Carbon (C) and nitrogen (N) content and growth/grazing characteristics of the hetero- trophic dinoflagellate Noctiluca scintillans were examined in laboratory cultures at 24°C. The C and N contents of N.scintillans per unit cell volume were 2.3 x 10~ 3 pg C unr3 and 4.1 X 10""4 pg N unr3, respectively. These values are almost two orders of magnitude lower than those reported for other protozoans such as ciliates and 'typical' heterotrophic dinoflagellates due to an extensive vacuole in the cell… CONTINUE READING
