Seasonal changes in the gonads of lamellibranchs such as oysters, clams and teridinids have been studied in detail by various workers, viz., Coe (1932 b and 1936), Coe and Turner (1938), Loosanoff (1937 b, 1942 and 1953), Galtsoff (1937), Orton (1933), Roughley (1933) and Quale (1943). In commercially important forms these stud.ies have been of immense value in their culture and management.of the natural environments
