Another distinction, leading to important results in classification, is that which is derived from the nature of the element breathed by the Mollusc. And although this consideration belongs more especially to the study of the animal itself, yet the habits of the animal materially influence the.

The term "conchology" is also used for the study of molluscs; however, it is usually applied to those that study the shell only. Molluscs, in general, are soft-bodied animals that usually produce an external skeleton (called an "exoskeleton") we call a Shell, which is composed of a limey material: calcium carbonate (CaCO3) The shell serves both.

The general perception is that conchology is the study of the shell and is mostly the realm of amateurs, while malacology is the study of the organism (including the shell) done by scientists.

However, some people, like Lovell Reeve in the nineteenth century, make the case that there should be no distinction between the two terms, since the Brand: Texas A&M University Press. In the introduction to his book he wrote: "the long descriptions and details of the generation and properties of shells, given by most writers of Conchology, are wholly omitted here; and the utmost care has been taken that each figure, by being an extract and faithful transcript from nature, shall be sufficiently explanatory of the subject.

Conchology is the study of shells, viewed and described as to what they are either in themselves, or in relation to the soft, inarticulate animals which produce them, and of which they form a part. These animals are called Mollusca, and perhaps the best general description of them will be found in De Blainville's "Manuel de Malacologie et de.American Conchology, or, Descriptions of the Shells of North America (s), by Thomas Say (page images and PDF files at ) A Monograph of the Freshwater Univalve Mollusca of the United States: Including Notices of Species in Other Parts of North America (s), by Samuel Stehman Haldeman (page images and PDFs at ).[6] BROWN, T.
