The distributions of families belonging to Tintinnida on samples collected from İzmir Bay for 20 years were examined in this study. The species list, quantity and quality information prepared for each species of the 11 families belonging to the Tintinnida were examined together with the seawater temperature changes during the period and a general species lists were established. In addition to the indigenous species that are constantly found in the bay, non-indigenous species that have been…

Tintinnids (Protozoa: Ciliophora) of the Büyükçekmece Bay in the Sea of Marmara*
The study shows that the species and individual numbers of tintinnids decreased in winter and early spring when phytoplankton increases, and appears to be correlated with the decrease in abundance of total phy Topolankton and diatoms.
Tintinnid (Protozoa: Ciliophora) species in the Edremit Bay
This first study performed in the Edremit Bay of the Aegean Sea includes the basic hydrographic conditions of the environment such as temperature, salinity and dissolved oxygen.
A Check-List of Tintinnids (Protozoa: Ciliophora) in the Coastal Zone of Turkey
A lorica based classification and organized 109 tintinnid morpho-species from previously published works are used to provide for the first time a reliable check-list of the region following the International Code of Zoological Nomenclature rules.
Species of Genus Tintinnopsis Stein , 1867 in Turkish Coastal Waters and New Record of Tintinnopsis corniger Hada , 1964
This study reports Tintinnopsis corniger Hada, 1964 for the first time from the Turkish coastal waters and contributes to the regional check-list of the plankton species in the Turkish seas. This
Tintinnid ciliates as indicator species of different water masses in the western North Pacific Polar Front
Distributions of 10 dominant tintinnid taxa and groups in the western North Pacific Polar Frontal Zone or the Sanriku Waters were analysed on T-S-Plankton diagrams to estimate their values as indicator species of water masses to identify the origin ofWater masses originating from both currents.
Studies on the functional role of tintinnids in the Southern California Bight. III. Grazing impact of natural assemblages
The high tintinnid growth efficiencies previously observed and the relatively high efficiency with which tintinnids can be grazed by larger consumers suggest that relatively little of the energy and material fixed by the nanno-phytoplankton may be lost to the larger consumers by the insertion of a ciliate “extra link” into the food chain.
Biogeography and ecology of Rhizodomus tagatzi, a presumptive invasive tintinnid ciliate
The biogeographic pattern emerging from this study, along with the prevalence of this species in ports and in transition environments exploited for bivalve culture, confirms the former assumption of an invasive behaviour of R. tagatzi, and suggests aquaculture transplants as a possible means of dispersion forciliated protozoa.
Distribution of Tintinnids (Loricate Ciliates) in East Asian Waters in Summer
The distribution of planktonic ciliates, tintinnids, was studied in the East China Sea, the southern Korean waters and the East Sea (the Sea of Japan) in summer. A total of 20 species of tintinnids
Growth of Favella sp. (Ciliata: Tintinnina) and other microzooplankters in cages incubated in situ and comparison to growth in vitro
Microplankton cages with porous polycarbonate membrane sides were used to investigate the population growth of Favella sp., a large tintinnid which preys on dinoflagellates, Balanion sp., a
Of the dinoflagellates tested, strain Gymno, Gonyaulax tamarensis, G. polyedra, and Heterocapsa sp.
