Promise for assessment of biodiversity at regional scales research in northern new south wales (nsw) has demonstrated that a fully representative snapshot of mollusc diversity (prosobranch gastropods and bivalves) can readily be obtained by sampling 3 sites within an area using a standardised protocol (smith 2008. Some recent studies, however, have applied these benthic indices to only mollusk species due to the ease of identifying only one taxonomic group to the species we conclude that mollusk-only benthic index assessments of molluscan death assemblages have the potential to be a powerful tool for guiding management.
