Microzooplankton herbivory and community structure in the Amundsen Sea, Antarctica
Abstract We examined microzooplankton abundance, community structure, and grazing impact on phytoplankton in the Amundsen Sea, Western Antarctica, during the early austral summer from December 2010
Redescriptions of three tintinnid ciliates, Tintinnopsis tocantinensis, T. radix, and T. cylindrica (ciliophora, spirotrichea), from coastal waters off China.
Detailed ciliary patterns of T. tocantinensis and T. radix are reported here for the first time, comprising a ventral, dorsal, and posterior kinety as well as a right, left, and lateral ciliary field.
An approach to analyzing spatial patterns of planktonic ciliate communities for monitoring water quality in Jiaozhou Bay, northern China.
Results suggest that planktonic ciliated protozoa might be used as a robust bioindicator of marine water quality.
Planktonic ciliate communities in a semi-enclosed bay of Yellow Sea, northern China: annual cycle
Multivariate analyses revealed that ciliate abundance was significantly correlated with water temperature, dissolved oxygen and nutrients, especially nitrate nitrogen and soluble reactive phosphate (P < 0.05).
Fate of applied urea 15N in a soil-maize system as affected by urease inhibitor and nitrification inhibitor
A micro-plot field experiment with reduced urea N-15 application was conducted to study the effects of urease inhibitor NBPT (N-(n-butyl) thiophosphoric triamide) and nitrification inhibitor
Semiochemicals from ovaries of gravid females attract ovipositing female houseflies, Musca domestica.
Both tricosane and (Z)-9-tricosene were shown to elicit dose-dependent aggregation of gravid females in oviposition bioassays, but high doses of either chemical were not attractive.
Use of biofilm-dwelling ciliate communities to determine environmental quality status of coastal waters.
It is suggested that biofilm-dwelling ciliate communities might be used as a potentially robust bioindicator for discriminating environmental quality status in coastal waters.
Colonization dynamics in trophic-functional structure of periphytic protist communities in coastal waters
The colonization dynamics in trophic-functional patterns of periphytic protist communities was studied in coastal waters of the Yellow Sea, northern China from May to June, 2010 and may provide necessary understandings for ecological researches and monitoring programs using peripHYtic protists with different colonization ages in marine ecosystems.
Using pelagic ciliated microzooplankton communities as an indicator for monitoring environmental condition under impact of summer sea-ice reduction in western Arctic Ocean
The results suggest that the summer sea-ice reduction has affected ciliate biodiversity seriously and the pelagic ciliate communities may be useful as robust bioindicators for studying climate change effects under increasing sea- ice melting in the Arctic Ocean.
Soil microbial food web responses to free-air ozone enrichment can depend on the ozone-tolerance of wheat cultivars
In conclusion, wheat cultivars play an important role in determining the effects of elevated [O3] on soil food web, and the responses of soil biota to elevated [ O3] were greater in ozone-tolerant wheat thanin ozone-sensitive wheat, which may in turn have influenced soil organic matter decomposition and nutrient turnover.
