Organism losses during ice melting: A serious bias in sea ice community studies
SummaryWhen ice samples are melted, microorganisms living within the brine inclusions are subjected to rapid and extreme changes in salinities. This procedure results in substantial losses ofExpand

Targeted metagenomics and ecology of globally important uncultured eukaryotic phytoplankton
Among eukaryotes, four major phytoplankton lineages are responsible for marine photosynthesis; prymnesiophytes, alveolates, stramenopiles, and prasinophytes. Contributions by individual taxa,Expand

On the chlorophyll a retention properties of glass‐fiber GF/F filters
Extensive comparisons of the retention properties of glass-fiber GF/F and 0.2-μm membrane filters show that these two filter types retain equivalent amounts of Chl a. The experiments conducted wereExpand

Identification of Pseudo-nitzschia australis (Bacillariophyceae) using rRNA-targeted probes in whole cell and sandwich hybridization formats
Abstract Large-subunit ribosomal RNA (LSU rRNA)-targeted oligonucleotides specific for Pseudo-nitzschia australis Frenguelli were used to discriminate that species from cultured isolates of P.Expand

The Santa Barbara Basin is a symbiosis oasis
It is generally agreed that the origin and initial diversification of Eucarya occurred in the late Archaean or Proterozoic Eons when atmospheric oxygen levels were low and the risk of DNA damage dueExpand
