Sources of Local Variation in Polynuclear Aromatic Hydrocarbon and Pesticide Body Burden in Oysters (Crassostrea-Virginica) from Galveston Bay, Texas
(, 1993 Nov)
1. Eggs and sperm contain significantly more PAH (polynuclear aromatic hydrocarbon) than somatic tissues in oysters (Crassostrea virginica) taken from Galveston Bay. 2. The quantity of gonadal material was the most important ...
Impact of channelization on oyster production: a hydrodynamic-oyster population model for Galveston Bay, Texas
(, 2002 Dec)
A hydrodynamic-oyster population dynamics model was developed to assess the effect of a change in ship channel configuration under different freshwater inflow regimes and different future hydrologies on oyster (Crassostrea ...
Influence of climate change on interannual variation in population attributes of Gulf of Mexico oysters
(, 1998 Jun)
Gulf of Mexico oysters were sampled each winter for 8 y (1986 to 1993) as part of the National Status and Trends Mussel Watch Program. Each oyster was analyzed for the prevalence and infection intensity of the oyster ...
Influence of water allocation and freshwater inflow on oyster production: A hydrodynamic-oyster population model for Galveston Bay, Texas, USA
(, 2003 Jan)
A hydrodynamic-oyster population model was developed to assess the effect of changes in freshwater inflow on oyster populations in Galveston Bay, Texas, USA. The population model includes the effects of environmental ...
Modeling oyster populations. 3. Critical feeding periods, growth and reproduction
A time-dependent population dynamics model for oyster (Crassostrea virginica) populations is used to test the hypothesis that variations in the seasonal sequence in temperature and food supply are responsible for observed ...
Temporal variability in food availability to natural oyster populations
(, 1992 199)
Productivity in oyster populations is partially determined by food availability, which is dependent on the amount of food resources in the water and characteristics of the water flow making that food available to the ...
