02.10.2007 Mikhail O. Son had publish a monograph Invasive molluscs in fresh and brackish waters of the Northern Black Sea Region (in Russian). In the annotation author says next: This book is the first attempt to summarize all information on molluscan invasion in fresh and brackish waters of the Northern Black Sea Region. Species composition, taxonomy, ecology, and zoogeography of exotic species are discussed. Data on chronology of its expansion is cited. Particular direction of invasion "Black Sea Coastal corridor" (expansion along interrupted line of coastal reservoirs of the Azov-Black Sea Basin) marked in first. It allows exchange of exotic species between lower stretches of larger river basins in the studied region. Causes of distinctions in the invasions of Ponto-Caspian relics are considered. Forecasting of invasion based on analysis of potential vectors of invasion is grounded. Ancylus lacustris brevis Puzanov, 1925 is a junior synonym of Ferrissia fragilis (Tryon, 1863). Book might be interesting for a wide range of specialists. This work was partly supported by the European Commission 6th Framework Program Integrated Project ALARM (contract GOCE-CT-2003-506675).

I can add to this, that you could write to the Mikhail Son on his electronic address to order the book.
