Abstract Nine sites in the Neosho River (Kansas) were surveyed for unionid mussels during summer 1994 to compare the effectiveness of quadrat sampling vs. timed snorkel searches for evaluating relative abundance, species richness and diversity, size distribution and evidence of recruitment. At each site, timed snorkel searches were conducted in a 100-m stretch, 10-m wide, of wadable habitat. Mussels were returned to their original location following identification and sizing. Next, 40 1 m2… Expand
