The life cycle events of an unarmored dinoflagellate Gyrodinium instriatum Freudenthal et Lee has been investigated using clonal cultures. After the inoculation of vegetative cells into fresh medium, clumping of gametes was observed after a period of 10 days. In the clumps, a number of gametes were observed to be swimming in close contact with each other, pairing successively and then forming a plano‐zygote. This clumping behavior is considered to be useful in the performance of sexual… Expand
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
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
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
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
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
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
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
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
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
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

TLDR
It is suggested that many red tides in New England and eastern Canadian waters are initiated through the displacement of motile estuarine populations into nearshore area by tidal advection and surface runoff, although the potential existence and importance of offshore cyst reservoirs cannot be discounted.
