Abstract Pyrodinium bahamense (var. compressum) has been the only dinoflagellate species that has caused major public health and economic problems in the Southeast Asian region for more than 2 decades now. It produces saxitoxin, a suite of toxins that cause Paralytic Shellfish Poisoning (PSP). A serious toxicological problem affecting many countries of the world, mild cases of this poisoning can occur within 30 minutes while in extreme cases, death through respiratory paralysis may occur within… 
ReCeNT BLooMING oF PYRODINIUM BAHAMENSE VAR. COMPRESSUM IN AMBoN BAY, eASTeRN INDoNeSIA
In Indonesia, Pyrodinium bahamense var. compressum was first recorded in Kao Bay in 1994. In 1996 the illness of more than 30 people and the death of 3 children after consuming shellfish from Ambon
Pyrodinium bahamense One the Most Significant Harmful Dinoflagellate in Mexico
TLDR
This mini-review ends with a viewpoint of management and research strategies to better understand the factors that play essential roles in the bloom dynamics and toxicity of this species.
Reconstruction of Pyrodinium blooms in the tropical East Pacific (Mexico): are they related to ENSO?
TLDR
It is reported that a sedimentary record of Pyrodinium cysts from the Gulf of Tehuantepec in the tropical East Pacific (Mexico), which spans from the 1860s, showed the continuous occurrence and that their presence has been declining in the last few decades.
Vertical distribution of Pyrodinium bahamense var. compressum (Dinophyceae) cysts in Ambon Bay and Hurun Bay, Indonesia
TLDR
It is considered that anthropogenic activities such as ballast water and transportation of shellfish seeds probably did not cause the introduction of Pbc in both bays, and the floral changes of dinoflagellate cysts in Ambon Bay and Hurun Bay, Indonesia are examined.
Seasonality and toxin production of Pyrodinium bahamense in a Red Sea lagoon.
PARALYTIC SHELLFISH TOXINS IN TROPICAL OCEANS
TLDR
The current understanding of PST transmission through tropical food webs is evaluated and the prevalence of PST intoxications in tropical regions and their social and economic costs are considered.
Sustainability Matters:Environmental and Climate Changes in the Asia-Pacific
Harmful algal blooms (HAB) are a yearly event in the waters of Manila Bay, Philippines. The very first major bloom was caused by a toxic dinoflagellate species, Pyrodinium bahamense var. compressum,

TLDR
Findings reveal that monitoring of mussel toxicity alone does not necessarily provide adequate warning of DA entering the food web at levels sufficient to harm marine wildlife and perhaps humans.

TLDR
The role of dissolved organic nitrogen in phytoplankton nutrition, cell biology and ecology, and the status of generic concepts in coralline algae (Rhodophyta) are reviewed.
