Use of PFU protozoan community structural and functional characteristics in assessment of water quality in a large, highly polluted freshwater lake in China.
The research provides further evidence that the protozoan community may be utilized effectively in the assessment of water quality and that the PFU method furnishes rapid, cost-effective and reliable information that may be useful for measuring responses to pollution stress in aquatic ecosystems.

Host species as a strong determinant of the intestinal microbiota of fish larvae
The present study suggests that the intestines of the four fish larvae, although reared in the same environment, contained distinct bacterial populations, while intestinal eukaryotic microorganisms were almost identical. Expand
The temporal and spatial distribution, composition and abundance of Protozoa in Chaohu Lake, China: Relationship with eutrophication
This study demonstrates again that the PFU artificial substrate method samples protozoan communities more effectively than routine natural substrate methods. Expand
Freshwater Testate Amoebae of Nine Yunnan Plateau Lakes, China
The results suggest that the lake trophic status plays an important role in shaping community structure and in determining species diversity of testate amoebae. Expand
Molecular Phylogeny of Stentor (Ciliophora: Heterotrichea) Based on Small Subunit Ribosomal RNA Sequences
The complete small subunit rRNA genes of three Stentor species were sequenced and used to construct phylogenetic trees using the maximum parsimony, neighbor joining, and Bayesian analysis, and with all phylogenetic methods, the genusStentor was monophyletic. Expand
Plankton community composition in the Three Gorges Reservoir Region revealed by PCR-dGGE and its relationships with environmental factors.
To explore the relationships between community composition and the environment in a reservoir ecosystem, plankton communities from the Three Gorges Reservoir Region were studied by PCR-denaturing gradient gel electrophoresis fingerprinting and Canonical correspondence analysis was applied. Expand
Spatiotemporal heterogeneity of plankton communities in Lake Donghu, China, as revealed by PCR-denaturing gradient gel electrophoresis and its relation to biotic and abiotic factors.
The study suggested that genetic diversity as depicted by metagenomic techniques (such as PCR-DGGE fingerprinting) is a promising tool for ecological study of plankton communities and that such techniques are likely to play an increasingly important role in assessing the environmental conditions of aquatic habitats.

PCR‐DGGE Fingerprinting Analysis of Plankton Communities and Its Relationship to Lake Trophic Status
Results of the present study suggest that PCR-DGGE fingerprinting is an effective and precise method of identifying changes to plankton community composition, and therefore could be a useful ecological tool for monitoring the response of aquatic ecosystems to environmental perturbations. Expand
Phylogenetic relationships among Trichodinidae [Ciliophora: Peritricha] derived from the characteristic values of denticles
The evolutionary trend of the denticle is discussed and it is concluded that the denticles of the adhesive disc should be an apomorphic feature of the trichodinids and their changes could reflect the evolutionary tendencies of these ciliates. Expand
The specimen described herein represents a new genus and species Jiangshanosaurus lixianensis of sauropod referable to the Titanosauridae. The specimen was collected by Wei Feng,Wu Wei Tang and KangExpand
