What is the ecological niche of a Zebra Mussel?
The niche of a zebra mussel is in ballast waters. A niche of a zebra mussel is where the zebra mussel occupies its "habitat".
No, not at all. They are completely different things. Zebras are very distantly related to zebra mussels, the only connection being that they are both members of the animal kingdom. The name zebra mussel is based only on the somewhat stripy appearance of the mussel, not on an actual relationship to the zebra.
there are 2 theories. some people think they came in ballast water tanks but some people think that it was brought here on purpose because the Round Goby eats the Zebra Mussel(another invasive specie) and the Zebra mussel was in the Great Lakes first so people think that someone brought them here to take care of the zebra mussel invasion but as it turns out, the Round Goby became invasive as well and sorta helped…
