HISTORIA DE LAS INVESTIGACIONES SOBRE DINOFLAGELADOS MARINOS EN ESPAÑA

ABSTRACT En 1903, R. Carús Falcón, médico en Villagarcía de Arosa (Pontevedra), publica las
primeras ilustraciones de dinoflagelados marinos en España. El organismo causante de las
mareas rojas en la Rías Bajas en 1917 fue motivo de disputas entre R. Sobrino y O. de Buen.
En 1942, B. F. Osorio-Tafall describe varias especies durante su exilio en México. En 1945, P. González Guerrero describe Exuviaella cavanillesiana en la desembocadura del río Guadalete (Puerto de Santa María, Cádiz). La descripción es poco detallada y al aparecer aislada en un trabajo sobre macroalgas epicontinentales ha pasado inadvertida. En los años 60, R. Margalef describió los géneros Scaphodinium y Ceratoperidinium en las costas de Castellón y dos especies en Puerto Rico. Los estudios de seguimiento de las mareas rojas en Galicia llevan a la descripción de Gyrodinium impudicum en 1995.

    ABSTRACT: An annotated checklist of the free-living dinoflagellates (Dinophyceae) of the Mediterranean Sea, based on literature records, is given. The distribution of 673 species in 9 Mediterranean sub-basins is reported. The number of taxa among the sub-basins was as follows: Ligurian (496 species), Balear-Provençal (360), Adriatic (322), Tyrrhenian (284), Ionian (283), Levantine (268), Aegean (182), Alborán (179) and Algerian Seas (151).

    ABSTRACT: Records of dinoflagellates of the family Leptodiscaceae (Noctilucales) from the Kuroshio Current, Philippine, Celebes, Sulu, South China Seas and the western and central Equatorial Pacific Ocean are described. Scaphodinium mirabile was the most common leptodiscacean. Two specimens that differed from the type species of Scaphodinium were found: one specimen showed a highly bifurcate proximal extremity and another showed two dissimilar proboscides from the distal extremity. Another unidentified leptodiscacean showed an arrowhead-shaped contour with the margins folded. Six specimens of Petalodinium porcelio were found, being the first record beyond the Mediterranean-Black Seas. Six specimens were tentatively assigned to the genus Leptodiscus, being the first record beyond the western Mediterranean Sea. The folded specimens that ranged from 90 to 120 mm in diameter and with a prominent flagellum were tentatively considered to be young specimens of Leptodiscus. The abundance of the leptodiscaceans is underestimated in the world's oceans.

    ABSTRACT: At the end of summer 1986, hydrographic data and phytoplankton samples were collected on three occasions in the Ria de Vigo. The phytoplankton composition was studied in relation to the hydrography using principal component analysis and canonical correlation analysis. Upwelling and the response of the plankton community emerge as the main source of variation in the analyses. Within this framework, nutrient regeneration was observed, partly attributable to ciliates and small flagellates. The second source of variation of the phytoplankton was the presence in the later samples of a Gymnodinium catenatum red tide. Two other phytoplankton populations were clearly differentiated. One oceanic, dominated by Erythropsis sp., Ceratium horridum and Stauroneis membranacea, which practically disappeared when the red tide was established. The other, dominated by Solenicola setigera, dinoflagellate cysts and elongated diatoms, was a permanent population located below the populations which responded to upwelling. The penetration of warm oceanic water into the ria during the second day of observations altered the distributions of all the planktonic populations, isolating them in a downwelling zone. The energy of the oceanic intrusion could have been sufficient to remove sediments from the interior of the ria and to stimulate the formation of the red tide, by confining a water body in the ria which lost little by mixing. It is likely that the resuspension of G. catenatum cysts provided the necessary inoculum.
