An Entity of Type : yago:WikicatMolluscs, within Data Space : dbpedia.org associated with source document(s)

The mollusc (or mollusk) shell is typically a calcareous exoskeleton which encloses, supports and protects the soft parts of an animal in the phylum Mollusca, which includes snails, clams, tusk shells, and several other classes. Not all shelled molluscs live in the sea; many live on the land and in freshwater. Malacology, the scientific study of molluscs as living organisms, has a branch devoted to the study of shells, and this is called conchology—although these terms used to be, and to a minor extent still are, used interchangeably, even by scientists (this is more common in Europe).

  • Раковина моллюсков — наружное скелетное образование, покрывающее тело большинства моллюсков и выполняющее защитную и опорную функции.
  • Het slakkenhuis is een schelp die onderdeel is van het lichaam van een slak. Het is een uitwendig of exoskelet dat niet alleen dient voor de aanhechting van spieren maar ook bescherming biedt tegen predatoren, en mechanische schade. Bij landslakkensoorten en bepaalde zeeslakkensoorten die vooral boven de waterlijn leven levert de schelp de nodige bescherming tegen de zon en uitdroging.
  • Une coquille est le squelette externe d'un mollusque. La majorité des mollusques à coquille se trouve dans la classe des gastéropodes comme les escargots, et dans celle des bivalves comme les huîtres. Trois autres classes de mollusques sécrètent systématiquement une coquille : les scaphopodes (dentales), les polyplacophores (chitons) et les monoplacophores. C'est aussi le cas pour la quasi-totalité des céphalopodes, même si elle est parfois réduite et recouverte par le manteau (« os » des seiches ou « plume » des calmars).
