Morphological Studies on Five Trachelocercids from the Yellow Sea Coast of China, with a Description of Tracheloraphis huangi spec. nov. (Ciliophora, Karyorelictea)
TLDR
The poorly known T. colubis is redescribed including for the first time information on its infraciliature and is transferred to Tracheloraphis from the genus Trachelocerca.
Insights into the origin of metazoan multicellularity from predatory unicellular relatives of animals
TLDR
Analysis of the cellular structures and complex life cycles of the novel unicellular holozoans Pigoraptor and Syssomonas and their implications for the origin of animals suggest the feeding modes of the ancestral metazoan may have been more complex than previously thought.
A Reinvestigation of the Marine Ciliate Trachelocerca ditis (Wright, 1982) Foissner and Dragesco, 1996 (Ciliophora, Karyorelictea) from the Yellow Sea and an Assessment of Its Phylogenetic Position
TLDR
The infraciliature and the general morphology of living cells closely resemble those of a population from the French Atlantic coast at Roscoff, however, some differences were noted including the size of the macronuclei, the appearance of the nucleoli and the presence of vacuoles that contained peculiar figure-of-eight inclusions.
Influence of the period of existence of a biotope on the formation of the species structure of a marine psammophilous ciliate community
TLDR
It was shown that quantitatively and qualitatively the community of ciliates formed rather quickly during the first seasonal cycle of development in the new created biotope, however, one annual cycle is not sufficient for the formation of a community species structure, including the species ratio reflecting its niche structure.
Insights into the origin of metazoan multicellularity from predatory unicellular relatives of animals
TLDR
The cellular structures and complex life cycles of the novel unicellular holozoans Pigoraptor and Syssomonas (Opisthokonta) provide new insights into the origin of multicellularity in Metazoa.
