An approach to analyses of periphytic ciliate communities for monitoring water quality using a modified artificial substrate in Korean coastal waters.
Structural parameters of periphytic ciliate communities on a modified substrate were studied in Korean coastal waters during the period August-November 2007. In order to reduce the strongExpand

Identification of genes suitable for DNA barcoding of morphologically indistinguishable Korean Halichondriidae sponges.
The development of suitable genetic markers would be useful for defining species and delineating the species boundaries of morphologically indistinguishable sponges. In this study, genetic variationExpand

Taxonomic Redescriptions of Two Ciliates, Protogastrostyla pulchra n. g., n. comb. and Hemigastrostyla enigmatica (Ciliophora: Spirotrichea, Stichotrichia), with Phylogenetic Analyses Based on 18S
ABSTRACT. The morphology and infraciliature of two stichotrichid ciliates, Gastrostyla pulchra (Perejaslawzewa 1886) Kahl, 1932 and Hemigastrostyla enigmatica (Dragesco and Dragesco‐Kernéis 1986)Expand

The complete mitochondrial genome sequence of Oncicola luehei (Acanthocephala: Archiacanthocephala) and its phylogenetic position within Syndermata.
In the present study, we determined the complete mitochondrial genome sequence of Oncicola luehei (14,281bp), the first archiacanthocephalan representative and the second complete sequence from theExpand

Intraspecific hybridization of Anopheles sinensis (Diptera: Culicidae) strains from Thailand and Korea.
Anopheles (Anopheles) sinensis [Wiedemann (1828)] is a member of the hyrcanus species group, and it has been incriminated as the natural or experimental malaria vectors in the Republic of Korea,Expand

Eurotatorian paraphyly: Revisiting phylogenetic relationships based on the complete mitochondrial genome sequence of Rotaria rotatoria (Bdelloidea: Rotifera: Syndermata)
BackgroundThe Syndermata (Rotifera+Acanthocephala) is one of the best model systems for studying the evolutionary origins and persistence of different life styles because it contains a series ofExpand
