    The eggs hatch into glochidia larvae that develop within the female's shell. These included increasing relative buoyancy in soft sediments by developing spines on the shell, gaining the ability to swim, and in a few cases, adopting predatory habits. Archaeology employs malacology to understand the evolution of the climatethe biota of the area, and the usage of the site. The ventricle is muscular and pumps hemolymph into the aortaand then to the rest of the body. In life the ligament opens the shell like a bent eraser in a door hingeand the adductor muscle or muscles close the shell like a person pulling the door closed by the handle. This studydemonstrates a comprehensive diagnosticapproach incorporating multiple modalities toassess the health status of mussel populations,while minimizing the sample size required toobtain valuable information.

    The organs are usually mechanoreceptors or chemoreceptorsin some cases located on short tentacles. The position of the muscles is often clearly visible on the inside of empty valves as circular or oval muscle scars. Others, such as cockles and clams on soft shores and mussels and oysters on rocky coasts, can occur in densities high enough that they dominate entire habitats and assume important roles in nutrient cycles. The shell morphology and hinge structure are used in classification. Macroscopic evidence of bruising from human bite marks may be inconclusive and routine histochemical methods of showing extravasated erythrocytes can be unreliable.

    School of Medical This is visible on the inside of the valve as an indentation on the pallial line which is known as the pallial sinus. EGYPT by. The gills hang down into the mantle cavitythe wall of which provides a secondary respiratory surface being well supplied with capillaries.
