Mixotrophy, used herein for the combination of phototrophy and phagotrophy, is widespread among dinoflagellates. It occurs among most, perhaps all, of the extant orders, including the Prorocentrales, Dinophysiales. Gymnodiniales, Noctilucales, Gonyaulacales, Peridiniales, Blastodiniales. Phytodiniales, and Dinamoebales. Many cases of mixotrophy among dinoflagellates are probably undocumented. Primarily photosynthetic dinoflagellates with their “own” plastids can often supplement their nutrition… 
Formation of two types of cysts by a mixotrophic dinoflagellate, Pfiesteria piscicida
TLDR
The objectives of this study were to identify which life stages are likely to be present in a mixotrophic culture of ‘non-inducible’ P. piscicida and to deter-mine the morphological differences based on fluorescent stain uptake and to examine whichcombinations of adverse environmental factors (low light intensity and low prey concentrations) affect life stage transformations.
Putting the N in dinoflagellates
TLDR
This review will combine physiological, biochemical, and transcriptomic data to assess the mechanism and impact of nitrogen metabolism in dinoflagellates and to compare the dinof lagellate responses with those of diatoms.
Tertiary Plastid Endosymbioses in Dinoflagellates
TLDR
Details of the structures, evolutionary origins, and processes involved in these varied endosymbioses, including feeding mechanisms, endosYmbiotic gene transfer, and how nucleus-encoded proteins are targeted to each of these photosynthetic entities are discussed.
Roles of mixotrophy in blooms of different dinoflagellates: Implications from the growth experiment
TLDR
It is implicated that mixotrophy may play different roles in the growth and bloom of the four dinoflagellate species, and can be an important competitive strategy for K. mikimotoi.
Obligate mixotrophy of the pigmented dinoflagellate Polykrikos lebourae (Dinophyceae, Dinoflagellata)
TLDR
The results suggest that the benthic dinoflagellate P. lebourae is an obligate mixotroph, requiring both prey and light for sustained growth and survival.
The ecophysiology and bloom dynamics of Prymnesium spp.
TLDR
In this review, the cellular characteristics, life cycles, bloom formation, and factors affecting toxicity, allelopathy, phagotrophy, and osmot rophy of P. parvum are discussed.
Mixotrophy in the phototrophic dinoflagellate Takayama helix (family Kareniaceae): Predator of diverse toxic and harmful dinoflagellates.
TLDR
The results of the present study suggest that T. helix is aMixotrophic dinoflagellate that is able to feed on a diverse range of toxic species and, thus, its mixotrophic ability should be considered when studying red tide dynamics, food webs, and din oflageLLate evolution.
Feeding by the harmful phototrophic dinoflagellate Takayama tasmanica (Family Kareniaceae).
TLDR
This study reported for the first time that T. tasmanica is a mixotrophic species and it is likely that this species may have an ecological niche different from that of T. helix in marine ecosystems.
Mixotrophic haptophytes are key bacterial grazers in oligotrophic coastal waters
TLDR
Haptophytes were the most important mixotrophic group and have a key role as bacterivores in marine ecosystems, when considered alongside the widespread distribution of haptophytes in the ocean.
Feeding by phototrophic red-tide dinoflagellates: five species newly revealed and six species previ- ously known to be mixotrophic
TLDR
The results of the present study suggest that the algal predators sometimes have a potentially considerable grazing impact on populations of theAlgal prey.

Mixotrophy in the dinoflagellate Prorocentrum minimum
TLDR
Feeding is influenced by a complex of factors, but the spatial-temporal pattern of ingestion and the experiments both suggest that feeding is primarily a mechanism for obtaining inorganic nutrients rather than a mechanisms for supplementing carbon nutrition.
Phagotrophic Mechanisms and Prey Selection in Free‐living Dinoflagellates 1
TLDR
Three types of feeding mechanisms are known in dinoflagellates: pallium feeding, tube feeding, and direct engulfment, which allow the ingestion of relatively large prey or parts thereof.
Spatial and Temporal Aspects of Mixotrophy In Chesapeake Bay Dinoflagellates
TLDR
Examination of protargol‐stained specimens revealed that Gymnodinium sanguineum, Gyrodinium uncatenum, and Ceratium furca also feed heterotrophically as indicated by the presence of food vacuoles containing partially digested prey.
Role of chloroplast retention in a marine dinoflagellate
TLDR
The dinoflagellate Gymnodjnium 'gracjlenturn' feeds on the cryptophyte Rhodomonas salina and retains the chloroplasts of the prey as functional kleptochloroplasts, but becomes a mutotroph, acquiring a proportion of its organic carbon demand through photosynthesis, but the klethloroplast and their photosynthetic activity are lost within a few days.
Mixotrophic Protists in Marine and Freshwater Ecosystems
TLDR
Mixotrophic protists vary in their photosynthetic and ingestion capabilities, and thus, in the relative contribution of photosynthesis and phagotrophy to their nutrition, and may make a stronger link between the microbial and classic planktonic food webs by increasing trophic efficiency.
Induced phagotrophy in the photosynthetic dinoflagellate Heterocapsa triquetra
TLDR
Phagotrophy in H. triquetra may be important in maintaining the population in environments of low nutrient concentration and low light intensity and can be explained in terms of carbon from the ingestion of fluorescently labelled phytoplankton.
The Role of Mixotrophy in Pelagic Environments
TLDR
This paper reviews the occurrence and ecological importance of mixotrophic flagellates and ciliates in pelagic environments, particularly in marine ecosystems, and presents a hypothesis for a growth strategy of bacterivorous mixotroph flageLLates.
Grazing of the mixotrophic dinoflagellate Gymnodinium sanguineum on ciliate populations of Chesapeake Bay
In situ grazing rates for the mixotrophic dinoflagellate Gymnodinium sanguineum Hirasaka feeding on nanociliate populations of Chesapeake Bay were determined in June and October of 1990 using a “gut

Engulfment of ceratium spp. (dinophyceae) by the thecate photosynthetic dinoflagellate fragilidium subglobosum
TLDR
The marine thecate dinoflagellate Fragilidium subglobosum (von Stosch) Loeblich, previously believed to be an obligate phototroph, is shown to be mixotrophic, apparently feeding exclusively on Ceratium spp.
