Where to Obtain Fairy Shrimp
I am an undergraduate at a California University. I am planning a project involving the testing of allelopathic chemicals of european pennyroyal on fairy shrimp populations in disturbed vernal pools. To do this, I need a native fairy shrimp species. I have my eyes on Linderiella occidentalis or Streptocephalus nealii, but I do not know where to obtain them. The one place I have found did not give a species ID beyond genus. Would you guys happen to know where I might obtain cysts? Really, anything that has a population in or near California would be awesome.
