The epi-benthic dinoflagellate Ostreopsis cf. ovata Fukuyo has an increasingly global distribution. In Brazil there are reports of O. cf. ovata along the coast from 8°S to 27°S latitude and blooms have been registered on the Rio de Janeiro coastline. In the current study, an O. cf. ovata bloom is reported at Saint Paul's Rocks (0°55'10″N; 29°20'33″W), between the southern and northern hemispheres. The Archipelago is not inhabited and not subjected to eutrophication, due to isolation, and… Expand

Ostreopsis cf. ovata Bloom in Currais, Brazil: Phylogeny, Toxin Profile and Contamination of Mussels and Marine Plastic Litter
TLDR
Ostreopsis cells attached to different plastic litter, indicating an alternate route for toxin transfer to marine fauna via ingestion of biofilm-coated plastic debris. Expand
A conceptual model of annual Ostreopsis cf. ovata blooms in the northern Adriatic Sea based on the synergic effects of hydrodynamics, temperature, and the N:P ratio of water column nutrients
TLDR
The net effect of the synergy between local hydrodynamic conditions, temperature, and N and P availability may help to explain why blooms in the northern Adriatic Sea occur differently from those in other Mediterranean regions. Expand
Ostreopsis cf. ovata from western Mediterranean Sea: Physiological responses under different temperature and salinity conditions.
TLDR
The physiological effects of changes in water temperature and salinity were analyzed and the results suggest that climate change may not affect intensity of blooms, but their toxicity may be enhanced. Expand
Morphometric analysis of Ostreopsis cf. ovata cells in relation to environmental conditions and bloom phases
TLDR
The morphometric analysis showed a marked variability in cell size, and a relationship between cell dimensions and bloom phases was shown: cells in the final phase had a significantly longer DV than those in both the initial and in the proliferation phases, suggesting that hydrodynamics affect abundances mainly during the proliferation bloom phase when the highest abundances are reached. Expand
Morphology and molecular characterization of the epiphytic benthic dinoflagellate Ostreopsis cf. ovata in the temperate waters off Jeju Island, Korea
TLDR
The morphology of the Korean strain of O. ovata isolated from the waters off Jeju Island, Korea, was similar to the original description, however, the cell length was 20–30% smaller than that of the Japanese strain and the cingulum was displaced and undulated in the ventral view. Expand
Ostreopsis cf. ovata (Dinophyceae) Molecular Phylogeny, Morphology, and Detection of Ovatoxins in Strains and Field Samples from Brazil
TLDR
Molecular analysis showed that six of the seven sequences grouped at the large “Atlantic/Mediterranean/Pacific” sub-clade, while one sequence branched in a sister clade with sequences from Madeira Island and Greece, and Morphometric analysis of different strains and field populations from diverse locations were compared. Expand
Genetic and toxinological characterization of North Atlantic strains of the dinoflagellate Ostreopsis and allelopathic interactions with toxic and non-toxic species from the genera Prorocentrum, Coolia and Gambierdiscus.
TLDR
The results suggest the existence of weak to moderate allelopathic interactions between the studied organisms, although the outcome is dependent on the species involved. Expand
Ostreospis cf. ovata blooms in coastal water: Italian guidelines to assess and manage the risk associated to bathing waters and recreational activities
Ostreopsis cf. ovata is a benthic marine dinoflagellate, which blooms in summer along the coasts of the Mediterranean Sea, including many Italian regions since early 1990s. In tropical areas O. cf.Expand
Investigation of phagotrophy in natural assemblages of the benthic dinoflagellates Ostreopsis, Prorocentrum and Coolia
TLDR
It was showed that phagotrophy was not a frequent nutritional strategy in benthic dinoflagellates during the study period, suggesting that these structures are not ingested prey. Expand
Chemical Ecology of the Benthic Dinoflagellate Genus Ostreopsis: Review of Progress and Future Directions
TLDR
This research is challenged by technical limitations to conduct ecologically realistic and harmonized studies where organisms can be in direct contact with Ostreopsis cells, their mucus and/or the released extracellular toxic compounds. Expand
