The Dinoflagellates of Northern Seas

    Article metrics


    A SHORT account is given of the general morphology of the Dinoflagellata, in which the terms afterwards employed are clearly explained, the various modes of nutrition are considered, and notes arc added on the reproduction and habits. Dr. Lebour expresses the opinion that a large proportion of what are now regarded as species may prove to be merely phases in the lite-history of other species. An outline classi fication showing the families and genera precedes the systematic account, in which a short description of each genus and species is given, and the characters of the species are illustrated by one or more line drawings—those on the 35 plates being original. The methods of collecting and examining dinoflagellates are briefly described, a list of memoirs on the sub-class is appended, and there is a full index.
