Alexandrium minutum is a toxic single-celled armoured dinoflagellate that is well characterised morphologically in Balech, Cells are spherical in shape and small-sized, 15 to 29 um in diameter. The cell is green-brown in colour with a theca (clear protective covering). Blooms of toxic dinoflagellates within the genus Alexandrium are among the most widespread and dangerous harmful algal blooms (HABs) globally, and cause significant ecological, economic and public health impacts to temperate and subarctic coastal areas worldwide (Anderson et al. ).Toxic species within the genus produce saxitoxins, a class of neurotoxins that Cited by: Cyclin B and its cell cycle-dependent differential expression in the toxic dinoflagellate Alexandrium fundyense Atama Group I/Clade I.

Phylogeny and Biogeography of the Toxic Dinoflagellate Alexandrium The incidence and known distribution of paralytic shellfish poison-producing Alexandrium dinoflagellates have both increased dramatically in recent decades.
This thesis explores the phylogeny, taxonomy, and biogeography of Alexandrium in light of this expansion. The reconstructed biogeography of the tamarensis and minutum complexes indicate that both natural dispersal and human-assisted transportation of Alexandrium have caused the geographic spread.
Human-assisted transport of toxic A. catenella-type cells from Asia to the Thau Lagoon, France, was demonstrated in chapter by: The presence of the toxic dinoflagellate Alexandrium catenella was first recorded during the early s in the fjords and inland seas of the Chilean Northwest Patagonia.

Alexandrium is a genus of dinoflagellates. It contains some of the dinoflagellate species most harmful to humans, because it produces toxic harmful algal blooms (HAB) that cause Paralytic Shellfish Poisoning (PSP) in humans. (1) There are about 30 species of Alexandrium that form a clade, Class: Dinophyceae.
On the basis of morphological evidence, the species involved in South American Pacific coast harmful algal blooms (HABs) has been traditionally recognized as Alexandrium catenella (Dinophyceae). However, these observations have not been confirmed using evidence based on genomic sequence by: 9.
A review of the dinoflagellate genus Alexandrium occurring in Brazilian coastal waters is presented based on both published information and new data.
