Chloroplast symbiosis in a marine ciliate: ecophysiology and the risks and rewards of hosting foreign organelles
Simultaneous use of both heterotrophic and autotrophic metabolism (“mixotrophy”) is common among protists. Strombidium rassoulzadegani is a planktonic mixotrophic marine ciliate that savesExpand

Plastid retention, use, and replacement in a kleptoplastidic ciliate
The marine oligotrich ciliate Strombid- ium rassoulzadegani retains and utilizes the chloro- plasts of its algal food. It does not appear to be able to induce its captured plastids to divide, and soExpand

Shifts in microbial food web structure and productivity after additions of naturally occurring dissolved organic matter: Results from large‐scale lacustrine mesocosms
Predicting the effects of dissolved organic matter (DOM) on pelagic food webs can be difficult because DOM modifies water column optics and can have contrasting effects on species across trophicExpand

Growth, grazing, and inorganic C and N uptake in a mixotrophic and a heterotrophic ciliate
We compared growth, grazing and inorganic carbon and nitrogen uptake in two ciliates, the mixotrophic Strombidium rassoulzadegani and the heterotrophic Strombidinopsis sp. The mixotroph had overExpand
