The Revised Classification of Eukaryotes
TLDR
This revision of the classification of eukaryotes retains an emphasis on the protists and incorporates changes since 2005 that have resolved nodes and branches in phylogenetic trees. Expand
Multiple marker parallel tag environmental DNA sequencing reveals a highly complex eukaryotic community in marine anoxic water
TLDR
It is suggested that current understanding of the ecological complexity of protist communities, genetic diversity, and global species richness are severely limited by the sequence data hitherto available, and long‐tailed rank abundance curves suggest that the 454 sequencing approach provides improved access to rare genotypes. Expand
The Protist Ribosomal Reference database (PR2): a catalog of unicellular eukaryote Small Sub-Unit rRNA sequences with curated taxonomy
TLDR
The presence of both rRNA and rDNA sequences, taking into account introns (crucial for eukaryotic sequences), a normalized eight terms ranked-taxonomy and updates of new GenBank releases were made possible by a long-term collaboration between experts in taxonomy and computer scientists. Expand
Patterns of Rare and Abundant Marine Microbial Eukaryotes
TLDR
It is proposed that marine planktonic microeukaryote assemblages incorporate dynamic and metabolically active abundant and rare subcommunities, with contrasting structuring patterns but fairly regular proportions, across space and time. Expand
Discovery of novel intermediate forms redefines the fungal tree of life
TLDR
This work investigates the ecology and cell biology of a previously undescribed and highly diverse form of eukaryotic life that branches with the Fungi, using environmental DNA analyses combined with fluorescent detection via DNA probes and names this highly diverse clade the cryptomycota in anticipation of formal classification. Expand
Marine fungi: their ecology and molecular diversity.
TLDR
Evidence for 36 novel marine lineages, the majority and most divergent of which branch with the chytrids, are discussed and what these data mean for the evolutionary history of the Fungi and specifically marine-terrestrial transitions are investigated. Expand
Novel cultured protists identify deep-branching environmental DNA clades of cercozoa: New Genera Tremula, Micrometopion, Minimassisteria, Nudifila, Peregrinia.
TLDR
The phylogeny indicates that Filosa were ancestrally gliding flagellates; non-flagellate filose amoebae evolved from them five times independently; the new genera are more closely related to environmental DNA sequences than cultured organisms. Expand
Phylum-specific environmental DNA analysis reveals remarkably high global biodiversity of Cercozoa (Protozoa).
TLDR
The results suggest that the diversity of cercozoan taxa may run into thousands of lineages, making it comparable in diversity to the largest better-characterized protozoan phyla, e.g. Ciliophora (ciliates and suctorians) and Foraminifera. Expand
Yeast forms dominate fungal diversity in the deep oceans
TLDR
The diversity of fungi detected suggests that deep-sea environments host an evolutionarily diverse array of fungi dominated by groups of distantly related yeasts, although four putative filamentous fungal 18S-types were detected. Expand
Phylogeny of novel naked Filose and Reticulose Cercozoa: Granofilosea cl. n. and Proteomyxidea revised.
TLDR
The classically mainly reticulose Proteomyxidea to Endomyxa is transferred, removing evident filosans as new class Granofilosea (including Desmothoracida, Acinetactis and new heliomonad family Heliomorphidae (new genus Heliomorpha (=Dimorpha)). Expand
