Application of a dynamic energy budget model to the Pacific oyster, Crassostrea gigas, reared under various environmental conditions
The Dynamic Energy Budget (DEB) model (Kooijman, S.A.L.M., 1986. Energy budgets can explain body size relations. J. Theor. Biol. 121, 269-282; Kooijman, S.A.L.M., 2000. Dynamic Energy and MassExpand

Oyster vasa-like gene as a marker of the germline cell development in Crassostrea gigas.
The oyster vasa-like gene was previously demonstrated to be specifically expressed in germline cells of adult oysters Crassostrea gigas. In the present study, this gene was used as a molecular markerExpand

Temperature and photoperiod drive Crassostrea gigas reproductive internal clock
This study examined the gametogenic cycle of Crassostrea gigas in controlled conditions over one year, with a focus on the initiation of gametogenesis. This work analysed also the role of temperatureExpand

The oyster vasa-like gene: a specific marker of the germline in Crassostrea gigas.
The vasa gene is a key determinant for germline formation in eukaryotes. This gene, highly conserved through evolution, encodes a RNA helicase protein member of the DEAD-box family. To understand theExpand

Gametogenic cycle and reproductive effort of the tropical blacklip pearl oyster, Pinctada margaritifera (Bivalvia: Pteriidae), cultivated in Takapoto atoll (French Polynesia).
The gametogenic cycle and the reproductive effort of the blacklip pearl oyster, Pinctada margaritifera, cultivated in Takapoto lagoon were studied for a 1-year period (March 1997-April 1998) byExpand

Genetically based resistance to summer mortality in the Pacific oyster (Crassostrea gigas) and its relationship with physiological, immunological characteristics and infection processes
Summer mortality of Pacific oysters is known in several countries. However no specific pathogen has been systematically associated with this phenomenon. A complex combination of environmental andExpand

Filtration by the pearl oyster, Pinctada margaritifera, under conditions of low seston load and small particle size in a tropical lagoon habitat
Abstract In the oligotrophic waters of tropical atoll lagoons where Pinctada margaritifera lives and is farmed, primary production is mainly due to picoplankters ( 1 μm never exceeds 1.5 mg l −1 . ToExpand

Experimental shift in diet δ13C: A potential tool for ecophysiological studies in marine bivalves
To test the potential of diet switching experiments in ecophysiological studies of marine invertebrates, stable carbon isotope ratios were measured at different seasons in the gonad, adductor muscle,Expand
