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… 

New life-cycle stages of Gymnodinium catenatum (Dinophyceae): laboratory and field observations

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.

Life Cycle of the pseudocolonial dinoflagellate Polykrikos kofoidii (Gymnodiniales, Dinoflagellata)

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.

Revision of the life cycle of the harmful dinoflagellate Margalefidinium polykrikoides (Gymnodiniales, Dinophyceae) based on isolates from Korean coastal waters

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.

MULTIPLE ROUTES OF SEXUALITY IN ALEXANDRIUM TAYLORI (DINOPHYCEAE) IN CULTURE 1

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.

NUCLEAR FEATURES AND EFFECT OF NUTRIENTS ON GYMNODINIUM CATENATUM (DINOPHYCEAE) SEXUAL STAGES 1

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.

Studies on woloszynskioid dinoflagellates VIII: life cycle, resting cyst morphology and phylogeny of Tovellia rinoi sp. nov. (Dinophyceae)

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.

Comparative study of the life cycles of Alexandrium tamutum and Alexandrium minutum (Gonyaulacales, Dinophyceae) in culture 1

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

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.
