Title:Resurrecting Illinois' Biological Heritage, Reintroduction of a Locally Extirpated Stonefly
Author(s):DeWalt, R. Edward
Subject(s):Acroneuria frison
Illinois Stone
conservation genetics
Geographic Coverage:Illinois
Abstract:The major goal of this project is to reintroduce A. frisoni to parts of eastern Illinois from where it has been extirpated since the early 1960s. A candidate stream in the region is the Middle Fork of the Vermilion River, a National Scenic River. This stream is of the best water quality in the region (Sangunett 2005) and is surrounded by much public property above the Interstate 74 corridor. Much preparation is necessary to begin such a reintroduction. Tasks include the following: (1) update what is known of the historical and contemporary distribution of this species, (2) conduct a rangewide screening of the population genetic structure of the species, (3) select source populations for reintroduction from the genetic screening results, (4) reintroduce the species, and (5) conduct follow-up studies to determine if the reintroduction was successful.
