Larval and post-larval development of the giant clams Tridacna maxima and Tridacna squamosa (Bivalvia, Tridacnidae
In addition to benefitting the economy, giant clams (subfamily Tridacnidae
) make a useful model for studying host-symbiont interactions.
Phylogenetic relationships among giant clam species (Mollusca: Tridacnidae
) determined by protein electrophoresis.
The great number of fish remains that have been recovered from archaeological sites, as well as long lived clams species such as the tropical Tridacnidae
, may yield a wealth of information in the future that can refine local chronologies.
Allozyme electrophoretic methods for analysing genetic variation in giant clams (Tridacnidae
Giant clams (Cardiidae: Tridacnidae
) are highly emblematic, heavily targeted coral reef species throughout their Indo-Pacific distribution, from East Africa and the Red Sea to the central Pacific Ocean (bin Othman et al.
Observations on the symbiosis with zooxanthellae among the tridacnidae

Included are the reef-building scleractinian corals, many alcyonarians, all of the about eight species of giant clams of the family Tridacnidae
, and a few other bivalves (Maruyama et al., 1998).
