  journal={Turkish Journal of Fisheries and Aquatic Sciences},
The spatial distribution of modern dinoflagellate cysts was studied, with the purpose of understanding the impact from industrial pollution and sediment characteristics. Eight surface sediment samples were collected to analysis of the spatial distribution of dinoflagellate cysts from two industrially polluted areas: Aliağa and Nemrut Bay (Eastern Mediterranean). A total of 42 dinoflagellate cyst morphotype were identified and total cyst abundance ranged between 11 and 2543 cyst g dry weight…

Natural radioactivity measurements and evaluation of radiological hazards in sediment of Aliağa Bay, İzmir (Turkey)
The activity concentration of natural 226 Ra, 232 Th, and 40 K radionuclides was examined in some selected locations in Aliaga Bay of Izmir district, Turkey. Sediment samples from 30 locations were


The impact of different pollution sources on modern dinoflagellate cysts in Sishili Bay, Yellow Sea, China
The spatial distribution of dinoflagellate cysts in the surface sediment of Sishili Bay, Yellow Sea, China, was studied, with the purpose of understanding the impact from nutrient enrichment and
Distribution of dinoflagellate cysts in recent sediments from Izmir Bay (Aegean Sea, Eastern Mediterranean)
Findings indicate potential seedbeds for initiation of future blooms and outbreaks of potentially toxic species in Izmir Bay, Aegean Sea, where higher cyst concentrations were observed.
Dinoflagellate cysts in recent estuarine sediments from aquaculture sites of southern South Korea
The Inner Buk Bay and the south-western sites of the MFRG were recognized to be subjected to eutrophication, as indicated by the elevated proportional increase in cysts of heterotrophic species of the genera Dubridinium, Polykrikos and Protoperidinium.
