Summer Epiphytic Diatoms from Terra Nova Bay and Cape Evans (Ross Sea, Antarctica) - A Synthesis and Final Conclusions
TLDR
This study synthesise studies on Ross Sea epiphytic diatoms collected during 11 summer Antarctic expeditions between the years 1989/90 and 2011/12, presenting a full list of diatom taxa associated with three macroalgal species and their epipHYtic sessile fauna. Expand
Diatoms and Other Epibionts Associated with Olive Ridley (Lepidochelys olivacea) Sea Turtles from the Pacific Coast of Costa Rica
TLDR
The present study is the first of the epizoic diatom community covering the olive ridley turtle's (Lepidochelys olivacea) carapace and the first describing diatoms living on sea turtles in general, with the primary objective of providing detailed information on turtle epibiotic associations. Expand
Chelonicola and Poulinea , two new gomphonemoid diatom genera (Bacillariophyta) living on marine turtles from Costa Rica
TLDR
This study is the first describing new taxa inhabiting sea turtle carapaces, and a cladistics analysis of putative members of the Rhoicospheniaceae indicates that the family is polyphyletic. Expand
Epiphytic diatom communities of Terra Nova Bay, Ross Sea, Antarctica: structural analysis and relations to algal host
TLDR
Findings of a study on epiphytic diatoms from Terra Nova Bay based on material collected during the summer campaigns spanning from 1990–2004 indicate the nature of host organism as a major factor influencing associated diatom community structure, whereas depth, site, and time of sampling seemed to be less important. Expand
Cocconeis Ehrenberg (Bacillariophyta), a genus dominating diatom communities associated with Posidonia oceanica Delile (monocotyledons) in the Mediterranean Sea
TLDR
The structure of Cocconeis assemblages changed across the various geographic regions both in terms of the species’ presence–absence and their relative abundance, while the most abundant species appeared to be broadly distributed, while less abundant species had a more distinct biogeographic pattern. Expand
Benthic diatoms of the Vistula River estuary (Northern Poland): Seasonality, substrata preferences, and the influence of water chemistry
TLDR
A canonical correspondence analysis indicated that the diatom assemblages were definitely associated with salinity as well as nutrient concentrations and substratum type and malformations of diatom valves were observed in 48% of the microphytobenthos samples. Expand
Spatio-temporal variation in phytoplankton communities along a salinity and pH gradient in a tropical estuary (Brunei, Borneo, South East Asia)
TLDR
The functional diversity observed in phytoplankton from the Brunei River estuary was generally low with few taxa adapted well to the chronically low pH conditions, and a positive correlation between pH and the number of taxa found was detected. Expand
Shared Epizoic Taxa and Differences in Diatom Community Structure Between Green Turtles (Chelonia mydas) from Distant Habitats
TLDR
A comparison of diatom communities inhabiting carapaces of green turtles Chelonia mydas sampled at two remote sites located within the Indian (Iran) and Atlantic (Costa Rica) Ocean basins is presented. Expand
Epibiotic Diatoms Are Universally Present on All Sea Turtle Species
TLDR
It is recommended that future research is undertaken to confirm whether diatom communities vary between sea turtle species and whether these diatom taxa are facultative or obligate commensals. Expand
A comparison of epiphytic diatom communities on Plocamium cartilagineum (Plocamiales, Florideophyceae) from two Antarctic areas
TLDR
The results suggest that Antarctic shallow-water benthic habitats may present a high degree of microniche heterogeneity and highlight the need of fine-scale analyses in microbial studies. Expand
