      Mollusks: Shelled Masters of the Marine Realm

      A new exhibition opened February 2012 at Harvard Museum of Natural History, explores mollusks'; amazing diversity and feature recent discoveries about their evolutionary history. Mollusks are amazingly varied in both size and anatomical structure, as well as in their behaviors and habitats. First appearing in the fossil record in the Cambrian period more than 500 million years ago, mollusks include the brainy cephalopods such as octopus and squid; the abundant gastropods, creatures that produce a single shell, such as snails; as well as the numerous bivalves, such as oysters, clams and mussels, that are deliciously edible to humans, and often prized for their shells. The exhibition also includes some of the glass models of marine invertebrates made by Leopold and Rudolph Blaschka before they made Harvard's world famous Glass Flowers.
