BIBLIOGRAPHY

In this page you will find a selected bibliography about land gastropods, organised per area/country of the world. A flag indicates the language in which the book is written. Please note that many of these books may be hard to find and are often pricey.

This list includes texts for the identification and study of terrestrial species that inhabit a specific geographical area. It does not include, instead, sea and freshwater species, generic texts about gastropod biology, snail farming, snail care, children books, etc. At the bottom of the page, however, you will find some external links to less restrictive bibliographies posted on other websites.

This list is updated whenever I find another book suitable to be included. Links to reviews will be included as well when available.

For any comment or if you want to suggest a book not included yet to the list, feel free to use the message form at the bottom of the page. Thanks.
