|Abstract:||In July 1994, freshwater mussels were collected using qualitative and quantitative (0.25 sq m total substratum) methods at the following locations in the upper Mississippi River (UMR): directly on and between two wingdams at river mile (RM) 741.6 in Pool 5. Lake Pepin (RM 776.8), and an area immediately downriver of Lake Pepin (RM 764.4). The purpose was to document density, species diversity, species richness, community composition of native mussels, and density and percent abundance of the recently introduced nonindigenous zebra mussel, Dreissena polymopha.|
