Abstract

Due to human action, the rusty crayfish (Orconectes rusticus) is now present in local rivers and placing pressure on native Sanborn’s crayfish (Orconectes sanbornii). My research looks at the genetic differences within the mitochondrial genomes of the two species to explore the relationship between them. Using the mtDNA of other related crayfish, I identify regions of genetic difference between our target species to answer questions of hybridization and evolutionary history.
