Periphytic ciliate colonization: annual cycle and responses to environmental conditions
Diversity and evenness indices were found to be relatively independent of physico-chemical factors, whereas species richness and the ratio of biomass to abundance were strongly related to nutrients, and multivariate analyses revealed that temperature, nutrients and salinity may best explain the changes in community structure of ciliates colonizing the glass slides.

Morphological Investigations on Some Free Living Ciliates (Protozoa, Ciliophora) from China Sea with Description of a New Hypotrichous Genus, Hemigastrostyla nov. gen.
Summary 2 heterotrichous and 9 hypotrichous ciliates including one new genus collected from the Yellow Sea and the Bohai Bay, north-eastern China are morphologically investigated based on livingExpand
Three-gene based phylogeny of the Urostyloidea (Protista, Ciliophora, Hypotricha), with notes on classification of some core taxa☆
The molecular phylogeny supports the following conclusions: the monophyly of the core group of Urostyloidea is well supported while the whole Urostylon is not monophyletic; and Arcuseries gen. nov. containing three distinctly deviating Anteholosticha species is established. Expand
Faunistic studies on marine ciliates from the Antarctic benthic area, including descriptions of one epizoic form, 6 new species and, 2 new genera (Protozoa: Ciliophora)
The morphology and taxonomy of 22 marine benthic ciliates including 2 new genera and 6 new species from the Antarctic area are described using live observations and silver impregnation techniques:Expand
An updated phylogeny of oligotrich and choreotrich ciliates (Protozoa, Ciliophora, Spirotrichea) with representative taxa collected from Chinese coastal waters
The authors' analyses support the previous reports that the genus Tintinnopsis is polyphyletic and can not refute the monophyly of Strombidium. Expand
Reconsideration of the Phylogenetic Positions of Five Peritrich Genera, Vorticella, Pseudovorticella, Zoothamnopsis, Zoothamnium, and Epicarchesium (Ciliophora, Peritrichia, Sessilida), Based on
The molecular work demonstrates the genus Zoothamnium to be paraphyletic in relation to morphological studies, and suggests that Astylozoon, Opisthonecta, and Vorticella microstoma possibly share a SSU rRNA secondary structure in the helix E10‐1 region. Expand
Reinvestigations of Three “Well-known” Marine Scuticociliates: Uronemella filificum (Kahl, 1931) nov. gen., nov. comb., Pseud cohnilembus hargisi Evans & Thompson, 1964 and Cyclidium citrullus Cohn
An establishment of a new genus Uronemella is suggested based on the data obtained and the diagnosis for the new taxon, which is generally pear-shaped body and subequatorially positioned cytostome and in vivo exhibiting typical rotatory movement with help of a caudal-cilium-associated sticky thread.

Trichodinid ectoparasites (Ciliophora: Peritrichida) of some marine fishes from coastal regions of the Yellow Sea and Bohai Sea
Five species of marine fishes, including two of the main maricultured fishes from coastal regions of the Yellow Sea and Bohai Sea, were examined for ectoparasitic trichodinids, finding both prevalence and intensity of infestation to be high. Expand
Phylogeny and systematic revision of the family Pseudokeronopsidae (Protista, Ciliophora, Hypotricha), with description of a new estuarine species of Pseudokeronopsis
A new estuarine species of Pseudokeronopsis is described, which is believed to be the first of its kind to be described in the world. Expand
