Grazing activity of Pfiesteria piscicida (Dinophyceae) and susceptibility to ciliate predation vary with toxicity status
Variability has been reported in the toxicity potential of Pfiesteria piscicida that is partly a function of the history of exposure to live fish. Grazing properties of P. piscicida and itsExpand
