Wounds caused by objects penetrating the skin.
Misunderstanding among individuals, frequently research subjects, of scientific methods such as randomization and placebo controls.
A dinoflagellate with a life cycle that includes numerous flagellated, amoeboid, and encysted stages. Both the flagellated and amoeboid forms produce toxins which cause open wounds on fish. Pfiesteria piscicida feeds on tissue sloughed from these wounds, as well as on bacteria and algae. It is found in Atlantic estuaries of the United States.
