A RAPID SIMPLE TECHNIQUE UTILIZING CALCOFLUOR WHITE M2R FOR THE VISUALIZATION OF DINOFLAGELLATE THECAL PLATES 1
The fluorescent stain Calcofluor White M2R readily binds to cellulose and other β‐linked glucans and should prove useful for the tabulation and study of dinoflagellate thecae.
A MOLECULAR ANALYSIS OF THE EUGLENOPHYTES USING SSU RDNA
Using small subunit (SSU) rDNA data to generate a phylogenetic framework for the genera Euglena, Phacus, Lepocinclis, Astasia, and Khawkinea, the need for a revision in the taxonomy of some of these genera was demonstrated.

This work has added molecular characters from the Small Subunit (SSU) rDNA to generate an overall phylogenetic framework for the euglenoids, a distinct monophyletic clade with phagotrophic members diverging prior to the phototrophic and osmotrophicMembers.
Character evolution in heterotrophic euglenids
A cladistic analysis of a large morphological data set from heterotrophic euglenids found that Dinema sulcatum held a pivotal position in the phylogenetic tree and possessed many characters that bridged bacteriotrophic taxa with eukaryotrophicTaxa.

Phylogenetic analyses of 35 strains carried out using the SSU rDNA suggest that neither the Euglenales nor the Eutreptiales form a monophyletic lineage, thus questioning currently available classifications.
An ultrastructural comparison of the mitotic apparatus, feeding apparatus, flagellar apparatus and cytoskeleton in euglenoids and kinetoplastids
It is hypothesize that a euglenoid with features similar to those now present in P. cantuscygni was ancestral to both the eugenoid and kinetoplastid lines.
PHYLOGENETIC RELATIONSHIPS OF SELECTED EUGLENOID GENERA BASED ON MORPHOLOGICAL AND MOLECULAR DATA 1
This study suggests that the hypothetical ancestor to the Euglenozoa was a phagotroph with two flagella, both containing paraxonemal rods, and its basal bodies contained proximal cartwheels, were connected by a prominent fiber, and were anchored with three asymmetrically arranged flagellar roots.
MORPHOLOGICAL SEPARATION OF THE EUGLENOID GENERA TRACHELOMONAS AND STROMBOMONAS (EUGLENOPHYTA) BASED ON LORICA DEVELOPMENT AND POSTERIOR STRIP REDUCTION 1
Two sets of morphological characters, lorica development and pellicle strip reduction, support the separation of Trachelomonas and Strombomonas as distinct genera.
PHYLOGENY OF THE EUGLENALES BASED UPON COMBINED SSU AND LSU RDNA SEQUENCE COMPARISONS AND DESCRIPTION OF DISCOPLASTIS GEN. NOV. (EUGLENOPHYTA) 1
This study demonstrated that increased taxon sampling, multiple genes, and combined data sets provided increased support for internal nodes on the euglenoid phylogenetic tree and resolved relationships among the major genera in the photosynthetic eUGlenoid lineage.
MULTIGENE ANALYSES OF PHOTOSYNTHETIC EUGLENOIDS AND NEW FAMILY, PHACACEAE (EUGLENALES) 1
The family Euglenaceae is proposed to be limited to the members of the Euglena clade and a new family, the Phacaceae, to house the genera Phacus, Lepocinclis, and Discoplastis is proposed.
