This project was initiated because it is important to know whether molluscs other than Crassostrea virginica can serve as reservoirs of infection of C. virginica by Perkinsus marinus or other species of Perkinsus when one is designing strategies to culture the oysters in waters where the disease organism is present.
Includes atlas of Perkinsus spp. structure.
Project duration: October 1, 1991 to December 31, 1992
