Abstract: Recent invasion of North American freshwater ecosystems by the zebra mussel (Dreissena polymorpha) has prompted efforts to better understand processes influencing population dynamics. Reported here is a comprehensive review and evaluation of information concerning zebra mussel populations, with emphasis on populations in the rivers of the upper midwest United States. Included are reviews of reproduction, growth, abundance, and invasion trends. Also included are discussions of population modeling approaches and recommended data collection requirements for future studies.
