Abstract

In the year 1980 drought prevailed in south-central Kansas causing desiccation of shallower waters in streams. Numbers of dead unionacean mussels observed at twelve stations on two such streams are tabulated. Relevance of drought to past and future of the mussel fauna of the streams is discussed.
