LSID urn:lsid:algaebase.org:taxname:47384 [details]

From regional or thematic species database
Harmful effect This species has previously been considered to be toxic, but there is presently no evidence for this [details]

Importance General: known for producing "red tides" because the cells are so abundant they make water change color. [details]

From other sources
Diet general for group: both heterotrophic (eat other organisms) and autotrophic (photosynthetic) [details]

Distribution neritic and estuarine, sometime oceanic; cosmopolitan in cold temperate to tropical waters. Sometimes forming blooms. Often more abundant in late summer-fall [details]

Habitat pelagic [details]

Predators marine microorganisms and animal larvae [details]

Reproduction general for group: both sexual and asexual [details]
