An experimentally determined carbon : volume ratio for marine “oligotrichous” ciliates from estuarine and coastal waters
TLDR
The study indicates that the biomass of oligotrichous ciliates in marine systems has been significantly underestimated by the use of inappropriate C: vol ratios.
Predation on Protozoa: its importance to zooplankton
Evaluation de l'importance potentielle des protozoaires comme source de nourriture pour le zooplancton et les larves de poissons
Obligate mixotrophy inLaboea strobila, a ciliate which retains chloroplasts
TLDR
Based on ingestion rate and photosynthetic rate, it is calculated that photosynthesis can make an important contribution to this ciliate's carbon budget even when algal food is plentiful.
Preservation of marine planktonic ciliates: losses and cell shrinkage during fixation
TLDR
No single fixation method is ideal for all purposes; fixative-specific and assemblageor taxon-specific correction factors are necessary for accurate estimates of cell numbers and cell volumes/biomass.
Iron and grazing constraints on primary production in the central equatorial Pacific: An EqPac synthesis
TLDR
Iron budgets are consistent with the notions that new production is determined by the rate of new iron input to the system while total production depends on efficient iron recycling by grazers and the interactions of resource limitation and grazing in HNLC regions are conceptually similar.
POLARELLA GLACIALIS, GEN. NOV., SP. NOV. (DINOPHYCEAE): SUESSIACEAE ARE STILL ALIVE!
TLDR
The new genus Polarella and the new species Polarella glacialis are established on the basis of the peculiar plate pattern of this dinoflagellate, which has a remarkable similarity with fossil Suessiaceae cysts dating back to the Triassic and Jurassic.
Cryptophyte algae are robbed of their organelles by the marine ciliate Mesodinium rubrum
TLDR
It is shown that although M. rubrum lacks a cytostome (oral cavity), it ingests cryptophytes and steals their organelles, and may not maintain a permanent endosymbiont, it may be a chimaera partially supported by organelle robbery.
