What is a Biopop?
They are miniature time capsules When their environmental conditions get too tough, they can form tough little cysts that can survive in the sediment of their water as fossils for as long as 100 years. Once conditions improve, the dinoflagellates can reanimate.
How long do dinoflagellates live?
or 5 days
How long can dinoflagellates live without light?
