North America is a global center for native freshwater mussel diversity. Mussels are among the most imperiled fauna on the planet. Over the past three decades, there has been substantial research on mussels, however, there are still substantial information gaps that limit conservation and management efforts. This session presents USGS’s science vision to identify research that is relevant to the USGS mission and meets the needs of resource partners.

Presented by:

David Hu – USGS Ecosystems Mission Area

Nathan Johnson – USGS Wetland and Aquatic Research Center

Teresa Newton – USGS Upper Midwest Environment Science Center
