[HQR15-P09] Evolution process of the oyster reef and the ecology in Sanzanze, northeast Tokyo bay
Keywords:Tokyo bay, Oyster reef, Evolution process
Oyster reefs, and also size and shape of individual oyster shells must be influenced by such environmental factors as nutrient salt, water temperature and habitat density in addition to weather condition, salinity, turbidity and so on (Chinzei, 1982, etc.).
In this study we investigate the relationship among changes in morphology through the growth of oyster reefs and individual shells, evolution process of the reefs and environmental factors in and around the reefs.
