Mussels represent an important food source in many parts of the world, including Europe, South America and the Far East, and they have considerable potential as a protein source for many developing countries. In addition, mussels are widely used in pollution studies, and in fundamental ecological and physiological investigations. This book, first published in 1976, is a critical review of information on this group of animals, and sets out the material with suggestions for the future direction of research. The subjects covered include the ecology, physiology, biochemistry, genetics and the culture of mussels. It is an important volume, not only for researchers working with marine molluscs, and with mussels in particular, but also for those in the wider fields of marine ecology, comparative physiology and aquaculture.

Reviews for Marine Mussels: Their Ecology and Physiology

... the contributors to Cities and Citizenship all share a belief that cities are once again acquiring a new significance in determining the rights of the citizen. --TLS, October 15, 1999 Cities and Citizenship is a welcome contribution to the literature on citizenship and politics in the context of globalization ... this is a wonderful book. The contributions to the collection provide important insights and examples ... [and makes] important contributions ... to our understanding of new spaces and forms of citizenship.
