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 ...
Effect of parasitism by the pyramidellid gastropod Boonea impressa on the net productivity of oysters (Crassostrea virginica).
The effect of an ectoparasitic gastropod, Boonea (=Odostomia) impressa, on the energy budget of its host, the American oyster, Crassostrea virginica, was examined. A model was developed from laboratory and field data, as ...
Aspects of reproduction, larval development, and morphometrics in the pyramidellid, Boonea impressa (=Odostomia impressa), (gastropoda: opisthobranchia).
Boonea impressa is an important ectoparasite of the American oyster, crassostrea virginica. As a parasite, their impact on host population dynamics and subsequent changes in community structure may be important. Here, the ...
Small scale spatial distribution of oysters (Crassostrea virginica) on oyster reefs.
The small-scale spatial distribution of oysters was examined on 11 reefs in the Copano Bay - Aransas Bay area of the Texas coast. Small oysters (<= 2cm) were contagiously distributed (s^2/x > 1) and positively spatially ...
