Zambezi Basin Wetlands Volume II : Chapter 8 – Review of Freshwater Molluscs




The freshwater molluscs are examined from both biodiversity and biogeographical perspectives. A analysis of the fauna is presented and checklists of the basin are included. In particular, the basin's centre of biodiversity, Lake Malawi, is compared with Lake Tanganyika, and the molluscs of the river basin are discussed in relation to the other major river basins of the continent – the Congo, the Nile and the Niger. Conservation aspects are evaluated and suggestions for future investigations are presented. Also included is a discussion of the distribution and importance of the genera Biomphalaria and Bulinus, intermediate hosts of Schistosoma species, which are important blood flukes of man.
