Periphytic ciliate colonization: annual cycle and responses to environmental conditions
Diversity and evenness indices were found to be relatively independent of physico-chemical factors, whereas species richness and the ratio of biomass to abundance were strongly related to nutrients, and multivariate analyses revealed that temperature, nutrients and salinity may best explain the changes in community structure of ciliates colonizing the glass slides.
Anaerobic ammonium oxidation (anammox) bacterial diversity, abundance, and activity in marsh sediments of the Yangtze Estuary
Anaerobic ammonium oxidation (anammox) as an important process of nitrogen cycle has been studied in estuarine environments. However, knowledge about the dynamics of anammox bacteria and their
An updated phylogeny of oligotrich and choreotrich ciliates (Protozoa, Ciliophora, Spirotrichea) with representative taxa collected from Chinese coastal waters
The authors' analyses support the previous reports that the genus Tintinnopsis is polyphyletic and can not refute the monophyly of Strombidium.
The All-Data-Based Evolutionary Hypothesis of Ciliated Protists with a Revised Classification of the Phylum Ciliophora (Eukaryota, Alveolata)
The molecular dataset was expanded with representatives from 55 orders and all major lineages and the monophyly of classes Phyllopharyngea, Karyorelictea, Armophorea, Prostomatea, Plagiopylea, Colpodea and Heterotrichea are confirmed.
Biochar addition affected the dynamics of ammonia oxidizers and nitrification in microcosms of a coastal alkaline soil
Biochar amendments have frequently been reported to alter microbial communities and biogeochemical processes in soils. However, the impact of biochar application on bacterial (AOB) and archaeal

An integrated view of bacterial and archaeal diversity in saline soil habitats is essential for understanding the biological and ecological processes and exploiting potential of microbial resources from such environments and can guide future studies to further examine the microbial diversity of saline soils.
Taxonomic Redescriptions of Two Ciliates, Protogastrostyla pulchra n. g., n. comb. and Hemigastrostyla enigmatica (Ciliophora: Spirotrichea, Stichotrichia), with Phylogenetic Analyses Based on 18S
It is concluded that these two species may represent some lower groups in the subclass Stichotrichia, and that G. pulchra should represent a new genus, Protogastrostyla n.
Morphological Descriptions of New and Little‐Known Benthic Ciliates from Ganghwa Tidal Flat, Korea
Several new and interesting taxa are discovered from the top layer sediment of a muddy site in the Ganghwa tidal flat, including three new species Spirodysteria ganghwaensis n.
Depth shapes α- and β-diversities of microbial eukaryotes in surficial sediments of coastal ecosystems.
While community composition was significantly different among basins, partial Mantel tests indicated a depth-decay pattern of community similarity, whereby water depth, rather than geographic distance or environment, shaped β-diversity of benthic microeukaryote distribution in surficial sediments of coastal oceans on a regional scale.
