Lake Mendota, Wisconsin, USA, Zebra Mussel Body Size and Biomass Biometrics 2018

Abstract

We sampled 98 individuals of the zebra mussel (Dreissena polymorpha) population of Lake Mendota from many littoral zone sites in 2018 to create biometric relationships between several metrics of body size and several metrics of biomass, including length, width, height, living weight, wet weight, dry weight, shell weight, shell-free dry weight, and ash-free dry weight. We selected individuals to span a wide range of body sizes and found strong relationships between most combinations of body size and biomass metrics.<br/>
