Solomon, Levi E., Richard M. Pendleton, Robert A. Hrabik, and Andrew F. Casper. 2016. Population Trends and a Distributional Record of Selected Fish Species from the Illinois River. Transactions of the Illinois State Academy of Science, Volume 109, pp. 57-61.
Illinois has a rich history of knowledge regarding the status and distribution of native and non-native fish species throughout the state. In addition, ongoing collections and publications continue to update this knowledge base. However, recent collections in the lower Illinois River show the need for an update of current knowledge for two species, Shoal Chub Macrhybopsis hyostoma and Channel Shiner Notropis wickliffi, and a verified distributional record of Banded Darter Etheostoma zonale.
