A multilocus deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA)-barcoding approach to identify newly transformed juvenile mussels collected from naturally infested fishes in a federally protected waterway that is home to a diverse mussel community, the St Croix River, concludes that the barcoding gap between average intra- and interspecific genetic distances is wider for ND1 than for COI, but both loci perform well for species identification in character-based phylogenetic analyses.
Variation in Freshwater Mussel Shell Sculpture and Shape Along a River Gradient
Results support suggestions that mussels with sculptured or obese shells may have an anchoring advantage in areas of high discharge while smooth-shelled or slim forms may reburrow more readily after dislodgement in hydraulically flashy environments.
EVALUATION OF RELOCATION OF UNIONID MUSSELS TO IN SITU REFUGIA
The relatively high survival of mussels during this study demonstrates the importance of proper handling and transport protocols when relocating mussels and the selection of suitable relocation habitat with stable substratum.
Early Life-history and Conservation Status of Venustaconcha Ellipsiformis (Bivalvia, Unionidae) in Minnesota
ABSTRACT The ellipse, Venustaconcha ellipsiformis (Bivalvia: Unionidae), was first recorded in Minnesota from the Straight River in 1987, but we knew little of its distribution in the state, brooding…

Host attraction, brooding phenology, and host specialization on freshwater drum by 4 freshwater mussel species
Data from laboratory trials and recovery and identification of juvenile mussels from naturally infected fish support the long-held assumption that freshwater drum (Aplodinotus grunniens) probably is the exclusive host for these species and is a suitable host for Potamilus ohiensis and Truncilla donaciformis.

Adaptive cluster sampling was used to estimate population size and habitat associations of two federally endangered species, Higgins eye and winged mapleleaf, in the St Croix River, confirming that larger-scale hydraulic parameters might be better predictors of prime mussel habitat than fine-scaled microhabitat factors.

Early Life History and Distribution of Pistolgrip (Tritogonia verrucosa (Rafinesque, 1820)) in Minnesota and Wisconsin
Pistolgrip conservation efforts include sustainable flathead catfish management and habitat improvement to support expansion of remaining pistolgrip populations, according to the apparent close association between pistolsgrip and flatheadCatfish.
