Critical taxonomic revision of Parabasalids with description of one new genus and three new species.
We propose a new classification of Parabasalia which is congruent with both ultrastructural and molecular-phylogenetic studies. We identify six main parabasalid lineages and give them the rank ofExpand

CBOL Protist Working Group: Barcoding Eukaryotic Richness beyond the Animal, Plant, and Fungal Kingdoms
A group of protist experts proposes a two-step DNA barcoding approach, comprising a universal eukaryotic pre-barcode followed by group-specific barcodes, to unveil the hidden biodiversity ofExpand

Biodiversity of avian trypanosomes.
We have studied the biodiversity of trypanosomes from birds and bloodsucking Diptera on a large number of isolates. We used two molecular approaches, random amplification of polymorphic DNA (RAPD)Expand

Cryptic species within the Tetratrichomonas gallinarum species complex revealed by molecular polymorphism.
Tetratrichomonas gallinarum is a widespread intestinal parasite of galliform and anseriform birds. The pathogenicity of this species is controversial, presenting an unsettled problem as yet. WeExpand

New evolutionary lineages, unexpected diversity, and host specificity in the parabasalid genus Tetratrichomonas.
We studied morphological and molecular polymorphism of 53 Tetratrichomonas isolates obtained from amphibian, reptilian, mammalian hosts, and from a slug with the aid of protargol staining andExpand

Between a Pod and a Hard Test: The Deep Evolution of Amoebae
Abstract Amoebozoa is the eukaryotic supergroup sister to Obazoa, the lineage that contains the animals and Fungi, as well as their protistan relatives, and the breviate and apusomonad flagellates.Expand

Critical analysis of the topology and rooting of the parabasalian 16S rRNA tree.
The morphological classification of the protozoan phylum Parabasala is not in absolute agreement with the 16S rRNA phylogeny. However, there are strong indications that tree-construction artifactsExpand

Sergeia podlipaevi gen. nov., sp. nov. (Trypanosomatidae, Kinetoplastida), a parasite of biting midges (Ceratopogonidae, Diptera).
Three strains of a trypanosomatid protozoan were isolated from the midguts of two naturally infected species of biting midges [Culicoides (Oecacta) festivipennis and Culicoides (Oecacta) truncorum]Expand
