A Review on the Biodiversity and Biogeography of Toxigenic Benthic Marine Dinoflagellates of the Coasts of Latin America
Many benthic dinoflagellates are known or suspected producers of lipophilic polyether phycotoxins, particularly in tropical and subtropical coastal zones. These toxins are responsible for diverse
Phylogeography and Diversity Among Populations of the Toxigenic Benthic Dinoflagellate Prorocentrum From Coastal Reef Systems in Mexico
This study represents the largest chemodiversity analysis of polyketide-derived toxins associated with diarrheic shellfish poisoning (DSP) from a benthic dinoflagellate genus and demonstrates that clonal chemod diversity in toxin composition cannot yet be effectively applied to define ecological niches or species interactions within local assemblages.
Identification of Phytoplankton Blooms under the Index of Inherent Optical Properties (IOP Index) in Optically Complex Waters
Phytoplankton blooms are sporadic events in time and are isolated in space. This complex phenomenon is produced by a variety of both natural and anthropogenic causes. Early detection of this
1 Identification of phytoplankton blooms under the 2 index of Inherent Optical Properties ( IOP index ) 3
Phytoplankton blooms are sporadic events in time and isolated in space. This complex 19 phenomenon is produced by a variety of both natural and anthropogenic causes. Early detection of 20 this
Ciguatera in Mexico (1984–2013)
Dinoflagellate species Gambierdiscus, Ostreopsis, and Prorocentrum are related with the reported outbreaks, marine toxins, ecological risk, and the potential toxicological impact of ciguatera in Mexico.
Mapping Satellite Inherent Optical Properties Index in Coastal Waters of the Yucatán Peninsula (Mexico)
The Yucatan Peninsula hosts worldwide-known tourism destinations that concentrate most of the Mexico tourism activity. In this region, tourism has exponentially increased over the last years,


Seasonal changes in epiphytic dinoflagellate assemblages near the northern coast of the Yucatan Peninsula, Gulf of Mexico.
Epiphytic dinoflagellates were studied in 250 samples from 10 sites in Chelem (a semi-enclosed mangrove lagoon) and Dzilam de Bravo (an exposed coastal locality), on the northern coast of the Yucatan
Pelagic and epiphytic summer distributions of Prorocentrum lima and P. mexicanum at two mussel farms in the Gulf of St. Lawrence, Canada
The identifi- cation of these 2 potentially toxic species in the St. Lawrence highlights the importance of Prorocen- trum spp.
Cambios estacionales en conjuntos de dinoflagelados epifícos cerca de la costa norte de la Península de Yucatán, Golfo de México
The data obtained indicate that the greatest potential for ciguatoxin flux into the food web may occur in protected, low turbulence environments, where salinities are high, nutrients abundant, and water temperatures are between 24 and 31  o C.
Seasonal changes of benthic and epiphytic dinoflagellates in the Veracruz reef zone, Gulf of Mexico
Dinoflagellate abundance was not correlated with any measured physical or chemical parameter (temperature, salinity, pH, dis- solved oxygen, nitrates, nitrites, ammonium, phosphates, precipitation or wind speed and direction).
Epiphytic dinoflagellates associated with ciguatera in the northwestern coast of Cuba.
Environmental conditions in summer are suitable for macroalgae development, which serves as a substrate for potentially harmful dinoflagellates, and possibly the main vector for spreading ciguatera along the coast of Cuba.
Structural variations of phytoplankton in the coastal seas of Yucatan, Mexico
A study was done of the relationship between hydrographic variables and the composition, abundance, community structure and biomass spectrums of coastal phytoplankton at scales greater than 100 km on
Benthic-epiphytic dinoflagellates from the northern portion of the Mesoamerican Reef System
Abstract In 2010, we surveyed 42 sampling locations at 11 sites along the Mexican part of the Mesoamerican Reef System, including eight protected natural areas of the coastal state of Quintana Roo,
