Get the basics on bivalves—soft-bodied animals like mussels, clams, and scallops that live inside two hinged shells. You’ll discover the important roles they play economically, environmentally, and evolutionarily. And you’ll learn the many places these mollusks can be found, both worldwide and in your own back yard!
