The marine oligotrich ciliate Strombid- ium rassoulzadegani retains and utilizes the chloro- plasts of its algal food. It does not appear to be able to induce its captured plastids to divide, and so the plas- tids must be replaced with new ones from recently ingested food. We measured the plastid replacement rate of S. rassoulzadegani, its growth and feeding rates, chlorophyll retention, and mortality when starved, and determined whether the ciliate showed differential grazing or plastid… Expand
