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… 

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

COMPARATIVE STUDY OF THE LIFE CYCLES OF ALEXANDRIUM TAMUTUM AND ALEXANDRIUM MINUTUM (GONYAULACALES, DINOPHYCEAE) IN CULTURE

TLDR
A synchronization–flow cytometry method for discriminating diploids formed by sexual fusion (planozygotes) from cells with 2C DNA content resulting from self-duplication of DNA (dividing cells) was described and indicated that light might not be needed for the sexual fusion and formation of planozygotes.

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.

SEXUAL PROCESSES IN THE LIFE CYCLE OF GYRODINIUM UNCATENUM (DINOPHYCEAE): A MORPHOGENETIC OVERVIEW 1

Sexual processes in the life cycle of the dinoflagellate Gyrodinium uncatenum Hulburt were investigated in isolated field populations. Morphological and morphogenetic aspects of gamete production,

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.

REPRODUCTION AND SEXUALITY IN PFIESTERIA SHUMWAYAE (DINOPHYCEAE) 1

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.

Transmission of gametic nuclei through a fertilization tube during mating in a primitive dinoflagellate, Prorocentrum micans Ehr.

TLDR
Observations and microspectrofluorimetric measurements made in vivo of the relative amounts of nuclear DNA show that these forms are sexual forms; unlike the situation in dino-flagellate species that are known to be sexual, the male and female gametes of P. micans do not fuse.

PHAGOTROPHIC FEEDING AND ITS IMPORTANCE TO THE LIFE CYCLE OF THE HOLOZOIC DINOFLAGELLATE, GYMNODINIUM FUNGIFORME 1

TLDR
The holozoic dinoflagellate, Gymnodinium fungiforme Anissimova, has been observed in both asexually and sexually reproducing cultures and feed on prey as large as the ciliated protozoan, Condylostoma magnum Spiegel, and has been cultured phagotrophically with the chlorophyte, Dunaliella salina Teodoresco as a food source.

Alternate life history stages in Amphidinium klebsii (Dinophyceae, Pyrrophyta)

TLDR
October field collections from a salt water marsh maintained in the laboratory revealed stages of cell fusion and nuclear cyclosis in Amphidinium klebsii Kofoid & Swezy, suggesting that these cells represent planozygotes.

TLDR
Isogamy as well as anisogamy and nuclear cyclosis were observed, and a Crypthecodinium cohnii-like dinoflagellate found to prey on the unicellular red alga Porphyridium sp.

TLDR
The sexual reproduction of Navicula oblonga is described, which is morphologically and behaviourally isogamous, and the gametangia do not subsequently separate and no copulation envelope is produced.
