Biology and Management of Invasive Quagga and Zebra Mussels by Wai Hing Wong, Shawn L. Gerstenberger

By Wai Hing Wong, Shawn L. Gerstenberger

Biology and administration of Invasive Quagga and Zebra Mussels within the Western United States is a synthesis of the biology and administration of invasive mussels from scientists and executives engaged on invasive quagga and zebra mussels within the western usa. Invasive dreissenid mussels have unfold all through southwestern usa at exceptional speeds, and current a distinct chance to local ecosystems. This e-book files the efforts, either winning and unsuccessful, of people and companies after dreissenid mussels invaded the West.

Although the ebook is designed in particular for scientists and bosses struggling with invasive mussels in western waterbodies, it bargains a chance for scientists and lake managers around the world to check winning innovations suitable to their distinctive state of affairs. It comprises information records and protocols concerning early detection, prevention, legislation, tracking, and regulate of those invasive pests within the West. It compares quagga and zebra mussels within the western usa with these mussels colonizing the nice Lakes and eu waters.
