Abstract
    This treatise represents a comprehensive, up-to-date multifunctional dinoflagellate identification database featuring information on 69 species of harmful marine dinoflagellates and associated species present in the world’s oceans. This database includes 44 toxin-producing species, brevetoxins, saxitoxins and ciguatoxins, and seven nuisance species that produce ‘red tides’ often resulting in massive sea life mortalities. In addition to the species description, information is available on the morphology, reproduction, ecology, toxicity, and habitat and locality for each species. A comprehensive glossary of more than 120 related scientific terms, and an extensive literature reference collection containing about 500 citations is included. There are nearly 600 figures illustrating every species via scanning electron micrographs (60%), light micrographs (20%), and/or line drawings (20%). The matrix-based identification key allows for multiple entry of characters to facilitate fast and effective diagnosis of a given species.
