Environmental influences on the occurrence of coastal sharks in estuarine waters
Long-term fisheries independent gill net surveys conducted in Texas estuaries from 1975 to 2006 were used to develop spatially explicit estuarine habitat use models for 3 coastal shark species: bull shark Carcharhinus ...
Utilization of estuarine organic matter during growth and migration by juvenile brown shrimp Penaeus aztecus in a South Texas estuary
The trophic dynamic links of migratory juvenile brown shrimp Penaeus aztecus were investigated along the South Texas coast from the Aransas Pass to Corpus Christi and Nueces Bay and to the nursery ground in the Nueces ...
Gulf-Wide Decreases in the Size of Large Coastal Sharks Documented by Generations of Fishermen
(Taylor and Francis Open, 2013)
Large sharks are top predators in most coastal and marine ecosystems throughout the world, and evidence of their reduced prominence in marine ecosystems has been a serious concern for fisheries and ecosystem management. ...
Role and Value of Nitrogen Regulation Provided by Oysters (Crassostrea virginica) in the Mission-Aransas Estuary, Texas, USA
Suspension-feeding activities of oysters impart a potentially significant benefit to estuarine ecosystems via reduction of water column nutrients, plankton and seston biomass, and primary productivity which can have a ...
Folding patterns of immunoglobulin molecules identified by urea gradient electrophoresis.
(ASBMB , 1994)
The reversible denaturant-induced unfolding of immunoglobulin molecules has been analyzed by transverse urea gradient gel electrophoresis and the effects that urea-induced unfolding exerts on the functional properties ...
A Restoration Suitability Index Model for the Eastern Oyster (Crassostrea virginica) in the Mission-Aransas Estuary, TX, USA
Oyster reefs are one of the most threatened marine habitats on earth, with habitat loss resulting from water quality degradation, coastal development, destructive fishing practices, overfishing, and storm impacts. For ...
