Mollusk Diversity

Go digging for clams with Field Museum Curator and zoologist, Dr. Rüdiger Bieler and his international team of scientists as they study the evolution of mollusks—the largest group of animals in the oceans and the second largest animal group in the world! You’ll discover how mapping out the relationships between bivalve mollusks like clams and scallops helps us to understand evolutionary pathways and track the development of genes over time.

6. Heading for Home

Find out what happens after an expedition, when the specimens are sorted, identified, and packed for the trip home. You’ll discover how The Field Museum collaborates with many other institutions to pinpoint the relationships between mollusk species and identify the processes at work in the evolution of organisms and their genes over time.
