Fukuyoa paulensis gen. et sp. nov., a New Genus for the Globular Species of the Dinoflagellate Gambierdiscus (Dinophyceae)
The morphological and molecular data in concert support the split of Gambierdiscus sensu lato into two genera, and the new genus name Fukuyoa contains the new species FukuyOA paulensis gen. et sp. Expand
Annual microplankton cycles in Villefranche Bay, Ligurian Sea, NW Mediterranean
This feature may determine the nature and the fate of primary production and the interannual variability in the relative importance of the microbial food web versus the microbial loop in the Bay of Villefranche. Expand
A quantitative review of the lifestyle, habitat and trophic diversity of dinoflagellates (Dinoflagellata, Alveolata)
The continental waters are highly dominated by plastid-containing species, while in marine environments there is a slight dominance of heterotrophic species (58%). Expand
Checklist of Mediterranean Free-living Dinoflagellates
Abstract An annotated checklist of the free-living dinoflagellates (Dinophyceae) of the Mediterranean Sea, based on literature records, is given. The distribution of 673 species in 9 MediterraneanExpand
Trends on the distribution of ciliates in the open
The distribution of planktonic ciliates, aloricate (naked) and loricate (tintinnid) was investigated in the open waters of the Oyashio and Kuroshio Currents, Philippine, Sulu, Celebes and South ChinaExpand
Database of diazotrophs in global ocean: abundance, biomass and nitrogen fixation rates
This database is limited spatially, lacking large regions of the ocean especially in the Indian Ocean, but can nevertheless be used to study spatial and temporal distributions and variations of marine N2 fixation, to validate geochemical estimates and to parameterize and validate biogeochemical models.

A list of free-living dinoflagellate species in the world’s oceans
A checklist of free-living marine dinoflagellates (Dinophyceae) is given. The nomenclature is brought up to date and synonyms are included. The spelling of several taxa is corrected according to theExpand
Distribution of the cyanobacterium Richelia intracellularis as an epiphyte of the diatom Chaetoceros compressus in the western Pacific Ocean
From ten cruises in the western Pacific Ocean, the Richelia-Chaetoceros consortia were exclusively observed in the peripheryofthegeographic proliferations of C. compressus and R. intracellularis as an endosymbiont in Rhizosolenia clevei. Expand
A checklist and classification of living dinoflagellates (Dinoflagellata, Alveolata)
At present, the most extended molecular markers are unable to elucidate the interrelations between the classical orders, and the available sequences of other markers are still insufficient, so the classification of the dinoflagellates remains unresolved, especially at the order level. Expand
Life cycle and molecular phylogeny of the dinoflagellates Chytriodinium and Dissodinium, ectoparasites of copepod eggs.
It is suggested that the morphology of the infective cell is probably the most reliable phenotypic characteristic to determine the systematic position of parasitic dinoflagellates and the type of life cycle is a poor criterion for classification at the family level. Expand
