Our newest bulletin has recently been delivered: Contaminants in Unionid Mussels from the Confluence of the Mississippi and Illinois Rivers by INHS's own Joan Esarey, Dave Soucek and Jeff Levengood along with University of Illinois' Robert J. Hudson and Wade Wimer and SIU's Richard S. Halbrook has been assigned Bulletin 38(5): 197-214.
This bulletin reports preliminary research on pollution from metals and pesticides found in freshwater mussels at the confluence of the Mississippi and Illinois rivers. Results from this investigation suggest that unionid mussels in this area may be at risk from elevated exposure to environmental contaminants. Further research to examine health and productivity of unionids in this area is warranted.
The price is $10.00 plus shipping and handling.
