Abstract

Genetic diversity is a key indicator of the viability of a population. Non-point source pollution has been shown to decrease genetic diversity and increase differentiation among populations in aquatic ecosystems. This study focuses on the impact of water quality on the genetic variation of the Creek Chub (Semothilus atromaculatus), a freshwater fish found in streams and agricultural ditches in the Midwest.
