Unreported aspects in the sexual cycle of the marine dinoflagellate Lingulodinium polyedrum (Stein) Dodge were described. Our observations included the description of two types of hypnozygote formation, because culture planozygotes were observed to encyst in two different ways: an ecdysal sexual stage or a spiny resting cyst. Phosphate deficiency was the main nutritional condition required for fusing gamete pairs to form resting cysts, whereas replete conditions prevented their appearance and… Expand
NUCLEAR FEATURES AND EFFECT OF NUTRIENTS ON GYMNODINIUM CATENATUM (DINOPHYCEAE) SEXUAL STAGES 1
TLDR
The nuclear development of the cells during the sexual cycle and the effect of different nitrate and phosphate external levels on sexual stages were studied and suggested an uncoordinated meiosis in both encysting and non‐encysting zygotes. Expand
The significance of sexual versus asexual cyst formation in the life cycle of the noxious dinoflagellate Alexandrium peruvianum
TLDR
Sexuality was confirmed by the presence of fusing gamete pairs and longitudinally biflagellated planozygotes after outcrossing of compatible clonal strains, and the clonal cultures had low levels of self-compatibility. Expand
The life history of the toxic marine dinoflagellate Protoceratium reticulatum (Gonyaulacales) in culture.
TLDR
Asexual and sexual life cycle events were studied in cultures of the toxic marine dinoflagellate Protoceratium reticulatum by examining the mating type as well as the morphology of the sexual stages and nuclei. Expand
MULTIPLE ROUTES OF SEXUALITY IN ALEXANDRIUM TAYLORI (DINOPHYCEAE) IN CULTURE 1
TLDR
A flow cytometry analysis showed that sexual induction and zygote formation were very fast and highly common processes, zygotes being nearly half of the population at days 3 and 5 after the induction of sexuality in the cultures. Expand
Revision of the life cycle of the harmful dinoflagellate Margalefidinium polykrikoides (Gymnodiniales, Dinophyceae) based on isolates from Korean coastal waters
TLDR
The resting cyst of M. polykrikoides had a distinct germination process, and asexual and sexual life stages, and the mating behavior of the vegetative cells using a microscope equipped with high-resolution time-lapse digital camera. Expand
Sexual processes and life cycle transitions of the tropical Pacific Alexandrium minutum (Dinophyceae)
Resting cysts of harmful marine dinoflagellates, including Alexandrium species, play an important role in their bloom dynamics, where massive cyst germination is regarded as the natural phenomenonExpand
New life-cycle stages of Gymnodinium catenatum (Dinophyceae): laboratory and field observations
TLDR
The lack of a dormancy period in the sexual resting stage indicated that the advection of off- shore populations shoreward, rather than 'seed beds', is the main mechanism explaining G. catena- tum bloom formation in the Galician rias. Expand
Life cycle stages and evidence of sexual reproduction in the marine dinoflagellate Prorocentrum minimum (Dinophyceae, Prorocentrales).
TLDR
The life cycle of P. minimum was investigated and sexual reproduction in culture was described for the first time, and changes in the DNA content were confirmed by quantitative image cytometry. Expand
Life cycle stages of the benthic palytoxin-producing dinoflagellate, Ostreopsis cf. ovata (Dinophyceae)
TLDR
The results suggest that cysts embedded in abundant mucilage in a bloom-derived incubated sample, were able to germinate for as long as 6 months after their formation, constitute the overwintering population that causes recurrent blooms of O. ovata in some areas of the Mediterranean Sea. Expand
EFFECTS OF PARENTAL FACTORS AND MEIOSIS ON SEXUAL OFFSPRING OF GYMNODINIUM NOLLERI (DINOPHYCEAE) 1
TLDR
The regulation of the sexual processes by a multiple loci system is discussed based on the pattern of inheritance of the dormancy period and the number of sexual recombination events recorded within cultures with self‐CP capability. Expand

TLDR
The previously undescribed morphological development of resting cysts of the living marine dinoflagellate Lingulodinium ("Gonyaulax") polyedrum has been observed in laboratory cultures and planozygotes preparing to encyst showed a distinctive interstice in the peripheral cytoplasm and often displayed a characteristic swimming behavior.

TLDR
Encystment of the toxic dinoflagellate Gonyaulax tamarensis Lebour (var. excavata) was monitored in batch cultures exposed to a variety of nutritional and environmental treatments, and cyst formation was negligible in nutrient‐replete medium. Expand

It is concluded that the encystment/ex Cystment cycle temporally restricts the occurrence of the vegetative population and may not be optimized for rapid or sustained vegetative growth and bloom formation in shallow embayments. Expand
