There are around 85,000 recognized extant species of mollusks. Mollusca is the largest marine phylum, comprising about 23% of all the named marine organisms. Numerous molluscs also live in freshwater and terrestrial habitats. Molluscs are highly diverse, not only in size and in anatomical structure, but also in behaviour and in habitat. For millennia molluscs have been a source of food for humans, as well as important luxury goods, notably pearls, mother of pearl, Tyrian purple dye, sea silk, and chemical compounds. Their shells have also been used as a form of currency in some pre-industrial societies. Some of the the mollusks species are becoming threatened and endangered. Together let us document and conserve the mollusks of the world for the benefit of the future generations. Reference: Wikipedia
