    Abstract

    The molluscs belong to the large and diverse phylum Mollusca, which includes a variety of familiar animals well-known as decorative shells or as seafood. These range from tiny snails, clams, and abalone to larger organisms such as squid, cuttlefish and the octopus. These molluscs occupy a variety of habitats ranging from mountain forests, freshwater to more than 10 km depth in the sea. They range in size from less than 1 mm to more than 15 m (for example the giant squid) and their population density may exceed 40,000/m2 in some areas. In the tropical marine environment, molluscs occupy every trophic level, from primary producers to top carnivores.
