The spatial distribution of dinoflagellate cysts was studied to understand the impact of industrial pollution on the surface sediment of Izmir Bay, Turkey. Forty two dinoflagellate cyst morphotypes belonging to 12 genera were identified and qualified at 12 sampling points. The cyst of Gymnodinium nolleri dominated the bay and had the highest abundance in most of the stations, following Spiniferites bulloideus and Lingulodinium machaerophorum. The highest cyst concentration was recorded in the… 
Dinoflagellate cyst distribution in surface sediments of Ambon Bay (eastern Indonesia): Environmental conditions and harmful blooms.
TLDR
Dinocyst species were identified, and high dinocyst concentrations were found in the inner bay, and Cysts may serve as seedbanks for Pyrodinium bahamense blooms in the area.
Impacts of metal contamination and eutrophication on dinoflagellate cyst assemblages along the Guangdong coast of southern China.
TLDR
Both biogenic elements and metals were higher in the Mid Coast and lower in the Western Coast, and cysts of Scrippsiella indicated eutrophication, and Alexandrium and Diplopsalis cysts were sensitive toMetal contamination; however, Gyrodinium, Pheopolykrikos, and Lingulodinium cysts had high resistance to metal contamination.
Dinoflagellates encystment with emphasis on blooms in Boughrara Lagoon (South-Western Mediterranean): Combined effects of trace metal concentration and environmental context
TLDR
The dominance of potentially toxic species cysts highlights the necessity of monitoring these forms suspected to constitute the precursor of toxic blooms in this area, and is considered among the environmental factors most affecting RC distribution.
Do the levels of industrial pollutants influence the distribution and abundance of dinoflagellate cysts in the recently-deposited sediment of a Mediterranean coastal ecosystem?
TLDR
The results suggest that the degree of heavy metal pollution could influence cyst accumulation patterns, and that the highest abundance of cysts corresponds to stations presenting the higher amounts of heavy metals.
Dinoflagellate resting cysts from surface sediments of the Adriatic Ports: Distribution and potential spreading patterns.
TLDR
The ability of microalgae to preserve viable in coastal sediments as resting forms provides a reservoir of biodiversity and a useful tool to determine species spreadings, and the entering in to force of the ballast waters management regulations should enhance prospects to minimize future harmful impacts.
Spatial distribution of dinoflagellates from the tropical coastal waters of the South Andaman, India: Implications for coastal pollution monitoring.
TLDR
The dominance of autotrophs and Gonyaulacoid cysts at the North Bay highlight low nutrient conditions with less anthropogenic pressure and increasing coastal pollution could support their candidature towards the future HABs initiation and development.
Active and resting microbenthos in differently contaminated marine coastal areas: insights from the Gulf of Trieste (northern Adriatic, Mediterranean Sea)
TLDR
The analysis of similarity applied to both active and resting communities significantly separated the most contaminated stations from the other ones, and the photosynthetic capability of active microbenthos did not seem to be affected by contamination.
Plankton resting stages in recent sediments of Haifa port, Israel (Eastern Mediterranean) - Distribution, viability and potential environmental consequences.
TLDR
A remarkably high diversity coupled with low density and the highest number of oligotrich ciliate cyst types recorded from marine sediments is revealed.
Influence of environmental factors on spatial–temporal distribution patterns of dinoflagellate cyst communities in the South China Sea
TLDR
The newly developed high-throughput sequencing-based metabarcoding to characterize dinocyst communities collected from the South China Sea clarified the spatial–temporal distribution patterns and analyzed the correlation between environmental factors and the observed patterns to investigate how they are influenced by environmental factors.
Dinoflagellate planktonic-motile-stage and benthic-cyst assemblages from a monsoon-influenced tropical harbour: Elucidating the role of environmental conditions
TLDR
The population dynamics of dinoflagellates from monsoon-influenced Cochin-harbour, southwest coast of India was investigated and autotrophic-cysts dominance illustrates that the heterotrophs need not be dominant in the eutrophic-system as reported in earlier studies.

Evaluations of heavy metal pollution in sediment and Mullus barbatus from the Izmir Bay (Eastern Aegean) during 1997-2009.
TLDR
Maximum metal enrichment was found for Hg in the outer bay, while Pb indicated maximum enrichment in the middle-inner bays, while the levels of fish tissues were lower than the results reported from polluted areas of the Mediterranean.
Dinoflagellate cyst records and human disturbance in two neighboring estuaries, New Bedford Harbor and Apponagansett Bay, Massachusetts (USA).
TLDR
The decline of species richness and the large fluctuations in the total cyst abundances signal the intensified anthropogenic disturbance in the watershed, notably a high degree of eutrophication and toxic pollution.
