Produced with the Environment Agency, this AIDGAP identification guide covers the 31 different species of freshwater bivalves known in Great Britain and Ireland.

Identification is aided by easy-to-follow illustrations and comparative tables that emphasise key features.

Detailed individual species accounts follow. These include distribution maps, habitat requirements, conservation status and notes on how the species may be separated from similar species. To help with bivalve identification, the guide contains numerous colour illustrations of all species.

Note that this is a ringbound A4 size guide.

AIDGAP produces simple and clearly written identification keys, aimed at non-specialist users from age 16+. The FSC is one of the UK's leading publishers of identification guides, ranging from easy to use fold-out charts through intermediate level AIDGAP guides, to specialist books such as the Synopses of the British Fauna and RES Handbooks.
