Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Minimum depth from Ref. 106682. Collected for food in some areas. Shell used as raw material to make lime and for shellcraft (Ref. 348). Found in reef areas of lagoons (Ref. 97298); from immediate subtidal to 20 m; attached to rock (Ref. 337). Strongly cemented to rock or coral platforms. At low tide levels and shallow subtidal depths (Ref. 348). Members of the class Bivalvia are mostly gonochoric, some are protandric hermaphrodites. Life cycle: Embryos develop into free-swimming trocophore larvae, succeeded by the bivalve veliger, resembling a miniature clam (Ref. 833).
