Research & Community Activities
Professor Pryor’s research revolves around freshwater ecology. Recently, the focus has been aimed at mussels and their extirpation due to degraded water quality. Professor Pryor’s team has documented 30 mussel species in Allen County, Ind., including two federally endangered species. The team continues to collect water quality data in the St. Joseph River and at Crooked Lake. St. Joseph River Watershed Initiative provides some of the results from work with local freshwater mussels.
