Environmental SSU rDNA-based surveys are contributing to the dramatic revision of eukaryotic high-level diversity and phylogeny as the number of sequence data increases. This ongoing revolution gives the opportunity to test for the presence of some eukaryotic taxa in environments where they have not been found using classical microscopic observations. Here, we test whether the foraminifera, a group of single-celled eukaryotes, considered generally as typical for the marine ecosystems are… CONTINUE READING
