dc.description.abstractThe biology and ecology of the inflated heelsplitter mussel (Potamilus inflatus), listed as threatened, was studied at dredged material disposal areas, adjacent areas unaffected by disposal, and two stable gravel bars on the Black Warrior and Tombigbee (BWT) rivers in July 1994. Objectives were to (a) determine density, size, and age of P. inflatus in silt/sand substratum at areas affected and unaffected by disposal of dredged material; (b) determine density, size, and age of P. infatus at high-quality, stable gravel bars never affected by dredging; (c) collect data on water depth, velocity, and substratum type where P. infatus was found; and (d) examine the ability of P. inflatus to rebury after being dislodged from the substratum and to extricate itself after being buried in sand.-
