Population genetics of the freshwater mussel, Amblema plicata (Say 1817) (Bivalvia: Unionidae): Evidence of high dispersal and post-glacial colonization
Over 70% of North American freshwater mussel species (families Unionidae and Margaritiferidae) are listed as threatened or endangered. Knowledge of the genetic structure of target species isExpand

Reduced Survival and Fitness in Native Bivalves in Response to Fouling by the Introduced Zebra Mussel (Dreissena polymorpha) in Western Lake Erie
Fouling by the recently established zebra mussel (Dreissena polymorpha) causes differential effects among bivalve communities. In 3-mo experiments and surveys conducted in western Lake Erie duringExpand

Thermal Tolerances of the Predatory Cladocerans Bythotrephes cederstroemi and Leptodora kindti: Relationship to Seasonal Abundance in Western Lake Erie
Abundances of two predatory cladocerans, recently introduced Bythotrephes cederstroemi (Schoedler) and native Leptodora kindti Focke, in western Lake Erie were negatively correlated in 1987, with theExpand

Population genetics and phylogeography of freshwater mussels in North America, Elliptio dilatata and Actinonaias ligamentina (Bivalvia: Unionidae)
Extrinsic and intrinsic forces combined shape the population structure of every species differently. Freshwater mussels are obligate parasites to a host fish during a juvenile stage (glochidia).Expand

Clearance and Processing of Algal Particles by Zebra Mussels (Dreissena polymorpha)
The exotic zebra mussel, Dreissena polymorpha Pallas, has become a dominant member of nearshore benthic communities in the Laurentian Great Lakes. Suspension-feeding bivalves such as the zebra musselExpand

Changes in genetic structure of North American Bythotrephes populations following invasion from Lake Ladoga, Russia
SUMMARY 1. We used allozyme electrophoresis to compare Bythotrephes longimanus (Crustacea: Onychopoda: Cercopagididae) from recently founded North American populations with those from native EuropeanExpand

Molecular phylogenetics and morphological variation reveal recent speciation in freshwater mussels of the genera Arcidens and Arkansia (Bivalvia: Unionidae)
Intra- and interspecific morphological variation due to both phenotypic plasticity and evolutionary convergence hinder the work of taxonomists and lead to over- and underestimates of speciesExpand

A conceptual model linking demography and population genetics of freshwater mussels
Abstract Population viability analysis (PVA) provides a mechanism for analyzing extinction risk by considering processes, such as random fluctuation in demographic features, loss of geneticExpand

Population genetic structure of three freshwater mussel (Unionidae) species within a small stream system: significant variation at local spatial scales
Summary 1. Unionid mussels are highly threatened, but little is known about genetic structure in populations of these organisms. We used allozyme electrophoresis to examine partitioning of geneticExpand
