Some techniques for preparing, manipulating and mounting dinoflagellates

William R. Evitt

Abstract. Twentytwo techniques from among those in use in the palynological laboratory at Stanford University are outlined. Many of them are adaptable to different scales of production and to different purposes of research or industrial service work. Sophisticated equipment beyond that conventionally present in any moderately well equipped palynological laboratory is not necessary. Techniques applicable to fossil dinoflagellates are emphasised but a few procedures for obtaining and preparing modern dinoflagellates are included.
