Distribution of unionid freshwater mussels depends on the distribution of host fishes on a regional scale

  title={Distribution of unionid freshwater mussels depends on the distribution of host fishes on a regional scale},
  author={Astrid Nadine Schwalb and Todd James Morris and Nicholas E. Mandrak and Karl Cottenie},
Aim The successful conservation of endangered mussel communities requires, in part, a thorough understanding of the processes that shape their distribution. Therefore, we tested the prediction that (1) the distribution of host fishes explains a significant amount of variation in mussel community composition. In addition, because mussel distribution also depends on spatial processes and environmental variables, we predicted that (2) the distribution and community composition of mussels in… CONTINUE READING
