First Report of the Epiphytic Dinoflagellate Gambierdiscus caribaeus in the Temperate Waters off Jeju Island, Korea: Morphology and Molecular Characterization
TLDR
The occurrence of Gambierdiscus caribaeus isolated from the waters off Jeju Island in Korea is reported, for the first time, and its morphology was similar to that of the original Belize strains of G. carIBaeus. Expand
A hierarchy of conceptual models of red-tide generation: Nutrition, behavior, and biological interactions
TLDR
Mechanisms describing the outbreak, persistence, and decline of red tides were reviewed, the advantages and limitations of each mechanism were evaluated, and insights about the evolution of the mechanisms were developed. Expand
Mixotrophy in the newly described dinoflagellate Alexandrium pohangense: A specialist for feeding on the fast-swimming ichthyotoxic dinoflagellate Cochlodinium polykrikoides
TLDR
The newly described Alexandrium pohangense has an effective mechanism for feeding on fast-swimming prey through prey immobilization, and could have a considerable grazing impact on C. polykrikoides populations. Expand
Gambierdiscus jejuensis sp. nov., an epiphytic dinoflagellate from the waters of Jeju Island, Korea, effect of temperature on the growth, and its global distribution.
TLDR
The Korean isolates, isolated from coralline macroalgae collected from the coastal waters of Jeju Island, Korea, are proposed as a new species in the genus Gambierdiscus and named GambierDiscus jejuensis sp. Expand
Most Low-Abundance “Background” Symbiodinium spp. Are Transitory and Have Minimal Functional Significance for Symbiotic Corals
TLDR
It is concluded that only those species which can occur in high abundance and are temporally stable are ultimately important to coral-dinoflagellate mutualisms. Expand
Symbiodinium tridacnidorum sp. nov., a dinoflagellate common to Indo-Pacific giant clams, and a revised morphological description of Symbiodinium microadriaticum Freudenthal, emended Trench & Blank
TLDR
Fixed differences are found in nuclear (internal transcribed spacer (ITS) and large subunit rDNA), chloroplast (cp23S) and mitochondrial (cob) gene sequences from cultured and field-collected samples of Symbiodinium microadriaticum and Symbiod inium sp. Expand
Mixotrophic ability of the phototrophic dinoflagellates Alexandrium andersonii, A. affine, and A. fraterculus.
TLDR
The evidence suggests that the mixotrophic ability of A. andersonii should be taken into consideration in predicting the outbreak, persistence, and decline of its harmful algal blooms. Expand
Yihiella yeosuensis gen. et sp. nov. (suessiaceae, dinophyceae), a novel dinoflagellate isolated from the coastal waters of Korea
TLDR
The molecular phylogeny and sequence divergence based on SSU, and LSU rDNA indicate that the Korean dinoflagellate holds a taxonomically distinctive position and is considered to be a new species in a new genus in the family Suessiaceae, named Yihiella yeosuensis. Expand
Gymnodinium smaydae n. sp., a New Planktonic Phototrophic Dinoflagellate from the Coastal Waters of Western Korea: Morphology and Molecular Characterization
TLDR
This newly isolated dinoflagellate possessed nuclear chambers, nuclear fibrous connective, an apical groove running in a counterclockwise direction around the apex, and a major accessory pigment peridinin, which are four key features for the genus Gymnodinium. Expand
Molecular characterization and morphology of the photosynthetic dinoflagellate Bysmatrum caponii from two solar saltons in western Korea
TLDR
The results of the present study suggest that Bysmatrum spp. Expand
