Texas Parks and Wildlife Mussel collection
This collection of freshwater mussels of Texas was gathered by TPWD under the guidance of Robert Howells.
The collection is being curated, specimens have been imaged and source localities are georeferenced.
The material provides an excellent view of biodiversity of these mussels. Mussels are also very susceptible to pollution, tracking their health is thus also tracking the health of Texas rivers.
