Sexual life cycle events in Pfiesteria piscicida and cryptoperidiniopsoid heterotrophic dinoflagellates were determined by following the development of isolated gamete pairs in single‐drop microcultures with cryptophyte prey. Under these conditions, the observed sequence of zygote formation, development, and postzygotic divisions was similar in these dinoflagellates. Fusion of motile gamete pairs each produced a rapidly swimming uninucleate planozygote with two longitudinal flagella… Expand
Life Cycle of the pseudocolonial dinoflagellate Polykrikos kofoidii (Gymnodiniales, Dinoflagellata)
TLDR
Hypnozygote formation, cyst hatching, the morphology of the germling, and its development into a normal pseudocolony are documented here for the first time and there is evidence that P. kofoidii has a system of complex heterothallism. 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
Sexual and Asexual Processes in Protoperidinium steidingerae Balech (Dinophyceae), with Observations on Life‐History Stages of Protoperidinium depressum (Bailey) Balech (Dinophyceae)
TLDR
Morphological, histological, and molecular techniques were used to reveal for the first time division, sexuality, mandatory dormancy period of hypnozygotes, and identity of life‐history stages of any Protoperidinium spp. 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
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
PLANOZYGOTE DIVISION AND OTHER OBSERVATIONS ON THE SEXUAL CYCLE OF SEVERAL SPECIES OF DINOPHYSIS (DINOPHYCEAE, DINOPHYSIALES) 1
TLDR
It is hypothesized that planozygotes are the main diploid sexual stage that may be involved in overwintering and seeding strategies and the importance of planozygote division, without further maturation into a resting cyst, as an adaptive strategy for holoplanktonic organisms. Expand
Comparative study of the life cycles of Alexandrium tamutum and Alexandrium minutum (Gonyaulacales, Dinophyceae) in culture 1
TLDR
In both species, cyst appearance needed to be explained by the existence of more than two sexual types (+/–), which indicates a complex heterothallic mating type, however, planozygotes of both species may divide instead of encysting. Expand
COMPARATIVE STUDY OF THE LIFE CYCLES OF ALEXANDRIUM TAMUTUM AND ALEXANDRIUM MINUTUM (GONYAULACALES, DINOPHYCEAE) IN CULTURE
The microalgal genus Alexandrium includes species known to produce paralytic shellfish poisoning (PSP). Due to the importance of discriminating between HAB-forming species, we compared theExpand
Studies on woloszynskioid dinoflagellates VIII: life cycle, resting cyst morphology and phylogeny of Tovellia rinoi sp. nov. (Dinophyceae)
TLDR
The species was isolated from a flooded area near Aveiro, Portugal, and followed in culture through all stages of the life cycle, including formation of vegetative cells and gametes, sexual fusion, planozygote division through division cysts and the production of resting cysts. Expand
New insights on the life cycle stages of the toxic benthic dinoflagellate Ostreopsis cf. ovata
TLDR
At least two types of cyst were formed, a non-dormant cyst germinating within 2 days and a resting cyst which is able to germinate after a 5-month dormancy only at temperatures over 25 °C. Expand

LIFE CYCLE OF THE HETEROTROPHIC DINOFLAGELLATE PFIESTERIA PISCICIDA (DINOPHYCEAE)1
TLDR
A rigorous examination of the life cycle of P. piscicida using nuclear staining techniques combined with high‐resolution video microscopy, EM, and in situ hybridization with a suite of fluorescently labeled peptide nucleic acid (PNA) probes showed that it had a typical haplontic dinoflagellate life cycle.

TLDR
Stages indicating a completed sexual cycle were uncommon or absent in clonal cultures but were relatively abundant in the mixed clone culture and self‐sterility factors apparently influenced sexuality. Expand

TLDR
In the seven clonal isolates examined, reproduction was strongly linked to the availability of prey cells, and resistance of reproductive cysts to antimicrobial treatments was examined, and a simple high‐yield technique was developed for population synchronization while ridding the dinoflagellates of most contaminating vacuolar prey DNA and external contaminants.
