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, ...
