Genetic Detection and Monitoring of Aquatic Nuisance Goby and Mussel Populations

This study used genetic markers as monitoring tools to discriminate   among species, populations, and invasive sources/spread sites for   exotic gobies and dreissenid mussels.  The population genetic   structure of the exotic invasions of round gobies, tubenose gobies,   and zebra and quagga mussels were analyzed from sites in Lake Erie   and St. Clair in comparison with specimens from native Eurasian   sites, as well as individuals sampled from an invasive population in   the Gulf of Gdansk, Poland, and samples from the other Great Lakes.    Methodology included DNA sequencing and population genetic   statistical analysis.    (AIS); (aquatic invasive species); (ANS); (aquatic nuisance species);  (round gobies); (round goby); (tubenose gobies); (tubenose goby);  (zebra mussel); (zebra mussels); (quagga mussel); (quagga mussel);  (exotic species)
