First successful culture of the marine dinoflagellate Dinophysis acuminata
The dinoflagellate genus Dinophysis in- cludes several species that cause diarrhetic shellfish poi- soning, none of which have yet been established in cul- ture. We report on the maintenance ofExpand

Parasites and Phytoplankton, with Special Emphasis on Dinoflagellate Infections1
Abstract Planktonic members of most algal groups are known to harbor intracellular symbionts, including viruses, bacteria, fungi, and protozoa. Among the dinoflagellates, viral and bacterialExpand

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

Mixotrophy in the Phototrophic Harmful Alga Cochlodinium polykrikoides (Dinophycean): Prey Species, the Effects of Prey Concentration, and Grazing Impact
Abstract We first reported here that the harmful alga Cochlodinium polykrikoides, which had been previously known as an autotrophic dinoflagellate, was a mixotrophic species. We investigated theExpand

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

Growth and grazing responses of the mixotrophic dinoflagellate Dinophysis acuminata as functions of light intensity and prey concentration
Dinophysis acuminata, a photosynthetic marine dinoflagellate, possesses plastids of cryptophyte origin and causes diarrhetic shellfish poisoning (DSP). Recent work has shown D. acumi- nata to be aExpand

To survive, the marine dinoflagellate Dinophysis caudata Saville‐Kent must feed on the plastidic ciliate Myrionecta rubra (=Mesodinium rubrum), itself a consumer of cryptophytes. Whether D. caudataExpand

Genetics and Morphology Characterize the Dinoflagellate Symbiodinium voratum, n. sp., (Dinophyceae) as the Sole Representative of Symbiodinium Clade E
Dinoflagellates in the genus Symbiodinium are ubiquitous in shallow marine habitats where they commonly exist in symbiosis with cnidarians. Attempts to culture them often retrieve isolates that mayExpand

Marivita cryptomonadis gen. nov., sp. nov. and Marivita litorea sp. nov., of the family Rhodobacteraceae, isolated from marine habitats.
Two strictly aerobic, Gram-negative, rod-shaped bacteria containing photosynthesis-related genes, designated strains CL-SK44(T) and CL-JM1(T), were isolated from a culture of the marine phytoplanktonExpand
