Initiation Date: October 08, 2001) This section of "Man and Mollusc" has been developed as a resource for the serious shell collectors, malacologists and conchologists. This is a separate section from the site's General Interest and Internet Resource pages. In order for you to get the most of your visit to this section, it is advisable that you have at least a minimal understanding of malacology and its terminology. Of course, all are welcome but amateur viewers BEWARE! " Serious scientific knowledge and terminology onboard!" My hopes and intentions for this zone is that information gained from such a joint sharing of top quality information will help in answering some of the many molluscan questions and problems faced by scientists and shell collectors today. I also hope that it will encourage students to seek out a career in malacology and that shell collectors will get more involved and knowledgeable in their hobby.
