The high socio-economic value of freshwater species is clearly demonstrated: 46% of fish and 27% of plants utilised in northern Africa provide direct socio-economic benefits.

Unfortunately, the freshwater species making up wetland ecosystems are also being rapidly lost through human actions with 25% of the utilised species already at risk of   CONTENTS Introduction 94 Overview of freshwater molluscan diversity in Africa 96 Molluscan diversity in river basins 97 Molluscan diversity in ancient lakes Molluscan diversity in artesian basins Molluscan diversity in saline lagoons, saltmarshes and mangroves Molluscan diversity in crater lakes Molluscan diversity in montane lakes BOOK OF THE MONTH.

It not only summarizes the knowledge of spongillofauna of the African continent but provides new as well as historical illustrations and distribution maps for all the species Book Description. Molluscs comprise the second largest phylum of animals (after arthropods), occurring in virtually all habitats.

Some are commercially important, a few are pests and some carry diseases, while many non-marine molluscs are threatened by human impacts which have resulted in more extinctions than all tetrapod vertebrates ://.
