The dataset includes a list of dinoflagellate cysts recorded in the Gulf of Naples (Tyrrhenian Sea, Mediterranean Sea). more

The research program, funded by the Stazione Zoologica ‘A. Dohrn’ of Naples, Italy was aimed at assessing dinoflagellate cyst distribution in the Gulf of Naples and cysts fluxes at the long-term monitoring station MareChiara (2 year-long study with sediment traps).
