Modeling oyster populations: III. Critical feeding periods, growth and reproduction
It is hypothesized that variations in the seasonal sequence in temperature and food supply cause variations in oyster reproductive effort. Causes of alterations in the duration of spawning and seasonal spawning patterns ...
Modeling oyster populations: the effect of density and food supply on production
A time-dependent model has been developed to assess the response of oyster populations to environmental variables and the importance of population density in optimizing yield under varying climatic and hydrologic conditions. ...
Modeling oyster populations: I. A commentary on filtration rate. Is faster always better?
Measurements relating bivalve size to filtration rate usually fall on one of two curves. The upper curve predicts filtration rates three times greater than those of the lower curve. Using a time-dependent numerical model ...
Modeling oyster populations. IV: Rates of mortality, population crashes and management
A time-dependent energy-flow model was used to examine how mortality affects oyster populations over the latitudinal gradient from Galveston Bay, Texas, to Chesapeake Bay, Virginia. Simulations using different mortality ...
Modeling oyster populations II. Adult size and reproductive effort.
A time-dependent model of energy flow in post-settlement oyster populations is used to examine the factors that influence adult size and reproductive effort in a particular habitat, Galveston Bay, Texas, and in habitats ...
