Characteristics of suspended particulate organic matter in the southwestern Atlantic: Influence of temperature, nutrient and phytoplankton features on the stable isotope signature
Utility of genetic markers and morphology for species discrimination within the order Tintinnida (Ciliophora, Spirotrichea).
Abundance and biogeography of tintinnids (Ciliophora) and associated microzooplankton in the Southwestern Atlantic Ocean
. Absolute abundances of foraminifers, polycystine and phaeodarian radiolarians, tintinnids, pteropods and early crustacean larvae and moults were assessed in a collection of 57 vertically strati-ﬁed…
Discrimination of closely related species in tintinnid ciliates: new insights on crypticity and polymorphism in the genus Helicostomella.
Microplanktonic distributional patterns west of the Antarctic Peninsula, with special emphasis on the Tintinnids
Tintinnid species-specific assemblages show a coherent distributional pattern and well defined environment-related trends; most clearly differentiated preferences are exhibited by Laackmanniella prolongata (closely associated with ice-covered areas), Cymatocylis affinis/convallaria (oligotrophic open-ocean waters), and Codonellopsis balechi (coastal regions).
Patterns in tintinnid species composition and abundance in relation to hydrological conditions of the southwestern Atlantic during austral spring
Tintinnid abundances and species structure reflected the degree of variability in the hydrological conditions of the southwestern Atlantic between 1994 and 1995 and was reflected in a quite similar tintinnid community structure during these 2 years.
Species composition and biogeography of diatoms in antarctic and subantarctic (Argentine shelf) waters (37-76°S)
Phylogeny of the Order Tintinnida (Ciliophora, Spirotrichea) Inferred from Small‐ and Large‐Subunit rRNA Genes
This study contributes to tintinnid phylogenetic reconstruction by increasing both the number of species and the range of genetic markers analyzed.
The ecology of larger microzooplankton in the Weddell-Scotia confluence area: horizontal and vertical distribution patterns
Microzooplankton and tintinnid species-specific assemblage structures: patterns of distribution and year-to-year variations in the Weddell Sea (Antarctica)
Comparisons with similar Weddell andWeddell-Scotia data retrieved in February-March 1987 and November 1988-December 1989 are highly coherent in terms of microplankton abundances, their geographic and vertical distribution patterns, and the specific make-up and distribution of tintinnid assemblages.
