Molluscan-focused citizen science initiatives have produced, and have the potential to produce, a variety of relevant data related to documenting introduced species, range extensions, rare occurrences, and ecological interactions. Importantly, Citizen Science also creates partnerships between institutions, scientists, and the public. This symposium will explore the products of molluscan-focused citizen science, its potential applications, and the online tools the have facilitated a digital data revolution in crowd-sourced biodiversity documentation.
