Abstract

Little is known about the population structure and habitat use of Macrhybopsis chubs in the Missouri River Basin (MRB). Chubs are characteristic of large Great Plains Rivers and serve as important indicators for the health of ecosystems. Environmental parameters and gut contents have been investigated to evaluate the use of habitats. Future work will focus on analyzing genomic sequences to study the population genetic structure for the shoal chub, Macrhybopsis hyostoma.
