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, ...
Taphonomic signature as a function of environmental process shells and shell beds in a hurricane-influenced inlet on the Texas coast USA.
Criteria for taphonomic processes, including dissolution, breakage, abrasion, size sorting and shell orientation, were statistically correlated against environmental parameters representing shell source, depositional ...
The energetic cost of Perkinsus marinus parasitism in oysters: quantification of the thioglycollate method.
A quantitative method for counting Perkinsus marinus hypnospores is described. Using the method, Mackin's commonly used 0-5 point scale of infection intensity can be shown to be exponential. From general relationships ...
