Interesting little ditty on pumpkinseeds switching some of their diet to
zebra mussels:

The referenced article is found on the JGLR website article index at:

Search on "pumpkinseed" and you'll get it as the first returned value. If
you have trouble getting it (I may only be getting it because I'm in a .edu
domain) let me know, I'd be glad to forward you the pdf.

Might make an easy way to get some missing shellfish back in the diet of
pumpkinseeds and orangespots if you're in areas where zebra mussels abound.
