Dinoflagellate taxonomy is based primarily on morphology and morphometric data that can be difficult to obtain. In contrast, molecular data can be rapidly and cost‐effectively acquired, which has led to a rapid accumulation of sequence data in GenBank. Currently there are no systematic criteria for utilizing taxonomically unassigned sequence data to identify putative species that could in turn serve as a basis for testable hypotheses concerning the taxonomy, diversity, distribution, and… Expand
Molecular species discovery in the diatom Sellaphora and its congruence with mating trials
TLDR
Investigation of the species limits of morphologically similar small-celled strains of the model diatom Sellaphora from the United Kingdom and Australia finds no simple metrics or presence/absence characters that could consistently separate all species of the auldreekie complex, even though some do differ in pole width or stria density. Expand
Mitochondrial, but not rDNA, genes fail to discriminate dinoflagellate species in the genus Ostreopsis
TLDR
It appears that rDNA gene sequences provide an effective molecular means of distinguishing the phylogenetic and phylogeographical relationships among Ostreopsis species. Expand
Evaluating the Ribosomal Internal Transcribed Spacer (ITS) as a Candidate Dinoflagellate Barcode Marker
TLDR
The Internal Transcribed Spacer units 1 and 2 of the rDNA operon were evaluated, as a high resolution marker for distinguishing species dinoflagellates in culture, and the ITS marker was successful in confirming species, revealing hidden diversity in culture collections. Expand
Are prorocentroid dinoflagellates monophyletic? A study of 25 species based on nuclear and mitochondrial genes.
TLDR
The phylogeny of this sub-class Prorocentrophycidae is re-investigated by culturing and sequencing new strains, comparing sequences from three genes, the mitochondrial cytochrome c oxidase subunit 1 (cox 1) and the nuclear large and small subunit rRNA (LSU and SSU) encoding genes, and reserving support to the monophyly of the group is given. Expand
Barcoding of diatoms: nuclear encoded ITS revisited.
TLDR
It is concluded that the proposed barcode represents a robust, economical, and rapid way to recognize and identify most species (when a reference sequence is available) that is as good as or better than other molecular markers thus far proposed. Expand
Integrated study of dinoflagellate diversity in the Gulf of Naples
Dinoflagellates are a diverse lineage of protists known as an essential component of marine planktonic communities. To study their seasonal diversity at the LTER-MC station in the Gulf of Naples, IExpand
Recent evolutionary diversification of a protist lineage.
TLDR
It is concluded that the studied dinoflagellates belong to a lineage which has diversified recently and spread, sometimes over long distances, across low-temperature environments which differ markedly in ecology (marine versus lacustrine communities) and salinity. Expand
High-Level Diversity of Dinoflagellates in the Natural Environment, Revealed by Assessment of Mitochondrial cox1 and cob Genes for Dinoflagellate DNA Barcoding
TLDR
It is demonstrated that this 385-bp cob fragment is promising for lineage-wise dinoflagellate species identification, given an adequate database. Expand
DISCRIMINATIVE POWER OF NUCLEAR rDNA SEQUENCES FOR THE DNA TAXONOMY OF THE DINOFLAGELLATE GENUS PERIDINIUM (DINOPHYCEAE) 1
TLDR
18S and 28S rDNA D1/D2 sequences are informative about relationships among Peridinium species, suggesting that the former as DNA markers may be more suitable for sequence‐based delimitation of Perid inium. Expand
Phylogenetic Relationships of Yessotoxin-Producing Dinoflagellates, Based on the Large Subunit and Internal Transcribed Spacer Ribosomal DNA Domains
TLDR
It is indicated that Gonyaulacoloid dinoflagellate species are the most likely to produce YTX and thus should be prioritized for YTX screening during events. Expand

Molecular data and the evolutionary history of dinoflagellates
TLDR
Phylogenetic trees obtained from dinoflagellate SSU rRNA genes are generally poorly resolved, but include by far the most species and some well-supported clades, as is Gonyaulacales, although with more modest support. Expand

TLDR
The coupled morphological and molecular approach supports the taxonomic value of some of the characters of the planktonic stage, such as the cingular plate number, but questions the validity of other morphological characters of both vegetative and encysted stages. Expand
