To investigate the roles of the newly described thecate heterotrophic dinoflagellate Stoeckeria algicida (GenBank accession number = AJ841809), which was abundant during the red tides dominated by the harmful raphidophyte Heterosigma akashiwo, we measured the abundances of H. akashiwo and S. algicida in Masan Bay, Korea, from May to July 2004. We also measured growth and ingestion rates of S. algicida when feeding on H. akashiwo in the laboratory. Grazing coefficients were calculated by…

Feeding by protists and copepods on the heterotrophic dinoflagellates Pfiesteria piscicida, Stoeckeria algicida, and Luciella masanensis
TLDR
To investigate interactions between the heterotrophic dinoflagellates Pfiesteria pisci- cida, Stoeckeria algicida, and Luciella masanensis and their protozoan and metazoan predators, it is important to distinguish between predation by protists and by copepods.
Feeding by heterotrophic dinoflagellates on the common marine heterotrophic nanoflagellate Cafeteria sp.
TLDR
The results of the present study suggest that O. marina and G. guttula and L. masanensis were able to ingest Cafeteria sp.

The Newly Described Heterotrophic Dinoflagellate Gyrodinium moestrupii, an Effective Protistan Grazer of Toxic Dinoflagellates
TLDR
The feeding ecology of the newly described heterotrophic dinoflagellate Gyrodinium moestrupii when it fed on toxic strains of Alexandrium minutum, Alexandrium tamarense, and Karenia brevis and on nontoxic strains of A. tamarenne, Prorocentrum minimum, and Scrippsiella trochoidea is explored.
Feeding by the Newly Described, Nematocyst‐Bearing Heterotrophic Dinoflagellate Gyrodiniellum shiwhaense
TLDR
The feeding ecology of the newly described, nematocyst‐bearing heterotrophic dinoflagellate Gyrodiniellum shiwhaense is explored and results suggest that G. shi Whaense can have a considerable grazing impact on algal populations.
Feeding and Grazing Impact by Small Marine Heterotrophic Dinoflagellates on Heterotrophic Bacteria
TLDR
The results of the present study suggest that some HTDs may sometimes have a considerable grazing impact on populations of marine bacteria, and that bacteria may be important prey.
Feeding by the Pfiesteria‐Like Heterotrophic Dinoflagellate Luciella masanensis

TLDR
Perch blood cells were observed to be the optimal prey for L. masanensis, and these three dinoflagellates may occupy different ecological niches in marine planktonic communities, even though they have a similar size and shape and the same feeding mechanisms.

Feeding by the Heterotrophic Dinoflagellate Oxyrrhis marina on the Red-Tide Raphidophyte Heterosigma akashiwo: a Potential Biological Method to Control Red Tides Using Mass-Cultured Grazers
TLDR
Calculated grazing impact by O. marina cultured on a large scale could be used for controlling red tides by H. akashiwo near aquaculture farms that are located in small ponds, lagoons, semi-enclosed bays, and large land-aqua tanks to which fresh seawater should be frequently supplied.
Growth and grazing rates of the prostomatid ciliate Tiarina fusus on red-tide and toxic algae
TLDR
The growth and grazing rates of the prostomatid ciliate Tiarina fusus when feeding on several species of red-tide and/or toxic algae (RTA) and laboratory data on ingestion rates obtained in the present study suggest that T. fusUS sometimes has a considerable grazing impact on the populations of H. akashiwo.
Feeding by the heterotrophic dinoflagellates Gyrodinium dominans and G. spirale on the red-tide dinoflagellate Prorocentrum minimum
TLDR
The results of the present study suggest that G. dominans and/or G. spirale sometimes have considerable grazing impacts on populations of P. minimum and are the most effective zooplanktonic grazers on the prey.
Feeding by the heterotrophic dinoflagellate Protoperidinium bipes on the diatom Skeletonema costatum
TLDR
The results of the present study suggest that P. bipes sometimes has a role as a grazer in the population dynamics of diatoms, and its growth and ingestion rates when feeding on the common diatom Skeletonema costatum are sometimes high.
Toxic and noxious phytoplankton in Big Glory Bay, Stewart Island, New Zealand

  • 2004
TLDR
Important year to year differences in the summer phytoplankton (diatom versus flagellate dominated populations) were apparent and analysis of climate data showed that these differences related to different weather conditions prevailing during the two summer periods sampled.
Microzooplankton grazing on Prorocentrum minimum and Karlodinium micrum in Chesapeake Bay
TLDR
Grazing on P. minimum and K. micrum was highest between lower oligohaline to midmesohaline regions of the open bay, where microzooplankton biomass was greatest, and these assemblages were dominated by heterotrophic dinoflagellates.
Quantitative importance and trophic role of heterotrophic dinoflagellates in a coastal pelagial food web
TLDR
Observations on the feeding mechanisms of the most abundant heterotrophic dinoflagellates revealed species which engulf prey duectly as well as species which feed with a peduncle and a pallium mechanisms all allow the ingestion of large prey.
Growth and grazing of a naked heterotrophic dinoflagellate, Gyrodinium dominans
TLDR
Growth and grazing rates of a naked heterotrophic dinoflagellate, Gyrodinium dominans, were examined in batch cultures and both strains grew well when fed amorphous materials and plankton species with ESD of 15 to 26 μm.

TLDR
It is suggested that this planktonic dinoflagellate Stoeckeria algicida is a new species in a new genus based on morphological and genealogical analyses.
