Benthic dinoflagellates of the toxigenic genus Coolia Meunier (Dinophyceae) are known to have a global distribution in both tropical and temperate waters. The type species, C. monotis, has been reported from the Mediterranean Sea, the NE Atlantic and from Rhode Island, USA in the NW Atlantic, whereas other species in the genus have been reported from tropical locations. Coolia cells were observed in algal drift samples collected at seven sites in Nova Scotia, Canada. Clonal isolates were… Expand
Characterization of Coolia spp. (Gonyaucales, Dinophyceae) from Southern Tunisia: first record of Coolia malayensis in the Mediterranean Sea
This study provides the first report of the presence of Coolia malayensis in the Mediterranean Sea, co-occurring with C. monotis. Isolated strains from the Gulf of Gabès, Tunisia (South-easternExpand
The effect of temperature on physiology, toxicity and toxin content of the benthic dinoflagellate Coolia malayensis from a seasonal tropical region.
TLDR
Temperature had significant effects on the physiological activities and toxicity of C. malayensis after exposure to a range of seven different temperatures, including growth, toxicity and toxin content (putative analogues of okadaic acid and azaspiracids). Expand
Morphology and molecular phylogeny of three species of Coolia (Dinophyceae) from Hainan Island, South China Sea
TLDR
The study reveals the morphological and genetic diversity of Coolia species from Hainan Island, South China Sea, which provides a detailed understanding ofcoolia species of this area. Expand
Hemolysis associated toxicities of benthic dinoflagellates from Hong Kong waters.
TLDR
New information on the hemolysis associated toxicities of local toxic benthic dinoflagellates is provided, which contributes to better understanding of their emerging threats to marine fauna and reef systems in Hong Kong. Expand
A long-term study on Coolia monotis distribution from the south-east Mediterranean Sea
Abstract The potentially toxic species Coolia monotis is widespread along the Mediterranean coasts. The Gulf of Gabes is one of the affected areas in the south-eastern part of the Mediterranean Sea.Expand
Morphology and molecular phylogeny of Coolia tropicalis, Coolia malayensis and a new lineage of the Coolia canariensis species complex (Dinophyceae) isolated from Brazil
TLDR
The morphology and molecular phylogenetic relationships of Coolia species isolated from Brazil, including C. malayensis, C. tropicalis and a new lineage of the Coolia canariensis complex, are presented and support the existence of three cryptic species. Expand
Three decades of Canadian marine harmful algal events: Phytoplankton and phycotoxins of concern to human and ecosystem health.
TLDR
The results suggest that these taxa may be more widespread than previously thought in the Canadian Arctic and the emerging importance of climate change and increased vessel traffic in the Arctic was compiled from relevant literature and data. Expand
Structure Elucidation and Relative Toxicity of (24 R)-24-Hydroxyyessotoxin from a Namibian Isolate of Gonyaulax spinifera.
TLDR
Liquid chromatography-high-resolution mass spectrometry analysis of a Namibian strain of Gonyaulax spinifera showed the presence of a number of yessotoxins, and a tentative hydroxylated analogue that did not correspond to any previously confirmed YTX structures demonstrated reduced toxicity compared to YTX. Expand
Mitochondrial impairment and cytotoxicity effects induced by the marine epibenthic dinoflagellate Coolia malayensis.
TLDR
C. malayensis extract significantly depressed the oxidative phosphorylation efficiency, as was inferred from the perturbations in ΔΨm and in the phosphorylative cycle induced by ADP and increased susceptibility to Ca2+-induced MPT. Expand

Toxicity and Growth Assessments of Three Thermophilic Benthic Dinoflagellates (Ostreopsis cf. ovata, Prorocentrum lima and Coolia monotis) Developing in the Southern Mediterranean Basin
TLDR
Three thermophilic benthic dinoflagellates (Ostreopsis cf. ovata, Prorocentrum lima and Coolia monotis) were isolated from Bizerte Bay and monoclonal cultures established and ribotyping confirmed the morphological identification of the three species. Expand
Relationship between strains of Coolia monotis (Dinophyceae) from the Atlantic Iberian Peninsula and their sampling sites
TLDR
Strains of Coolia monotis from three locations of the Atlantic Iberian Peninsula were studied to undercover possible geographic preferences in their photophysiology, and demonstrated that strains responded differently to treatments, even though were genetically identical at the 28S/ITS-levels.

Epiphytic dinoflagellates in sub-tropical New Zealand, in particular the genus Coolia Meunier
Abstract Macroalgae growing in New Zealand's sub-tropical waters were sampled for epiphytic microalgae, in particular dinoflagellates. Four new Coolia isolates collected from sites throughoutExpand
Autecology and phylogeny of Coolia tropicalis and Coolia malayensis (Dinophyceae), with emphasis on taxonomy of C. tropicalis based on light microscopy, scanning electron microscopy and LSU rDNA1
TLDR
Based on both morphology and phylogenetic analysis using LSU D1‐ D3 rDNA sequences, the clones of C. tropicalis from Malaysia, Indonesia, and Belize were found to form a monophyletic clade within the genus and the strain producing cooliatoxin was found to be C. Tropicalis, not Coolia monotis as originally assumed. Expand

TLDR
The results highlight the importance to monitoring the presence of these dinoflagellates whose effects may also be reflected on the early life stages of marine organisms, especially those species that are important from both an ecological and economic point of view, as the sea urchins are. Expand
Morphology, phylogeny and novel chemical compounds from Coolia malayensis (Dinophyceae) from Okinawa, Japan
TLDR
The five compounds in the C. malayensis from Okinawa are composed of less oxygen, compared to cooliatoxin and other analogs of yessotoxin, suggesting the metabolites produced by C.malayensis are unique to those previously reported from other strains of Coolia. Expand
