Richard Seidel - Uniting Ecology and Genetics to Resolve Challenging Problems Involving Endangered Species
Amphipod crustaceans comprising the Gammarus pecos species complex are endemic along the Pecos River of New Mexico and Texas. At least one entity in this complex is a federally listed endangered species, but identification and monitoring of these amphipods present some challenges due to their cryptic morphology. Data from Richard’s ongoing PhD research dealing with sequencing of the cytochrome oxidase I and 16S rRNA genes will likely merit separate species description and consideration for state and/or federal protection.
