the journal of the Freshwater Mollusk Conservation Society
We are very pleased to announce that the first new number of WALKERANA, the journal of the Freshwater Mollusk Conservation Society (FMCS), is now available. Walkerana is an electronic-only journal. To access, go to http://molluskconservation.org<http://molluskconservation.org/> select 'Walkerana' > 'Current Issues Table of Contents.' Current FMCS members can download the entire number or individual papers. Non-members can view the Abstracts. The journal will be published biannually.
WALKERANA was developed by Dr. John B. Burch at the University of Michigan, and has long been known for its key works regarding freshwater mollusks and malacology in general. The Society extends sincere thanks and appreciation to the hard work and dedication of the individuals that made this long-awaited FMCS vision a reality.
The scope of WALKERANA is simple. Articles including all aspects of the biology of freshwater mollusks are welcome: ecology, physiology, toxicology, reproduction, etc. Survey results are acceptable if they have heuristic value and are used to compare previous studies and results. Please see the FMCS website for instructions for authors on submissions. Abstracts are available for viewing by non-FMCS members, but you will only have access to the journal if you are a member.
