Modeling the transmission of Perkinsus marinus in the Eastern oyster Crassostrea virginica

Dermo disease caused by the protistan Perkinsus marinus in Eastern oysters Crassotrea virginica is an important source of mortality impacting oyster population dynamics resulting in substantial losses in fisheries and aquaculture. The rapid transmission and spread of the disease minimized the importance of transmission models and past models (proliferation-based models) assumed simple density-dependent transmission or … Continue reading Modeling the transmission of Perkinsus marinus in the Eastern oyster Crassostrea virginica
