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, interstitial…
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.
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.
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.
Taxonomic Revision and Neotypification of Zosterodasys transversus (Kahl, 1928), with Description of a Mirror-Image Doublet (Ciliophora, Phyllopharyngea, Synhymeniida)
The morphology and morphometry of a freshwater ciliate, Zosterodasys transversus, is described using live observation and protargol impregnation and a single cell of a mirror-image type was found in the well-growing neotype population.
Morphological and phylogenetical studies on a new soil hypotrich ciliate: Kahliella matisi spec. nov. (Hypotrichia, Kahliellidae).
Resting cysts of Parentocirrus hortualis Voß, 1997 (Ciliophora, Hypotrichia), with preliminary notes on encystation and various types of excystation.
A new soil hypotrich ciliate (Protozoa, Ciliophora) from Slovakia: Gonostomum albicarpathicum nov. spec.
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.
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.
