Thanks for letting me conduct research using the extensive collections of freshwater mussel shells from the University of Michigan Museum of Zoology.  The collections are essential to my project, because they will allow me to quantify the shell morphology of species in distinct waterbodies.  I will use this information to determine if differing shell morphology between species impacts a single species' ability to persist following an invasion of zebra or quagga mussels.
