Growth, feeding and ecological roles of the mixotrophic and heterotrophic dinoflagellates in marine planktonic food webs
Planktonic mixotrophic and heterotrophic dinoflagellates are ubiquitous protists and often abundant in marine environments. Recently many phototrophic dinoflagellate species have been revealed to beExpand

Feeding by red-tide dinoflagellates on the cyanobacterium Synechococcus
We investigated the feeding by 18 red-tide dinoflagellate species on the cyanobacterium Synechococcus sp. We also calculated grazing coefficients by combining the field data on abundances of theExpand

Feeding by phototrophic red-tide dinoflagellates: five species newly revealed and six species previ- ously known to be mixotrophic
We report here for the first time that 5 red-tide dinoflagellates (Gymnodinium catenatum, G. impudicum, Lingulodinium polyedrum, Prorocentrum donghaiense, and P. triestinum) which had been previouslyExpand

Ingestion of cryptophyte cells by the marine photosynthetic ciliate Mesodinium rubrum
We investigated the mechanism of capturing and ingesting cryptophyte cells by a labo- ratory strain of the marine photosynthetic ciliate Mesodinium rubrum Lohmann 1908 (= Myrionecta rubra JankowskiExpand

Increasing N Abundance in the Northwestern Pacific Ocean Due to Atmospheric Nitrogen Deposition
Nitrogen deposition from the atmosphere has altered the nitrate:phosphorus ratio in the marginal seas of the northwestern Pacific Ocean. The relative abundance of nitrate (N) over phosphorus (P) hasExpand

Feeding by the heterotrophic dinoflagellates Gyrodinium dominans and G. spirale on the red-tide dinoflagellate Prorocentrum minimum
To investigate the roles of Gyrodinium dominans and G. spirale, which have been reported to be abundant heterotrophic dinoflagellates in many coastal waters at different stages of red tides dominatedExpand
