belongs to Dr.
Professor of Biology at Macalester College. It was primarily started in
an attempt to facilitate information search and retrieval for
within the Macalester College Departments of Environmental Studies and
Biology. Much of the content deals with our research on freshwater
mussels in the St. Croix River, MN and WI. We are especially interested
in mussel conservation efforts and the relationship between changing
land-use patterns and the long-term health of mussel communities.
We have also become involved in the Ecological Research as Education Network (EREN) and are examining the impact of riparian vegetation on water temperature variation in small order streams.
