Abstract

A field survey of the Strong River, Mississippi, in 2001 yielded 69 live mussels and 489 valves, representing fourteen species. Potamilus purpuratus and Tritogonia verrucosa were the most numerically abundant species found, while Pyganodon grandis was the least abundant species encountered. Neither Elliptio arctata nor Ligumia recta, both imperiled species, was found.
