Unionid Shape File Info for Assessment of uncontained Zequanox applications in a Midwestern lake

We applied Zequanox using a custom-engineered, boat mounted application system to replicated 0.30 Hectare plots within a small inland lake. The objectives of these applications were to determine if uncontained, open-water Zequanox applications could effectively control zebra mussel populations and protect native unionid mussel populations within zebra mussel infested systems. The datasets inc...

Evaluation of dissolved carbon dioxide (CO2) as a non-physical deterrent to invasive Red Swamp Crayfish (Procambarus clarkii) and Rusty Crayfish (Faxonius rusticus): Data

This data was collected to determine responses of red swamp crayfish and rusty crayfish to CO2-enriched water to determine the utility of CO2 as a crayfish control tool. Avoidance tests, emergence tests, and loss of equilibrium (LOE) tests were performed to determine crayfish behavior in CO2-enriched water. Avoidance data (TimeinChamber2.csv, Crossings.csv, FirstLastShuttle.csv, A

Bacteriology of Unionid Mussels: Data

The diagnosis of bacterial disease in freshwater unionid mussels has been hindered by a lack of baseline information regarding the microbial communities associated with these animals. In this study, we cultured and identified bacteria from the hemolymph of stable mussel populations from the upper Mississippi River basin and compared results to mussel populations associated with a mortality...

2019 Emiquon Preserve 4-Band Mosaic

This mosaic was created using high-resolution aerial imagery collected on September 17, 2019 with a Phase One iXU-R 180 aerial camera co-mounted with a Phase One iXU-RS 160 Achromatic camera. The raw image files from the two cameras are combined to create 4-band imagery. The mission was flown at approximately 1,2000 meters above ground level resulting in a ground sample distance of 0.15 meter...

Data from 92 sediment incubation experiments using sediments collected from the Fox and Duck rivermouths (adjacent to Green Bay, Lake Michigan)

This dataset contains measurements of water chemistry taken from experimental incubation of sediment cores collected from the Fox and Duck rivermouths during the 2016 growing season. In addition, some characteristics of the sediment were recorded. This data can be used to generate estimates of nutrient change over time, due to flux of nutrients from the sediments. These flux estimates (o...

Carbon dioxide-induced mortality of four species of North American fishes

There is growing interest in the use of carbon dioxide (CO2) as a management tool for controlling invasive fishes. However, there is limited published data on susceptibility of many commonly encountered species to elevated CO2 concentrations. Our objective was to estimate the 24-h LC50 and LC95 of four fishes (Rainbow Trout Oncorhynchus mykiss, Common Carp Cyprinus Carpio, Channel C
