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 ...

Field studies using the oyster Crassostrea virginica to determine mercury accumulation and depuration rates
In order to better understand the behavior of mercury in Lavaca Bay, the rate and amount of mercury a clean oyster would accumulate when transplanted to a contaminated estuary and the rate of mercury depuration by contaminated ...
