Zebra Mussel - Dreissena polymorpha


Contact Me

Hello! Before talking about myself, I'd like to thank everyone who helped me with this project. From Dr. Greg Sandland for helping me take some awesome pictures of my Zebra Mussels, to my dad who helped me collect my samples.

My name is Allison and I am currently a freshman at UW-La Crosse. I come from a little town called East Troy. I am a Biomedical major, and I am also minoring in Chemistry. After graduating from UW-L, I plan on continuing on to Dental School and specializing in Oral Surgery.

I really enjoyed doing this project because I interact with Zebra Mussels in my every day life. I live on Lake Beulah, which is in East Troy, Wisconsin. Zebra Mussels have greatly affect our water level, water clarity, stability of our docks, and even the efficiency of our boats. Zebra Mussels are a growing problem for my community as well as many other surrounding communities. Not very many people know exactly why the Zebra Mussels are so influential in our environment, so I was very excited to share the information I learned about this topic with everyone who took the time to view my webpage.

Even though I spent long hours doing research for this project,

I am no where near being an expert. So I would love to hear any feedback, questions, or concerns you may have. Please email me at kubicek.alli@students.uwlax.edu with any of these. My classmates' web pages can be found at multipleorganisms.net, so please check those out as well!

Thank you for your time and I hope you enjoy my webpage!
