Morphological Variability of Dreissena bugensis Andrusov Under Conditions of the Regulated Dnieper Outflow


The polymorphism of periostracum coloration and pattern was described first for Dreissena bugensis Andrusov. Morphological variability of its groups inhabiting areas of 5 dams of hydroelectric stations located on reservoirs of the Dnieper cascade was analyzed on 9 parameters of shell coloration and pattern. Samples collected both above and below the dams differed by their index of morphological variability.
