Distribution of Tubifex tubifex lineages and Myxobolus cerebralis infection in the San Juan River, New Mexico
Entry ID: MSU_20

Abstract: A 2 km reach of the Navajo Dam tailwater of the San Juan River, NM was sampled in August and December 2001 and June 2002 to characterize environmental factors influencing the distribution and density of Tubifex tubifex lineages and Myxobolus cerebralis infection rates.

Purpose: The objectives of the study were to characterize the effects that environmental variables (i.e., water velocity, depth, and organic matter) have on the distribution and infection level within populations of T. tubifex and to determine whether these populations can be distinguished by genetic lineage.
