A component of State Wildlife Grant T-82-R-1 (Defining expectations for mussel communities in Illinois wadeable streams) is to evaluate species’ abundance, distribution, habitat requirements, ecological role and amount of information available regarding the species for all mussel Species in Greatest Need of Conservation (SGNC) in Illinois. This information will be used to update the freshwater mussel SGNC accounts included in the Illinois Comprehensive Wildlife Conservation Plan developed in 2005. This document updates Appendix I and II and Actions for the Streams Campaign for mussel SGNC to include in the 2015 revised Illinois Comprehensive Wildlife Action Plan. Additionally, distribution maps and host fish information for mussel SGNC and other species found currently or historically in Illinois are included.
