Abstract

Effective Knowledge and Conservation of Continental Molluscs in Brazil, South America, With Special Emphasis in Land Gastropods: The Current Situation

Of these, only “twelve native terrestrial species” are officially listed in the List and Red Book of Brazilian Fauna Threatened with Extinction, as well as resulting in “Reflections Legislatures, State Red Books and Thematic Maps” parallel generated, all belonging to the subclass Pulmonata and order Stylommatophora, included in the families Bulimulidae (3 species), Megalobulimidae (5 species), Streptaxidae (1 species) and Strophocheilidae (3 species).
