Freshwater mussels are a species-rich group with biodiversity patterns shaped by life history strategies that include an obligate parasitic larval stage. Anchored hybrid enrichment (AHE) and ancestral character reconstruction (ACR) revealed convergence of life history strategies involving larval morphologies that reduce size to increase fecundity and require growth during encapsulation to increase survival post-metamorphosis.
ScienceBase brings together the best information it can find about USGS researchers and offices to show connections to publications, projects, and data. We are still working to improve this process and information is by no means complete. If you don't see everything you know is associated with you, a colleague, or your office, please be patient while we work to connect the dots. Feel free to contact sciencebase@usgs.gov.
