The feeding of 18 species of thrcale hetrophi dinoflagellates from three genera (Protoperidininm, Oblea, Zygabikodinium) can all be described within one general framework. These species engulf diatoms and other prey with a pseudopod (herein terned a “Pallium”)which originates at the flagellar pore in the sulcus. The pallium is a highly plastic, membranous organ which rasily strethes to accommodate spines and many as 58 diatom cells in a chain. The contents of the phytoplanklon prey are… Expand
Phagotrophic Mechanisms and Prey Selection in Free‐living Dinoflagellates 1
TLDR
Three types of feeding mechanisms are known in dinoflagellates: pallium feeding, tube feeding, and direct engulfment, which allow the ingestion of relatively large prey or parts thereof. Expand
First successful culture of the marine dinoflagellate Dinophysis acuminata
The dinoflagellate genus Dinophysis in- cludes several species that cause diarrhetic shellfish poi- soning, none of which have yet been established in cul- ture. We report on the maintenance ofExpand
Feeding by the Pfiesteria‐Like Heterotrophic Dinoflagellate Luciella masanensis
TLDR
Perch blood cells were observed to be the optimal prey for L. masanensis, and these three dinoflagellates may occupy different ecological niches in marine planktonic communities, even though they have a similar size and shape and the same feeding mechanisms. Expand
Gyrodinium undulans Hulburt, a marine dinoflagellate feeding on the bloom-forming diatomOdontella aurita, and on copepod and rotifer eggs
TLDR
The marine dinoflagellateGyrodinium undulans was discovered as a feeder on the planktonic diatomOdontella aurita, and strongly resembles Syltodinium listii, a summer species feeding on copepod and rotifer eggs, at least under culture conditions. Expand
Feeding by the newly described heterotrophic dinoflagellate Aduncodinium glandula : having the most diverse prey species in the family Pfiesteriaceae
TLDR
A. glandula may have a unique kind of prey and its optimal prey differs from that of the other pfiesteriacean dinoflagellates. Expand
ESTUARINE HETEROTROPHIC CRYPTOPERIDINIOPSOIDS (DINOPHYCEAE): LIFE CYCLE AND CULTURE STUDIES 1
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. Expand
Nutritional features and feeding behavior of the heterotrophic dinoflagellate Pfiesteria shumwayae
TLDR
This research focused on one Pfiesteria species, P. shumwayae, which is among the relatively few heterotrophic dinoflagellates that have been maintained in long-term culture and has facilitated research on the biology and ecology of these species. Expand
Feeding by the newly described heterotrophic dinoflagellate Stoeckeria changwonensis: A comparison with other species in the family Pfiesteriaceae
TLDR
The feeding behavior of S. changwonensis may differ from that of other species in the family Pfiesteriaceae because it feeds on various kinds of prey species different from those of the other heterotrophic dinoflagellates. Expand
Feeding by the Newly Described Mixotrophic Dinoflagellate Paragymnodinium shiwhaense: Feeding Mechanism, Prey Species, and Effect of Prey Concentration
TLDR
The results of the present study suggest that P. shiwhaense can have a considerable grazing impact on algal populations. Expand
Ecology of the heterotrophic dinoflagellate genus Protoperidinium in the inner Oslofjord (Norway)
TLDR
Food availability is more important than physical variables (temperature) in regulating population growth in these microplankton grazers, and known food requirements of individual Protoperidinium species are discussed. Expand

TLDR
Taxonomic composition of the Igloolik phytoplankton was influenced by the fast ice and by the shallowness and hydrographic uniformity of the adjacent areas, and descriptions are given of two new species of dinoflagellates and the new coccolithine flagellate Pontospkaera ditrematolitha. Expand
