Limnology of streams in the Poloniny National Park (the EastCarpathians, Slovakia)
Structure of hydrocoenoses of the streams in the Poloniny National Park were studied during the years 1999 and 2000. Composition of epilithic diatom communities, microzoobenthos, interstitialExpand
Diversity and ecology of ciliates [Alveolata: Ciliophora] living in the bark and decaying wood mass in Slovakia
Hierarchical classification showed that different clusters constitute niches with their own ciliate fauna rather affected by prevalent environmental factors than certain tree species, which indicates that DWM could be considered as an unstable and unpredictable habitat. Expand
Morphological and phylogenetical studies on a new soil hypotrich ciliate: Kahliella matisi spec. nov. (Hypotrichia, Kahliellidae).
The morphology, ontogenesis, encystment, and 18S rRNA gene sequence of a new soil hypotrich ciliate, Kahliella matisi, were studied, indicating a relationship with oxytrichids. Expand
A new soil hypotrich ciliate (Protozoa, Ciliophora) from Slovakia: Gonostomum albicarpathicum nov. spec.
The morphology and infraciliature of the soil hypotrich ciliate, Gonostomum albicarpathicum nov. spec., collected from Biele Karpaty (White Carpathian Mts.), Slovakia, were investigated using livingExpand
Resting cysts of Parentocirrus hortualis Voß, 1997 (Ciliophora, Hypotrichia), with preliminary notes on encystation and various types of excystation.
This is the first report of division in resting cysts of oxytrichids, but reproduction in division cysts was already described in keronopsids. Expand
Interaction of ciliate communities with cyanobacterial water bloom in a shallow, hypertrophic reservoir
It is documents that ciliates form functionally diverse communities with potential to control cyanobacterial blooms in hypertrophic reservoirs. Expand
Taxonomic revision of the ciliate genus Zosterodasys Deroux, 1978 (Protista: Ciliophora: Synhymeniida)
An illustrated taxonomic key, containing all Zosterodasys species considered identifiable in this revision is prepared, and characters that have been used in the morphological taxonomy of the genus Zosterdasys are discussed. Expand
A Study on Resting Cysts of an Oxytrichid Soil Ciliate, Rigidohymena quadrinucleata (Dragesco and Njine, 1971) Berger, 2011 (Ciliophora, Hypotrichia), including Notes on its Encystation and
The results suggest that not only ciliate resting cysts, but also the excystation process is much more variable than what literature data indicate. Expand
Spathidium seppelti foissneri nov. subspec., Spathidium simplinucleatum nov. stat., and Dileptus americanus Kahl, 1931, one new and two poorly known soil gymnostome ciliates from soils of Slovakia.
The morphology and infraciliature of three soil gymnostome ciliates, Spathidium seppelti foissneri nov. subspec., Spathidium simplinucleatum nov. stat., and Dileptus americanus, collected fromExpand
Checklist and distribution of ciliates from the family Euplotidae Ehrenberg, 1838 (Protista: Ciliophora: Spirotrichea) in Slovakia, Central Europe.
A checklist of ciliates from the family Euplotidae recorded in the territory of Slovakia, Central Europe was assembled and the euryhaline species E. woodruffi was found for the first time in Slovakia, its morphology is described. Expand
