Thick‐walled, nonmotile cysts (termed hypnocysts) of two dinoflagellates were isolated from estuarine sediments in Cape Cod, Massachusetts, and germinated to produce their respective motile, thecate stages. Hypnocysts from Orleans district were identified as Gonyaulax excuvata (Braarud) Balech sensu Loeblich & Loeblich. Visually identical hypnocysts from Falmouth district were provisionally identified as Gonyaulax tamarensis Lebour. Both species were toxic. A geographic survey in September… Expand
Dinoflagellate resting cysts as factors in phytoplankton ecology of the North Sea

TLDR
The wide distribution of living and empty cysts of Scrippsiella lachrymosa suggests that its motile form, which has not been officially recorded in the area until now, is a common plankton organism in German coastal waters. Expand
EFFECTS OF TEMPERATURE CONDITIONING ON DEVELOPMENT AND GERMINATION OF GONYAULAX TAMARENSIS (DINOPHYCEAE) HYPNOZYGOTES 1
TLDR
Cysts formed during the late spring in temperate waters are capable of excystment several months later as fall temperatures decrease; those formed in the fall take longer to mature, but are viable after six months of overwintering. Expand
Mating interactions of the harmful dinoflagellate alexandrium tamarense from UK coastal waters
TLDR
This study provides further insight into the mating interactions between toxic Group I and non-toxic Group III isolates primarily from UK coastal waters and suggests that Group I isolates are more likely to out-breed with a compatible Group III isolate. Expand
Dinoflagellate Cysts in Recent Marine Sediments from Tasmania, Australia
TLDR
While Tasmanian dinoflagellate cyst assemblages resemble those of New South Wales, Australia, and New Zealand, one notable difference is the cyst of the toxic Gymnodinium catenatum which appears to be confined to south-eastern Tasmania. Expand
The seeding of two red tide blooms by the germination of benthic Gonyaulax tamarensis hypnocysts
TLDR
Data are presented that suggest that the extreme localization of the blooms within the salt pond was due to limited tidal advection of the motile population and the favourable trace metal chemistry of the estuarine environment compared to the adjacent coastal waters. Expand
Spatial distribution of dinoflagellate resting cysts in Recent sediments of Kiel Bight, Germany (Baltic Sea)
TLDR
Micro-reticulate resting cysts of the toxic, unarmoured Gymnodinium catenatum, whose motile cell has not been recorded in Northern European waters, are reported for the first time from Recent sediments of the Baltic Sea. Expand
Dinoflagellate resting cysts isolated from sediments in Marlborough Sounds, New Zealand
TLDR
Seventeen species of dinoflagellate resting cysts have been recorded for the first time in New Zealand and these areas may be more likely to harbour toxic species causing paralytic shellfish poisoning (PSP) or diarrhetic shell fish poisoning (DSP) if these were to appear in the future. Expand
Distribution of resting cysts of the potentially toxic dinoflagellate Alexandrium pseudogonyaulax in recently-deposited sediment within Bizerte Lagoon (Mediterranean coast, Tunisia).
TLDR
It is shown that this dinoflagellate produces two types of resting cysts, which could be distinguished by the presence or the absence of a paratabulate wall, which are related to hydrodynamic factors in Bizerte lagoon. Expand
Promotion of cyst formation in the toxic dinoflagellate Alexandrium (Dinophyceae) by natural bacterial assemblages from Hiroshima Bay, Japan
TLDR
A clear positive correlation between the abundance of A. tamarense and Alex-CFPB during blooms is shown, which suggests that Alex- CFPB play a significant role in the process of encystment and bloom dynamics of Alexandrium in the field. Expand
The cysts ofCeratium hirundinella: Their dynamics and role within a eutrophic (Lake Sempach, Switzerland)
TLDR
The dynamics of the Ceratium hirundinella population and the abundance of dinocysts in the plankton and sediments were studied in Lake Sempach in 1988 and the rate of survival of theCeratium cysts appears to be lower than that of Peridinium Cysts, which have an impact on the ecosystem as carriers of nutrients.

Cysts of the toxic red-tide dinoflagellate Gonyaulax excavata (Braarud) Balech from Oslofjorden, Norway
TLDR
Resting cyst morphology suggests a possible systematic relationship between G. excavata and Pyrophacus horologium, and cultured motile cells were toxic to mice, bioluminescent, and consistently lacking ventral pores, in accordance with recent suggestions that these are specific criteria. Expand

TLDR
The type illustrations of the dinoflagellate Gonyaulax tamarensis contain an apparent reversal of the epithecal plates, which have led a recent author to doubt the appropriateness of the allocation of toxic populations in the North Atlantic to this species or a variety of it. Expand
THE “HYSTRICHOSPHAERID” RESTING SPORE OF THE DINOFLAGELLATE PYRODINIUM BAHAMENSE, PLATF, 1906 2

Growth and Toxicity of a Marine Dinoflagellate, Gonyaulax tamarensis
TLDR
Although low salinity and high temperature promoted growth in cultures, salinity appears to be a more important ecological factor than temperature in controlling the summer abundance of this dinoflagellate in nature. Expand
Modern dinoflagellate cysts and evolution of the Peridiniales
TLDR
It is concluded that modern resting cysts of thecate din oflagellates are homologous with some fossil dinoflages and hystrichospheres and systematic morphological fluctuations follow patterns already known; and relations reflect evolution of the Peridiniales. Expand

TLDR
It is concluded that Quaternary calciodinellids are peridinioid resting cysts having apical archeopyles and are produced by a small monophyletic group of dinoflagellates with the unique capability of primary calcification. Expand
