Seagrass wasting disease varies with salinity and depth in natural Zostera marina populations
In the 1930s the wasting disease pathogen Labyrinthula zosterae is believed to have killed 90% of the temperate seagrass Zostera marina in the Atlantic Ocean. Despite the devastating impact of thisExpand

Modulation of the Eelgrass – Labyrinthula zosterae Interaction Under Predicted Ocean Warming, Salinity Change and Light Limitation
Marine infectious diseases can have large-scale impacts when they affect foundation species such as seagrasses and corals. Interactions between host and disease, in turn, may be modulated by multipleExpand

Seagrass wasting disease along a naturally occurring salinity gradient
In the 1930s, outbreaks of the wasting disease pathogen Labyrinthula zosterae caused a severe reduction of the eelgrass Zostera marina meadows in the Atlantic Ocean. Many surviving populations wereExpand

Complex Interactions of Temperature, Light and Tissue Damage on Seagrass Wasting Disease in Zostera marina
The temperate seagrass species eelgrass Zostera marina can be infected by the wasting disease pathogen Labyrinthula zosterae, which is believed to have killed about 90% of the seagrass in theExpand
Seagrass Wasting Disease Impact of abiotic factors and chemical defense
Eelgrass, Zostera marina, is the dominant seagrass species in the northern hemisphere, and forms large meadows that provide several important ecosystem services. In the 1930s about 90% of the Z.Expand
