Molecular phylogenetic analysis supports a Gondwanan origin of the Hyriidae (Mollusca: Bivalvia: Unionida) and the paraphyly of Australasian taxa.
The freshwater mussel family Hyriidae (Mollusca: Bivalvia: Unionida) has a disjunct trans-Pacific distribution in Australasia and South America. Previous phylogenetic analyses have estimated theExpand
Bivalves in a bottleneck: taxonomy, phylogeography and conservation of freshwater mussels (Bivalvia: Unionoida) in Australasia
The conservation biology of Australasian freshwater mussels is hindered by lack of a taxonomic framework that employs molecular data as a complement to shell characters, larval forms and internalExpand
A field guide to freshwater fishes, crayfishes & mussels of South-Western Australia
This field guide summarises all that is currently known about the iconic, yet often unnoticed species of fish, crayfish and mussels inhabiting the fresh waters of south-western Australia. It offersExpand
Range decline and conservation status of Westralunio carteri Iredale, 1934 (Bivalvia : Hyriidae) from south-western Australia
Abstract. Westralunio carteri is the only species of freshwater mussel found in south-western Australia and, owing to a lack of comprehensive information on its ecology, its conservation status hasExpand
Benefit of feeding dietary calcium and nonphytate phosphorus levels above National Research Council recommendations to tom turkeys in the growing-finishing phases.
This experiment evaluated the effects of feeding various dietary Ca and nonphytate P (nPP) levels to Large White male turkeys from 3 to 17 wk of age. After consuming a common prestarter diet, poultsExpand
Aquatic macrofauna of Ellen Brook and the Brockman River: fresh water refuges in a salinised catchment
The South West Coast Drainage Division houses a highly endemic assemblage of aquatic fauna. For example, the region’s freshwater fish (80% endemic) and crayfish (100% endemic) endemicity isExpand
Research priorities for freshwater mussel conservation assessment
Freshwater mussels are declining globally, and effective conservation requires prioritizing research and actions to identify and mitigate threats impacting mussel species. Conservation prioritiesExpand
Glochidia ecology in wild fish populations and laboratory determination of competent host fishes for an endemic freshwater mussel of south-western Australia
Abstract. Glochidia (parasitic larvae) of freshwater mussels generally require a fish as a host. Westralunio carteri Iredale, 1934 (Bivalvia : Hyriidae), the only freshwater mussel found inExpand
Age and Growth in the Australian Freshwater Mussel, Westralunio carteri, with an Evaluation of the Fluorochrome Calcein for Validating the Assumption of Annulus Formation
Abstract: Growth and longevity of freshwater mussels (Unionida) are important for defining life-history strategies and assessing vulnerability to human impacts. We used mark—recapture and analysis ofExpand
Distribution of Westralunio carteri Iredale 1934 (Bivalvia: Unionoida: Hyriidae) on the south coast of southwestern Australia, including new records of the species
Westralunio carteri Iredale 1934 is the only hyriid in southwestern Australia. The species was listed as ‘Vulnerable’ by the IUCN, due to population decline from dryland salinity, although theExpand
