Fauna of Alabama, Vol. 1 : Fresh Water and Land Shells (Classic Reprint)


Excerpt from Fauna of Alabama, Vol. 1: Fresh Water and Land Shells There is no State in the Union that affords a more di versified Molluscan Fauna than is found within the limits of Alabama. While exhibiting no marked superiority in the number of species that are classed as Land Shells, and possibly displaying a meager list of aquatic pulmonates, it is remarkably rich in fresh water bivalves (unionidae), and in an operculate class of aquatic univalves, chiefly of the family Melagidae. The list of fispecies here presented is compiled from vari ous sources, chiefly the writings of Isaac Lea, L. L. D., who has writt more on the fresh water shells of North America than all other original writers together. The compilations and writings of Mr. W. G. Binney have ai forded much aid in compiling the pulmonate species. The writings of Thomas Say and other distinguished American Conchologists, have also been consulted.
