The Revised Classification of Eukaryotes
This revision of the classification of eukaryotes, which updates that of Adl et al. [J. Eukaryot. Microbiol. 52 (2005) 399], retains an emphasis on the protists and incorporates changes since 2005Expand

Molecular phylogeny, evolutionary rates, and divergence timing of the symbiotic dinoflagellate genus Symbiodinium.
Symbiotic dinoflagellates belonging to the genus Symbiodinium are found in association with a wide variety of shallow-water invertebrates and protists dwelling in tropical and subtropical coral-reefExpand

Phylogenomics reveals a new ‘megagroup’ including most photosynthetic eukaryotes
Advances in molecular phylogeny of eukaryotes have suggested a tree composed of a small number of supergroups. Phylogenomics recently established the relationships between some of these largeExpand

The twilight of Heliozoa and rise of Rhizaria, an emerging supergroup of amoeboid eukaryotes.
Recent molecular phylogenetic studies revealed the extraordinary diversity of single-celled eukaryotes. However, the proper assessment of this diversity and accurate reconstruction of the eukaryoteExpand

A molecular time-scale for eukaryote evolution recalibrated with the continuous microfossil record
Recent attempts to establish a molecular time-scale of eukaryote evolution failed to provide a congruent view on the timing of the origin and early diversification of eukaryotes. The majorExpand

High genetic diversity and relative specificity among Symbiodinium-like endosymbiotic dinoflagellates in soritid foraminiferans
Abstract. Soritids are large calcareous foraminiferans abundant in Indo-Pacific coral reefs. Soritids are known to host endosymbionts morphologically and genetically similar to Symbiodinium-likeExpand

Molecular identification of developmental stages in Opecoelidae (Digenea).
Nuclear ribosomal DNA sequences represent a useful tool for distinction of poorly differentiated developmental stages, such as trematode cercariae or metacercariae. Here, the complete internalExpand

Molecular phylogeny and classification of the lobose amoebae.
The lobose amoebae can be defined as presumably asexual amoeboid organisms, producing lobopodia and possessing a simple life cycle, involving only cell division and, in some species, encystment. TheyExpand

New supraordinal classification of Foraminifera: Molecules meet morphology
The limitations of a traditional morphology-based classification of Foraminifera have been demonstrated by molecular phylogenetic studies for several years now. Despite the accumulation of molecularExpand
