Triops longicaudatus, the Tadpole shrimp

Hey all, I have been down due to surgery but thought a quick post about the manuscript Kelly and I just had published in the Journal of Integrated Pest Management was in order.This was a fun project from the get go. Consider growing some shrimp with your kiddos. They are really that cool.

In addition to getting to play with a neat organism, we also got to find where in Missouri shrimp were located. This is important knowledge for rice farmers and provides a starting point from which range enlargement can be judged.

Read the paper and maybe you can have your shrimp fun this winter.
