Freshwater Mussel Links

A great place to start if you're interested in researching freshwater mussels is the book:

Strayer, D. L.  2008.  Freshwater Mussel Ecology: A Multifactor Approach to Distribution and Abundance.  University of California Press.  204 pp.

There are hundreds of websites devoted to freshwater mussels.  We've included a few links to some of the ones we visit most often. Many of these have great sources of additional links to other websites.
