This Zoo Lab web page features information regarding mollusc form and function. Links are provided to images of snail radula, Veliger larvae, Glochidium larva, squid dissection mount, male squid dissection, freshwater clam dissection mount, freshwater mussel dissection, and a clam model. Each image is labeled and accompanied by a caption describing the function of major structures. The page was developed as a student study guide for practical exams and also provides an outline of the material presented in the lecture portion of the course. It can also provide a &quot;virtual laboratory&quot; experience for those who do not have access to these materials as well as a source of basic zoological information.
