Description: The overall goal of the project is to identify how hydrogeomorphology influences native freshwater mussels in the Upper Mississippi River (UMR). The first step in that process is to obtain large-scale systemic data on native mussels in specific reaches of the UMR—the intent of this scope of work. Because of their critically imperiled status, native mussels are a significant resource of concern to the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, the National Park Service, state natural resource agencies, and non-governmental organizations. The lack of information on metrics to predict the distribution, abundance, diversity, and recruitment of native mussels makes it difficult for resource managers to understand what constitutes mussel habitat in large rivers and to evaluate the effects of management actions on this imperiled group.
