  • Dinophysis acuminata

    Marine plankton species of dinoflagellates that is found in coastal waters of the north Atlantic and Pacific oceans. The genus Dinophysis includes both phototrophic and heterotrophic species. Wikipedia

  • Dinophysis acuta

    Species of flagellated planktons belonging to the genus Dinophysis. One of the few unusual photosynthetic protists that acquire plastids from algae by endosymbiosis. Wikipedia

  • Photoheterotroph

    Photoheterotrophs (Gk: photo = light, hetero = (an)other, troph = nourishment) are heterotrophic phototrophs – that is, they are organisms that use light for energy, but cannot use carbon dioxide as their sole carbon source. Consequently, they use organic compounds from the environment to satisfy their carbon requirements; these compounds include carbohydrates, fatty acids, and alcohols. Wikipedia

  • Tripos (dinoflagellate)

    Genus of marine dinoflagellates in the family Ceratiaceae. Formerly part of Ceratium, then separated out as Neoceratium, a name subsequently determined to be invalid. Wikipedia

  • Paramecium bursaria

    Species of ciliate found in marine and brackish waters. It has a mutualistic endosymbiotic relationship with green algae called Zoochlorella. Wikipedia

  • Bacterioplankton

    Bacterioplankton refers to the bacterial component of the plankton that drifts in the water column. The name comes from the Ancient Greek word πλανκτος (planktos), meaning "wanderer" or "drifter", and bacterium, a Latin term coined in the 19th century by Christian Gottfried Ehrenberg. Wikipedia
