IMPROVING THE CONSERVATION OF A CRYPTIC ENDANGERED FRESHWATER MUSSEL (PARVASPINA COLLINA) THROUGH THE USE OF ENVIRONMENTAL DNA AND SPECIES DISTRIBUTION MODELING
TLDR
Overall, this is a robust technique for identifying species presence but the transport distance of DNA should be determined and inhibitors should be identified and removed before full application of this technique.
Phylogeny of the critically endangered North American spinymussels (Unionidae: Elliptio and Pleurobema)
TLDR
The sequenced two mtDNA gene fragments and a fragment of the nuclear ITS-1 locus from >70 spinymussel specimens suggest a need to revise the taxonomy of this highly imperiled mussel group.
Single or multiple spawning? Comparison of breeding strategies of freshwater Unionidae mussels under stochastic environmental conditions
TLDR
In “good” and moderately “bad” conditions the double brood strategy performed better than the other multiple brood strategies, but as infestation conditions deteriorated, a greater number of spawning events ensured a slower population decline and longer persistence.
Reproductive ecology of the threatened and endemic freshwater mussel Lampsilis bracteata
DNA Barcoding Permits Identification of Potential Fish Hosts of Unionid Freshwater Mussels
TLDR
The findings here will be instrumental in the future conservation of these species, through the translocation to correct habitat and developing successful propagation programs, suggesting that host fish availability may not be an important factor contributing to observed population declines.
