USGS Science Vision for Native Freshwater Mussel Research in the United States
February 14 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm EST
Wednesday, February 14
2 pm Eastern Time
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.
