Another review study is the one submitted by Paez-Osuna & Osuna-Martinez (2011), who summarized the information published between 1998 and 2010, on the use of bivalve mollusks in monitoring studies of marine environments in Mexico, among which species of the Mytilidae, Veneridae, Cyrenidae, Mactridae, and Ostreidae
families are found.

Previous studies on the two most complex gill systems, the heterorhabdic filibranch (in Pectinidae, i.e., scallops) and pseudolamellibranch (in Ostreidae
, i.e., oysters) have shown that gills make their first appearance in the pediveliger larval stage, and that their structural and functional complexity increase until achieving the definitive form in the juveniles (Waller, 1981; Kingzett, 1993; Beninger et al., 1994; Chaparro et al., 2001; Veniot et al., 2003; Cannuel and Beninger, 2006).

True oysters, which include most of the edible species, have been given the family name Ostreidae
; pearl oysters, which produce the highly valued gems, are in a family called Pteriidae.
A complete heirarchical schema for the American oyster distributed along the east coast of the United States is: Phylum: Mollusca Class: Bivalvia Order: Pteriodea Family: Ostreidae
