West Virginia Project
Statewide conservation assessment of West Virginia crayfishes
March 2007 - December 2012
- West Virginia Division of Natural Resources
Crayfishes are recognized as an imperiled fauna, however, the diversity and distribution of crayfishes are not well understood. In West Virginia, few studies have focused on the crayfish fauna. The focus of this study is to increase understanding of crayfish distributions and crayfish diversity within West Virginia to aid the West Virginia Division of Natural Resources in conservation and management planning.
