Periphytic ciliate colonization: annual cycle and responses to environmental conditions
TLDR
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.
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:
An updated phylogeny of oligotrich and choreotrich ciliates (Protozoa, Ciliophora, Spirotrichea) with representative taxa collected from Chinese coastal waters
TLDR
The authors' analyses support the previous reports that the genus Tintinnopsis is polyphyletic and can not refute the monophyly of Strombidium.
Reconsideration of the Phylogenetic Positions of Five Peritrich Genera, Vorticella, Pseudovorticella, Zoothamnopsis, Zoothamnium, and Epicarchesium (Ciliophora, Peritrichia, Sessilida), Based on
TLDR
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.
Trichodinid ectoparasites (Ciliophora: Peritrichida) of some marine fishes from coastal regions of the Yellow Sea and Bohai Sea
TLDR
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.
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
TLDR
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.
Protargol Synthesis: An In‐house Protocol
TLDR
A protocol is described, based on the early studies of neuroanatomists, that yields a protargol producing impregnations of ciliates comparable to those obtained with previously available commercial preparations.
