Microbial disease and the coral holobiont.
TLDR
The current understanding of the role of microorganisms in coral health and disease is reviewed, and the pressing interdisciplinary research priorities required to elucidate the mechanisms of disease are highlighted. Expand
AN OUTBREAK OF DOMOIC ACID POISONING ATTRIBUTED TO THE PENNATE DIATOM PSEUDONITZSCHIA AUSTRALIS 1
TLDR
This is the first confirmed report of DA poisoning since the original 1987 episode in Atlantic Canada caused by Nitzschia pungens Grunow forma multiseries Hasle, and suggests another species of planktonic pennate diatom is capable of producing DA and that herbivorous finfish can act as vectors for this toxin. Expand
Morphologic and cytochemical characteristics of blood cells from Hawaiian green turtles.
TLDR
The classification of green turtle blood cells clarifies improper nomenclature reported previously and provides a reference for future hematologic studies in this species. Expand

  • 12 June 2006
TLDR
This work provides a framework to systematically describe and name diseases in corals involving 4 steps: naming the disease, describing the lesion, formulating a morphologic diagnosis and (4) formulating an etiologic diagnosis. Expand
Quantitative analysis of herpesvirus sequences from normal tissue and fibropapillomas of marine turtles with real-time PCR.
TLDR
Although FPTHV pol sequences amplified from tumors are highly related to each other, single signature amino acid substitutions distinguish the Australia/Hawaii, Mexico/Costa Rica, and Florida/Caribbean groups. Expand
WEIGHTS, HEMATOLOGY, AND SERUM CHEMISTRY OF SEVEN SPECIES OF FREE-RANGING TROPICAL PELAGIC SEABIRDS
  • T. Work
  • Biology, Medicine
  • Journal of wildlife diseases
  • 1 October 1996
TLDR
Hematocrit, total plasma solids, total and differential white cell counts, serum glucose, calcium, phosphorus, uric acid, total protein, albumin, globulin, aspartate aminotransferase and creatinine phosphokinase were analyzed. Expand
Cause-specific temporal and spatial trends in green sea turtle strandings in the Hawaiian Archipelago (1982–2003)
TLDR
Despite exposure to disease and inshore fishing gears, the Hawaiian green turtle stock continues to recover following protection since the late 1970s, and measures to reduce incidental capture of sea turtles in coastal Hawaiian fisheries would be prudent, especially since strandings attributable to hook-and-line fishing gear have increased steadily since 1982. Expand
Global research priorities for sea turtles: informing management and conservation in the 21st century
Over the past 3 decades, the status of sea turtles and the need for their protection to aid population recovery have increasingly captured the interest of government agencies, non-governmentalExpand
Distribution and morphology of growth anomalies in Acropora from the Indo-Pacific.
TLDR
The evidence of GAs being true neoplasias (tumors) is mixed, so a cautionary approach is urged in use of morphologic terminology, and preliminary indices of their spatial patterns and progression within coral colonies are obtained. Expand
Relating Tumor Score to Hematology in Green Turtles with Fibropapillomatosis in Hawaii
TLDR
Tumor score can relate to physiologic status of green turtles afflicted with FP, and that tumor score is a useful field monitor of severity of FP in this species is indicated. Expand
