Abstract

This overview of methodology and applications of sediment archives of living dinoflagellates and other protists examines their potential to study ecology and evolution of unicellular eukaryotes through time. Sediment cores from Koljö Fjord on the west coast of Sweden and from Mariager Fjord in Northern Denmark, both enclosed embayments with recurring anoxic bottom water, provide a virtually undisturbed sediment record. Cultures of dinoflagellates (and other protists) were established by individually isolating specimens from dated sediment layers.
