A hydrodynamic-oyster population model for Galveston Bay, Texas
(, 1995 191)
A hydrodynamic-oyster population model has been developed to assess the effect of different salinity regimes, produced by changes in freshwater inflow, on oyster populations in Galveston Bay, Texas. The population model ...
Quantifying the effects of environmental change on an oyster population: A modeling study
(, 2000 Oct)
Three models are combined to investigate the effects of changes in environmental conditions on the population structure of the Eastern oyster, Crassostrea virginica. The first model, a time-dependent model of the oyster ...
Quantitative evaluation of gonadal proteins in male and female oysters (Crassostrea virginica ) using an immunological technique
(, 1989 199)
A polyclonal antibody has been produced against egg protein and sperm protein of the American oyster for obtaining a weight-based gonadal index. The gonadal index was expressed in the form: mg gonadal protein/g wet wt ...
Modeling oyster populations 2. Adult size and reproductive effort
A time-dependent model of energy flow in post-settlement oyster (Crassostrea virginica) populations is used to examine the factors that influence adult size and reproductive effort in a particular habitat, Galveston Bay, ...

Environmental-Effects on the Growth and Development of Eastern Oyster, Crassostrea-Virginica (Gmelin, 1791), Larvae - A Modeling Study
(, 1993 Dec)
The effects of temperature, food concentration, salinity and turbidity on the growth and development of Crassostrea virginica larvae were investigated with a time-dependent mathematical model. Formulations used in the model ...
Spatial patterns of oyster distribution: A modeling study
(, 1995 191)
A size-structured, time-dependent population model has been developed to investigate growth and mortality of larvae and adults of Crassostrea virginica. Growth and mortality rates for adults and larvae are regulated by ...
Status and trends analysis of oyster reef habitat in Galveston Bay, Texas
(, 1993 200)
A new technique was utilized to determine the status and trends of oysters (Crassostrea virginica) populations in Galveston Bay, Texas. An acoustic profiler was used to differentiate substrate type, a fathometer to assess ...
Modeling oyster populations: The effect of density and food supply on production
(, 1991 199)
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. ...
