Method Dinoflagellate cell volume was determined from linear measurements made with a Zeiss Axiovert microscope equipped with a digitizer pad and Microbiota software (Roff and Hopcroft 1986).
Comments All data presented here are based on size measurements performed on live cells. Average live- cell volume (µm^3) ranged from 180 to 2.79X10^5 µm^3 (Table 2). There was considerable variation in cell volume within species the coefficient of variation (CV) averaged 33% (ranging 22-56%).
