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, ...
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 ...
