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, were studied from 2004–2008 in a 32-km reach of the Clinch River, TN. 2. Observed maximum age and length of E. brevidens was 28 yr and 71.5mm for males and 15 yr and 56.6mm for females; of E. capsaeformis, 12 yr and 54.6mm for males and 9 yr and 48.6mm for females; and of L. fasciola, 45 yr and 91.3mm… CONTINUE READING
