MetadataShow full item record
The surface sediment samples of 47 stations in Sabah, Sarawak and Brunei Darussalam waters were collected by M.V. SEAFDEC for identification and quantitative analysis of benthic dinoflagellate cysts. A total of 18 dinoflagellate cyst belonging to family Gonyaulacaceae, Pyrophacaceae and Protoperiniaceae were identified. The cyst density in this area was in a range of 6 to 278 cysts/cm3 with Spiniferites bulloideus was the dominant species. Cysts of harmful species were not observed in this study but a small number of Alexandrium cyst-like was found at a station near coastal area of Sarawak.
