Part of the Te Papa Te Taiao Nature Series, this accessible introduction to a range of the aquatic and terrestrial shell-bearing molluscs encountered in Aotearoa New Zealand is written by two experts from our national museum, Te Papa.

It features over 160 species, from chitons and mussels to snails and limpets and also offers insights into the museum’s fieldwork and collections. The book is charmingly illustrated with digital reproductions from photographs of Te Papa’s vast collection of specimens.

Each book in this lightweight, hardback series – designed by award-winning designer Tim Denee – has a crisp look and feel, ideal for pocketing for tramps, or for using at home.
