Dr. Kody Kuehnl recently was part of reintroducing 1700 endangered northern riffleshell mussels back into Ohio waters. This is part of a 5 year project in partnership with The Ohio State University, the Columbus Zoo and Aquarium, USFWS, Ohio Fish and Wildlife, and the PA Boat and Fish Commission. You can view several of the articles under the blogroll located in the sidebar.
Dr. Kody Kuehnl recently received a grant award from the United States Fish and Wildlife Service’s Endangered Species Great Lakes Restoration Initiative in March 2010. The title of the grant is “Conservation genetics of the endangered clubshell, (Pleurobema clava) and rayed bean (Villosa fabalis), host-fish identification of the rayed bean, and an investigation into potentially causative factors for absence of recruitment in the East Fork West Branch St. Joseph River population of clubshell.”
