Silver Shiner & Banded Darter Manuscript Submitted To Southeastern Naturalist
I just sent the manuscript, "First Records of Notropis photogenis (Silver Shiner) and Etheostoma zonale (Banded Darter) in the Flint River, Alabama", to the journal Southeastern Naturalist. It's formatted as a Note, a short article, in this case describing finding these two species in the Flint River, and briefly why it's significant. Brian Thompson is the co-author. As always, I hope they like it. The Abstract follows:
Notropis photogenis (Silver Shiner) and Etheostoma zonale (Banded Darter) were collected from the Flint River in Madison County, Alabama, a northern tributary to the Tennessee River. Both species have been found in other northern tributaries to the Tennessee River in Alabama, but have never been reported from the Flint River. Because of its sensitivity to anthropogenic pollution, the Silver Shiner deserves Special Concern status in Alabama.
