Abstract

For avoiding the unfavorable environmental conditions several aquatic microorganisms are capable of forming specialized resistance cells like akinets, hypnospores, statospores, etc. Recognition of the important role of cysts in the life cycles of dinoflagellates increased the need to study their role in the ecology of phytoplanktons, and this, combined with the knowledge of chemical and biological characteristics of the water, may lead to a better understanding of the spatial and temporal dynamics of dinoflagellates. This paper reports on the effects of temperature, nitrogen, and phosphorus on the percentage of encystment of the dinoflagellate Peridinum cinctum Stein. The phosphorus content of the medium affected encystment only at the highest temperature applied (22 degrees C). Nitrogen content and temperature were the most important factors controlling the encystment.
