Data were collected examining the effect of microplastic ingestion on heterotrophic dinoflagellate growth rates. Heterotrophic dinoflagellate species O. marina and Gyrodinium sp. were incubated for 5 days under two conditions: a control, fed only algal prey I. galbana, and a treatment fed algal prey and microplastic particles. Samples were taken every 24 hours, with abundances of dinoflagellates, algal prey, and microplastics measured with a Beckman Coulter Counter and verified via microscopy. Ingestion rates were measured and compared between treatments. For a complete list of measurements, refer to the full dataset description in the supplemental file 'Dataset_description.pdf'.

Rapid growth and concerted sexual transitions by a bloom of the harmful dinoflagellate Alexandrium fundyense (Dinophyceae) Brosnahan, Michael L.; Velo-Suarez, Lourdes; Ralston, David K.; Fox, Sophia E.; Sehein, Taylor R.; Shalapyonok, Alexi; Sosik, Heidi M.; Olson, Robert J.; Anderson, Donald M. (John Wiley & Sons, 2015-09-18)Transitions between life cycle stages by the harmful dinoflagellate Alexandrium fundyense are critical for the initiation and termination of its blooms. To quantify these transitions in a single population, an Imaging ...
Vertical migration of dinoflagellates : model analysis of strategies, growth, and vertical distribution patterns Ji, Rubao; Franks, Peter J. S. (Inter-Research, 2007-08-23)Dinoflagellates demonstrate a variety of vertical migration patterns that presumably give them a competitive advantage when nutrients are depleted in the surface layer of stratified waters. In this study, a simple quota-based ...
