Pelagic Snails - a classic book

August 9, 2007
From: Bill Rudman

One invaluable book in my library is Pelagic Snails. The biology of holoplanktonic gastropod mollusks by Carol Lalli & Ronald Gilmer.

I have not previously included it in the Book Reviews because I had been told it had been out of print for years. Carol Lalli let me know that it was still available from Stanford University Press so I have included a review and a link to the relevant website.
