Summary of the total number of specimens of freshwater mussel species of the Family Unionidae
collected at each site where specimens were found.
However, the life cycles of species in the family Unionidae
are atypical for bivalves.

North American freshwater mussels in the family Unionidae
represent a diverse and ecologically important group (Parmalee & Bogan 1998).
Protoanodonta conchae Delvene and Araujo has been defined as a new genus and a new species of the Family Unionidae
(Order Unionoida), from the Lower Cretaceous.
Water mites of the genus Unionicola (Acari: Unionicolidae) are common symbionts of freshwater mussels of the family Unionidae
The best know elements of the fauna are the freshwater mussels belonging to the family Unionidae
First, like other members of the family Unionidae
, where 70% of the 270 species known from North America are considered imperiled (Williams and Neves, 1995), little is known about the life history, fish hosts, glochidial morphology or demographics of L.
The transition from glochidium to juvenile is a critical step in the life history of freshwater bivalves of the family Unionidae
That is, research in Texas on freshwater mussels of the family Unionidae
has been neither intensive nor extensive in the past.
