A new snail blog on the block

Our friend and fellow malacologist Rob Dillon, with whom I co-authored a paper last year on the malacological work of Charles Darwin, has just started a blog. Rob specializes in the freshwater gastropods of North America and his blog is called exactly that: Freshwater Gastropods of North America.

For years, Rob has been sending out at irregular intervals e-mail posts on various subjects related to freshwater snails. His topics have ranged from arcane taxonomic problems to urgent conservation issues. Luckily, he's made his blog retroactive so that his posts dating back to 1998 are now all there.

If you have any interest in freshwater gastropods, Rob's blog should be on your reading list.
