Global loss of 85% of oyster reef ecosystems over the past 130 yr (Beck et al. 2011) has led to both growing recognition of the services once provided by healthy oyster reef ecosystems (Grabowski et al. 2012) and increasing interest in restoring these ecosystems. In Chesapeake Bay, USA, populations of the native oyster Crassostrea virginica have been(More)
Restoration of ecologically important marine species and habitats is restricted by funding constraints and hindered by lack of information about trade-offs among restoration goals and the effectiveness of alternative restoration strategies. Because ecosystems provide diverse human and ecological benefits, achieving one restoration benefit may take place at(More)
From 1981 through 1989, serum samples from 855 white-tailed deer (Odocoileus virginianus) from Ossabaw Island, Georgia (USA), were tested for antibodies to bluetongue virus (BTV) and epizootic hemorrhagic disease virus (EHDV). During this period, prevalence of precipitating antibodies to BTV and EHDV as determined by agar gel immunodiffusion (AGID) tests(More)
Disease recurrence remains a major limitation to the use of marrow transplantation to treat leukemia. Previous transplant studies have demonstrated that higher doses of total-body irradiation result in less disease recurrence, but more toxicity. In this study, the possibility of delivering radiotherapy specifically to marrow using a radiolabeled anti-CD33(More)
Survival and growth of triploid Crassostrea virginica and triploid C. ariakensis were investigated at four sites surrounding Chesapeake Bay, United States, that varied in salinity, tidal regime, water depth, predation intensity and disease pressure. Four experimental treatments were established at each site:C. virginica;C. ariakensis; 50:50 ofC.(More)
We examined the possibility that a nonnative oyster species would provide an ecologically functional equivalent of the native oyster species if introduced into the Chesapeake Bay. Habitat complexity and associated benthic communities of experimental triploid Crassostrea virginica and Crassostrea ariakensis reefs were investigated at 4 sites of varying(More)
73 per cent of a group of albino rats whose diet was deficient in vitamin B have been found to have ulcerations of the gastric mucosa. A control group was found to be free from gastric lesions. Of 74 observed lesions eight were chronic, indurated ulcers resembling chronic peptic ulcer in man. The chronicity of the ulcers seems to be related to the duration(More)
During May 2015, passive acoustic recorders were deployed at eight subtidal oyster reefs within Harris Creek Oyster Sanctuary in Chesapeake Bay, Maryland USA. These sites were selected to represent both restored and unrestored habitats having a range of oyster densities. Throughout the survey, the soundscape within Harris Creek was dominated by the(More)
In vitro and in vivo infections were conducted to determine if the epizootic hemorrhagic disease (EHD) and bluetongue (BT) viruses would replicate in peripheral blood mononuclear (PBM) cells of white-tailed deer (Odocoileus virginianus). All of the North American EHD and BT viruses (EHD virus serotypes 1 and 2, and BT virus serotypes 2, 10, 11, 13, and 17)(More)
