The first of 11 proposed volumes on the Australian Mollusca, this volume covers the non-marine Mollusca. It deals with the vast array (over 1000 species) of native and introduced snails, slugs, bivalves and limpets found in terrestrial, freshwater and marginal marine habitats.

". . . the book provides a unique and necessary information source for anyone dealing with Australian molluscs." -- FE Wells, Journal of the Malacological Society of Australia
