The Marine Microbial Eukaryote Transcriptome Sequencing Project (MMETSP): Illuminating the Functional Diversity of Eukaryotic Life in the Oceans through Transcriptome Sequencing
TLDR
This Community Page describes a resource of 700 transcriptomes from marine microbial eukaryotes to help understand their role in the world's oceans.
Plankton in the open Mediterranean Sea: a review
TLDR
An overview of the plankton studies conducted during the last 25 years in the epipelagic offshore waters of the Mediterranean Sea is presented, finding a "multivorous web" is shown by the great variety of feeding modes and preferences and by the significant and simultaneous grazing impact on phytoplankton and ciliates by mesozooplankon.
DIVERSITY IN THE GENUS SKELETONEMA (BACILLARIOPHYCEAE). II. AN ASSESSMENT OF THE TAXONOMY OF S. COSTATUM‐LIKE SPECIES WITH THE DESCRIPTION OF FOUR NEW SPECIES 1
TLDR
The morphology of strains of Skeletonema Greville emend Sarno et Zingone was examined in LM, TEM, and SEM and compared with sequence data from nuclear small sub unit rDNA and partial large subunit rDNA, challenging the concept of S. costatum as a single cosmopolitan and opportunistic species.
Eukaryotic plankton diversity in the sunlit ocean
TLDR
Diversity emerged at all taxonomic levels, both within the groups comprising the ~11,200 cataloged morphospecies of eukaryotic plankton and among twice as many other deep-branching lineages of unappreciated importance in plankton ecology studies.
Alien species in the Mediterranean Sea by 2010. A contribution to the application of European Union's Marine Strategy Framework Directive (MSFD). Part I. Spatial distribution
TLDR
The state-of-art on alien species in the Mediterranean Sea is presented, making distinctions among the four subregions defined in the EU Marine Strategy Framework Directive; the WMED hosts most invasive macrophytes, whereas the EMED has the lion’s share in polychaetes, crustaceans, molluscs and fish.
Patterns of Rare and Abundant Marine Microbial Eukaryotes
Green and golden seaweed tides on the rise
TLDR
Harvesting the macroalgae, a valuable raw material, before they beach could well be developed into an effective solution to solve the problem of sudden beaching of huge seaweed masses.
Marine protist diversity in European coastal waters and sediments as revealed by high-throughput sequencing.
TLDR
This extensive and systematic sequencing of geographically separated sites provides the most comprehensive molecular description of coastal marine protist diversity to date.
