Habitat Requirements of the Golden Orb (Quadrula aurea): Final Report for Texas Water Development Board and Texas Parks and Wildlife Department

Habitat Requirements of the Golden Orb (Quadrula aurea): Final Report for Texas Water Development Board and Texas Parks and Wildlife Department

Date: May 31, 2012
Creator: Hammontree, Sarah E.; Mabe, J. A. & Kennedy, J. H.
Description: "This study is focused on the determination of habitat parameters influencing distributions of Golden Orb (Q.aurea) mussels in the Guadalupe-San Antonio river basin. The objectives of this study can be summarized by the following task: 1) Identify four samples with sufficient populations of Q.aurea to evaluate habitat parameters. 2) Evaluate the distribution of Q.aurea at selected sample sites in relation to habitat parameters and monitor flow conditions at these locations. 3) Calculate the shear stress ratio (RSS) for multiple flow conditions and the relationship with mussel density at selected sites. 4) Compile and summarize life history information for Q.aurea and related species."
