    The zebra mussel, Dreissena polymorpha, continues to spread from its native range in Eurasia to Europe and North America, causing billions of dollars in damage and dramatically altering invaded aquatic ecosystems. Despite these impacts, there are few genomic resources for Dreissena or related bivalves, with nearly million years of divergence between zebra mussels and its closest sequenced   Effect of current velocity on byssal thread production by the zebra mussel (Dreissena polymorpha) was investigated. Number of threads produced by samples of 20 mussels at 25{degrees}C exposed to currents velocities of , , , m/s were counted over 21 days. Mussels were removed from current daily and number of new threads counted

      In particular, we choose as biological model the freshwater zebra mussel Dreissena polymorpha (Mollusca: Bivalvia), considering its physiological characteristics, as the high filtration rate (Binelli et al., , Binelli et al., ; Magni et al., ), its easiness in stabulation, and its key role in the European and American freshwater Freshwater fouling invertebrate zebra mussels (Dreissena polymorpha) harbor a diverse population of microorganisms in the Great Lakes of North America. Among the indigenous microorganisms, selective species are opportunistic pathogens to zebra mussels. Pathogenicity to zebra mussels by opportunistic bacteria isolated from the mussels was investigated in this ://

The purpose of this study is to review the early life history of the freshwater zebra mussel (Dreissena polymorpha (Pallas)). It is assumed, and there is evidence (S.J. Nichols, unpublished The zebra mussel Dreissena polymorpha combines the properties of a competent and useful freshwater indicator species because of its wide geographic distribution in static and running waters, its high fecundity and its continuous availability throughout the year.

In consequence, a considerable interest in basic ecological research, indicator studies and ecotoxology was focused on this mussel in Dreissena polymorpha (Pallas, ) – zebra mussel: References Expert(s): Expert: Notes: Reference for: Journal/Book Name, Vol.

There were 17 known waterbodies with zebra mussel populations, 8 of which were included in this study The freshwater zebra mussel (Dreissena polymorpha) is a notorious biofouling organism. It adheres to a variety of substrata underwater by means of a proteinaceous structure called the byssus, which consists of a number of threads with adhesive plaques at the tips.

The byssal proteins are difficult to characterize due to extensive cross-linking Specimen ID: Group: Mollusks-Bivalves: Genus: Dreissena: Species: polymorpha: Common Name: zebra mussel: State: TX: County: Concho: Locality: Colorado River ?SpecimenID=   Zebra mussel (Dreissena polymorpha) eradication efforts in Christmas Lake, Minnesota.
