Sodium channel mutation leading to saxitoxin resistance in clams increases risk of PSP
Bivalve molluscs, the primary vectors of paralytic shellfish poisoning (PSP) in humans, show marked inter-species variation in their capacity to accumulate PSP toxins (PSTs) which has a neural basis.Expand

Recurrent and persistent brown tide blooms perturb coastal marine ecosystem
Throughout the summers of 1985 and 1986 a small (2–3 μm diameter), previously underscribed chrysophyte bloomed monospecifically (>109 cells 1−1) in Long Island embayments. The bloom colored the waterExpand
