Freshwater Mollusk Conservation Society Meeting in St. Charles, Missouri

Jer Pin Chong and I attended the bi-annual meeting of the Freshwater Mollusk Conservation Society in St. Charles, Missouri this past week. The meeting was well attended and there were a number of interesting talks.

Jer Pin presented some of his dissertation research comparing the genetic structure of two sister-species Leptodea fragilis and Leptodea leptodon and their fish-host, Aplodinotus grunniens. The talk was very well received, and Jer Pin received Honorable Mention for best student oral presentation at the meeting! Congratulations Jer Pin!

2015 Surveying for freshwater mussels on the Rio Grande

I assisted some colleagues with surveying for Texas hornshell mussels on the Rio Grande in September. It was a great trip overall and I was able to collect some samples of two species of interest for a future phylogeography project.
