North America's freshwater mussels of the family Unionidae
are extremely diverse, with approximately 300 species found throughout its waters (Williams et al.
Descriptions of some of the glochidia of the Unionidae
The superfamily Unionoidea is divided into two families, Unionidae
It was in Alabama where I was first introduced to the biology of freshwater mussels in the family Unionidae
(translates into pearl animals).
Influence of aluminum and protons on the electrolyte homeostasis in the Unionidae
Anodontaanatina and Uniopictorum.
Freshwater mussels from Upper Triassic Newark Supergroup of Atlantic coast rift-basin lakes were interpreted to belong to Mulleriidae (was Mycetopodidae; Mycetopoda), Hyriidae (Diplodon), and Unionidae
(Anoplophora, Unio) by Pilsbry (4,5).
This manuscript summarizes the findings of a survey for freshwater mussels of the family Unionidae
(hereafter, simply referred to as ''mussels") in selected streams of the Sabine National Forest (SNF) adjacent to Toledo Bend Reservoir in East Texas (Figure 1).
Remarks on the Unionidae
of Nebraska Territory, etc.
Large molluscs (Dreissena, Unionidae
, and Viviparus) were fixed separately and were not included in the total figures of macrozoobenthos abundance and biomass due to their much bigger individual weight compared with all other animals.
Mackie, Impact of the Zebra Mussel, Dreissena polymorpha, on Populations of Unionidae
(Bivalvia) in Lake St.
Primary consumers were pooled to order, producing nine general taxonomic/habitat classes: Unionidae
, Amphipoda, Trichoptera, tadpoles, Ephemeroptera, shallow zooplankton (0-3 m), deep zooplankton (10-12 m), Chironomidae (profundal), and miscellaneous littoral (littoral primary consumers collected from [less than]3 lakes).
is the minimum estimate for this split and it is possible that the divergence of the M and F lineages observed in Pyganodon and Fusconaia predate the divergence of the Unionidae
from other freshwater mussel families (e.
