associations in a coral reef-mangrove ecosystem: Pelican and associated cays, Belize.
Pre-glaciation sediment contained highly varied dinoflagellate
communities, with star-shaped morphologies.
The diatoms, which appear to thrive in the windier conditions, have increased in the last five years, while dinoflagellates
have "almost disappeared", Prof Hays said.
2007) points out that high concentration of dinoflagellates
can produce toxic substances which may cause harm to the cultivated animals or even to humans.
, small, ovoid topentagonalcell, plates thin, plate pattern: apical pore, pote plate, canal plate, 4', 2a, 7", C6, S5, 5"', 2"", most photosynthetic with yellow-gold plastids, cingulum is wide, sub-median and the hypotheca is smaller than the epitheca.
Species-specific physiological response of dinoflagellates

Burkholder JM, Glasgow HB Jr: Trophic controls on stage transformations of a toxic ambush-predator dinoflagellate
Prior to 1975, blooms of the dinoflagellate
Gonyaulax polyedra usually developed during the fall of the year.
Field research implicated the benthic dinoflagellate
Prorocentrum lima as the primary source in coastal Nova Scotia.
Pfiesteria piscicida (Pp) is an estuarine dinoflagellate
that has been associated with fish kill events in estuaries along the eastern seaboard and possibly with human health effects [1,2].
They said dinoflagellate
victims suffered "acute confusion, episodes of disorientation, new or increasing forgetfulness, or difficulties concentrating".
In the present experiment, the species studied was Alexamdrium minutum [TABULAR DATA FOR TABLE 1 OMITTED] (Halim) Balech, which is a haploid dinoflagellate
species that usually reproduces asexually, although under certain circumstances two cells can conjugate, thus producing a diploid zygote.
