In order to study the origin of metazoans, we have compared sequences from the 5' end of the large subunit ribosomal RNA of a number of protists, fungi, plants and metazoans, including all diploblastic phyla (sequences of 10 new species have been determined, including that of the placozoan, Trichoplax adhaerens). These sequences were analyzed using distance(More)

Reticulosphaera socialis GRELL, a protist from the Caribbean coast of Mexico, has a life cycle consisting of a benthic and a pelagic phase. The benthic phase is the dominating part. It is represented by the meroplasmodium, a cellular association which consists of the spherical cell bodies and a common reticulopodial network. Each cell body is surrounded by(More)
