A HOLISTIC APPROACH TO TAXONOMIC EVALUATION OF TWO CLOSELY RELATED ENDANGERED FRESHWATER MUSSEL SPECIES, THE OYSTER MUSSEL EPIOBLASMA CAPSAEFORMIS AND TAN RIFFLESHELL EPIOBLASMA FLORENTINA WALKERI
Species in the genus Epioblasma have specialized life history requirements and represent the most endangered genus of freshwater mussels (Unionidae) in the world. A genetic characterization of extantExpand
GENETIC MANAGEMENT GUIDELINES FOR CAPTIVE PROPAGATION OF FRESHWATER MUSSELS (UNIONOIDEA)
Abstract Although the greatest global diversity of freshwater mussels (~300 species) resides in the United States, the superfamily Unionoidea is also the most imperiled taxon of animals in theExpand
Life history and propagation of the endangered dromedary pearlymussel (Dromus dromas) (Bivalvia:Unionidae)
Abstract The reproduction, demography, and propagation of the endangered dromedary pearlymussel (Dromus dromas) (Lea, 1834) were studied in the Clinch and Powell rivers, Tennessee. Viable populationsExpand
Factors Affecting Survival and Growth of Juvenile Freshwater Mussels Cultured in Recirculating Aquaculture Systems
Abstract Seasonal differences in glochidial maturity, substrate, and diet were studied to determine how these factors affect the survival and growth of juvenile freshwater mussels. Comparisons wereExpand

Aspects of the reproduction, age, growth, fish hosts, and culture of juveniles were determined for the endangered fanshell pearlymussel, Cyprogenia stegaria Rafinesque, 1820, in the Clinch River,Expand
A hierarchical Bayesian approach for estimating freshwater mussel growth based on tag-recapture data
Abstract In fisheries stock assessment and management, the von Bertalanffy growth model is commonly used to describe individual growth of many species by fitting age-at-length data. However, it isExpand
Spatial and temporal relationships among watershed mining, water quality, and freshwater mussel status in an eastern USA river.
The Powell River of southwestern Virginia and northeastern Tennessee, USA, drains a watershed with extensive coal surface mining, and it hosts exceptional biological richness, including at-riskExpand
Influence of life-history variation on demographic responses of three freshwater mussel species (Bivalvia: Unionidae) in the Clinch River, USA
1. Variation in age, shell growth, and demographic responses of two endangered mussel species, Epioblasma brevidens and Epioblasma capsaeformis, and a third non-listed species, Lampsilis fasciola,Expand
Homogeneity at nuclear microsatellite loci masks mitochondrial haplotype diversity in the endangered fanshell pearlymussel (Cyprogenia stegaria).
We report on multiple patterns of differentiation and connectivity in the fanshell pearlymussel (Cyprogenia stegaria), based on different markers. Knowledge of genetic variation and geneticExpand
Performance of a Recirculating Aquaculture System Utilizing an Algal Turf Scrubber for Scaled-Up Captive Rearing of Freshwater Mussels (Bivalvia: Unionidae)
Abstract To develop a system supporting rapid growth of juvenile freshwater mussels, a recirculating aquaculture system was designed and built at the Laboratory for Conservation Aquaculture andExpand
