In this study, we examined if the biogeographic break for offshore-pelagic communities applies to nearshore kelp forests. Northeast Coast Beginning in central Maine Bay 12prevalence and infection intensity of prokaryotic inclusions showed a clinal trend with prevalence and infection intensity below the global median in the north and above the global median in Delaware Bay Bay 36. Quantitative structure activity relationships for the effect of hydrophobic organic chemicals on the rate of feeding of mussels.
Haplosporidium costale Seaside organisma parasite of the Eastern oyster, is present in Long Island Sound. [FIGURE 1 OMITTED] Tissue pathologies, mostly focal and diffuse hemocytic infiltration, but also including instances of tissue necrosis, were equally common in mytilids and oysters, but occurred significantly less commonly in dreissenids Fig.

Characteristic distribution of chironomids in the rivers polluted with heavy metals. 004 A A B Intensity 0. Trends in chemical concentration in mussels and oysters collected along the US coast from 1986-1993.
Straughan D 1978 Analysis of mussel Mytilus californianus communities in areas chronically exposed to natural oil seepage. Comparisons Within Congeneric Taxa Mytilids on the East and West Coast The fraction of hosts with at least one quantifiable parasite was significantly higher in East-coast M.
Digestive tract and gill ciliates are demonstrably different taxa e. Concentrations of cadmium and zinc in seawater of Bohai Bay and their effects on biomarker responses in the bivalve Chlamysfarreri.
No direct evidence was found to assess this pressure.
Toxicity of metal mixtures to phytoplankton.
On the average, parasite distributional patterns along a stretch of coastline were more often clinal in nature in mytilids, in that prevalence and infection intensity tended to change gradually over relatively large distance scales, and more bounded in nature in oysters, in that prevalence and infection intensity tended to change more sharply over shorter distance scales.
