The New Higher Level Classification of Eukaryotes with Emphasis on the Taxonomy of Protists
TLDR
This revision of the classification of unicellular eukaryotes updates that of Levine et al. (1980) for the protozoa and expands it to include other protists, and proposes a scheme that is based on nameless ranked systematics.
Colpodella vorax: ultrastructure, predation, life-cycle, mitosis, and phylogenetic relationships
TLDR
The flagellar apparatus of Colpodella vorax comprises two widely separated basal bodies/flagella linked by a pluri-lamellar connector, very short basal bodies and a slightly longer transitional zone, and the pseudo-conoid transforms into a ring of microtubules encircling the attachment zone.
Cryptophagus subtilis: a new parasite of cryptophytes affiliated with the Perkinsozoa lineage
TLDR
An unknown parasitic protist is described in the free-living cryptophyte Chilomonas paramaecium, phylogenetically affiliated to the Perkinsozoa lineage comprising Perkinsus and Parvilucifera.
Diversity, nomenclature, and taxonomy of protists.
TLDR
Evaluating placental inter-ordinal phylogenies with novel sequences including RAG1, γ -fibrinogen, ND6, and mt-tRNA, plus MCMC-driven nucleotide, amino acid, and codon models, plus a phylogenetic foundation for comparative mammalian genomics is evaluated.
Collodictyon triciliatum and Diphylleia rotans (=Aulacomonas submarina) form a new family of flagellates (Collodictyonidae) with tubular mitochondrial cristae that is phylogenetically distant from
TLDR
Electron microscopic observation of mitotic telophase in Diphylleia rotans revealed two chromosomal masses, surrounded by the nuclear envelope, within the dividing parental nucleus, as in theTelophase stage of the heliozoan Actinophrys and theHelioflagellate Dimorpha.
Flagellar and cytoskeletal systems in amitochondrial flagellates: Archamoeba, Metamonada and Parabasala
TLDR
The characters of the flagellar apparatus and its associated cytoskeleton are examined to obtain clues used for phylogenetic consideration on the three cited groups of flageLLates to contribute to a better understanding of the phylogenetic relationships among these groups.
Ultrastructure of Joenina pulchella Grassi, 1917 (Protista, Parabasalia), a reassessment of evolutionary trends in the parabasalids, and a new order Cristamonadida for devescovinid, calonymphid and
TLDR
Parabasalids such as Lophomonadidae, Joeniidae, Deltotrichonymphidae, and possibly Rhizonymph Families and Kofoidiidae, collectively the lophomonads, have conserved the trichomonad/devescovinid organization and have a trichmonad-like morphogenesis involving only the privileged basal bodies and attached fibres.
