Sea Shell of India - An Illustrated Guide to Common Gastropods
The Book of Indian Sea Shells, first published by Dr. Deepak Apte in 1998 and widely used as a field guide for many years, is outdated from the taxonomic point of view. This book covers 488 species of gastropods in 29 colour plates, with comprehensive synonyms. It aims to assist students and researchers in field identification. The book also contains 20 live shell plates, allowing the reader to appreciate the beauty of the live animals that reside inside the shells.
