The distribution of Perkinsus marinus in Gulf coast oysters: its relationship with temperature, reproduction, and pollutant body burden.
Oysters from 48 Gulf of Mexico sites were examined for presence and infection intensity of the endoparasite, Perkinsus (=Dermocystidium) marinus (Macklin, Owen, Collier, 1950) as part of NOAA's Status and Trends Mussel ...
The effect of the ectoparasitic pyramidellid snail, Boonea impressa, on the growth and health of oysters, Crassostrea virginica, under field conditions.
Boonea (= Odostomia) impressa are contagiously distributed on oyster reefs so that some oysters are parasitized more than others. The parasite's mobility and the ability of oysters to recover from snail parasitism may be ...
The spatial distribution of Perkinsus marinus, a protozoan parasite, in relation to its oyster host (Crassostrea virginica) and an ectoparasitic gastropod (Boonea impressa).
The endoparasitic protozoan Perkinsus (=Dermocystidium) marinus is a major cause of oyster mortality in the Gulf of Mexico. The small-scale spatial distribution of P. marinus, its oyster host, and a second oyster parasite, ...
A polyclonal antibody developed from Perkinsus marinus hypnospores fails to cross react with other life stages of P. marinus in oyster (Crassostrea virginica) tissues.
Polyclonal antiserum was produced from Perkinsus marinus hypnospores harvested from oyster tissue cultivated in fluid thioglycollate medium. The specificity of the antiserum for hypnospores was tested using indirect sandwich ...
Oyster disease and climate change. Are yearly changes in Perkinsus marinus parasitism in oysters (Crassostrea virginica) controlled by climatic cycles in the Gulf of Mexico?
Fluctuations in the protozoan Perkinsus marinus (pathogen of eastern oysters) have been related to salinity and temperature. Low temperatures and salinities have been shown to limit infection. The distribution of Perkinsus ...
