Prorocentrum minimum bloom and its possible link to a massive fish kill in Bolinao, Pangasinan, Northern Philippines
For the first time, a Prorocentrum minimum bloom at a maximum cell density of 4.7 × 105 cells/L was recorded on January 31 to February 4, 2002 at Bolinao, Pangasinan, Northern Philippines whereExpand
Is Karenia a synonym of Asterodinium-Brachidinium (Gymnodiniales, Dinophyceae)?
From material collected in open waters of the NW and Equatorial Pacific Ocean the detailed morphology of brachidiniaceans based on two specimens of Asterodinium gracile is reported for the firstExpand
Re-examination of cyst–motile relationships of Polykrikos kofoidii Chatton and Polykrikos schwartzii Bütschli (Gymnodiniales, Dinophyceae)
We have re-examined the cyst–motile relationships of two Polykrikos species; P. schwartzii and P. kofoidii (Dinophyceae), based on the literature, incubation experiments, and molecular phylogeneticExpand
Application of a two‐compartment one‐toxin model to predict the toxin accumulation in Pacific oysters in Hiroshima Bay, Japan
:  A two-compartment one-toxin model was fitted to data of the toxin level of Pacific oysters contaminated by Alexandrium tamarense in Hiroshima Bay, Japan. The model contained state variables forExpand
PSP-toxicification of the carnivorous gastropod Rapana venosa inhabiting the estuary of Nikoh River, Hiroshima Bay, Hiroshima Prefecture, Japan.
During surveillance on the toxicity of invertebrates such as bivalves inhabiting the coasts of Hiroshima Bay in 2001 and 2002, the carnivorous gastropod rapa whelk Rapana venosa collected in theExpand
Karenia digitata sp. nov. (Gymnodiniales, Dinophyceae), a new harmful algal bloom species from the coastal waters of west Japan and Hong Kong
Abstract A new unarmoured dinoflagellate, Karenia digitata Yang, Takayama, Matsuoka & Hodgkiss sp. nov., is described on the basis of light and electron microscopy. It has bloomed in Hong Kong andExpand
Morphology of Polykrikos kofoidii and P. schwartzii (Dinophyceae, Polykrikaceae) cysts obtained in culture
Abstract We induced encystment in Polykrikos kofoidii and P. schwartzii under laboratory conditions by repeated starvation and feeding of strains previously maintained on a prey culture ofExpand
Heterocapsa lanceolata sp. nov. and Heterocapsa horiguchii sp. nov. (Peridiniales, Dinophyceae), two new marine dinoflagellates from coastal Japan
Abstract Heterocapsa lanceolata Iwataki & Fukuyo sp. nov. and H. horiguchii Iwataki, Takayama & Matsuoka sp. nov. are described from the coastal waters of Japan using light, fluorescence and electronExpand
Dinoflagellate Alexandrium tamarense as the source of paralytic shellfish poison (PSP) contained in bivalves from Hiroshima Bay, Hiroshima Prefecture, Japan.
In April 1993, a phytoplankton dinoflagellate was isolated from Hiroshima Bay, Hiroshima Prefecture, Japan, and unambiguously identified as Alexandrium tamarense on the basis of the morphologicalExpand
Balechina and the new genus Cucumeridinium gen. nov. (Dinophyceae), unarmored dinoflagellates with thick cell coverings
The genus Balechina (=subgenus Pachydinium) was established for heterotrophic gymnodinioid dinoflagellates with a thick cell covering. The type species, B. pachydermata (=Gymnodinium pachyderm‐atum),Expand
