Protostelids of the "Stolby" State Reserve (Siberia, Eastern Sayan)
Summary This study presents the first survey of protostelids in the Russian Federation and the second one in boreal forests. Altogether, 158 cultures of protostelids were prepared, with samples taken
Distribution and ecology of protostelids in Great Smoky Mountains National Park
TLDR
Differences in protostelid community diversity and species richness were found between the aerial litter and ground litter microhabitats of primary plant tissues, betweenPrimary tissues and bark of living trees, between bark from angiosperms and bark from gymnosperms, and between primary tissues and coarse woody debris.
Check-list of microscopic protosteloid amoebae from the Southwest of Europe
TLDR
An annotated list of microscopic protosteloid amoebae from the Southwest of Europe that comprises all available data about these organisms from this part of the world, a key to the species, comments on the morphology of the sporocarps and the trophic stages is presented.
First Records and Microhabitat Assessment of Protostelids in the Aberdare Region, Central Kenya
TLDR
A rapid assessment survey on the occurrence and distribution of protosteloid amoebae was carried out in central Kenya, finding that species richness and abundance decreased with increasing elevation.
Microhabitat and Climatic Preferences of Protosteloid Amoebae in a Region with a Mediterranean Climate
The role of microhabitat and climate variation in structuring protosteloid amoebae communities has been investigated for the first time in the Mediterranean Basin, a biodiversity hotspot for plants
Ecological niche models reveal the importance of climate variability for the biogeography of protosteloid amoebae
TLDR
Microhabitat affinity seems to be influenced by climatic conditions, which suggests that the micro-environment may vary at a local scale and change together with the external climate at a larger scale.
The Presence and Distribution of Protostelid Group Organisms in Bursa-Uludağ University Campus Area, Turkey
This study is the first report of protostelids in Turkey. The listed 11 species, all of them new to Turkey, have been prepared in the laboratory cultures that contain samples of aerial plant parts
The fungivorous amoeba Protostelium aurantium targets redox homeostasis and cell wall integrity during intracellular killing of Candida parapsilosis
TLDR
It is shown that upon phagocytic ingestion by the amoeba, Candida parapsilosis is confronted with an oxidative burst and undergoes lysis within minutes of processing in acidified phagolysosomes, indicating that fungal cell wall structures are under selection pressure by predatory phagocytes in natural environments.

Ecology of myxomycetes of a winter-cold desert in western Kazakhstan
TLDR
Myxomycetes in the investigated winter-cold desert behaved as rather opportunistic k-strategists, quickly using all temporally and spatially changing microhabitats to form a successional sequence that correlated well with morphological features of the fructifications.
Studies of neotropical mycetozoans
TLDR
Biotic surveys for mycetozoans (slime moulds) were carried out in a number of study areas in Central and South America to document more complete records of the species associated with tropical forests and other ecosystems in this region of the world, providing evidence for number of ecological patterns not previously reported for myxomycetes.
Protostelids of Macquarie Island
TLDR
It is of interest that most of these six species rarely occur in litter in temperate ecosystems and that the Macquarie Island samples lack any typical litter species such as Nematostelium spp.
Microhabitat distribution of protostelids in temperate habitats in northwestern Arkansas.
TLDR
A standardized technique was developed for the study of protostelid communities from the leaf litter and aerial microhabitats of forests and grasslands in northwestern Arkansas, finding that Protostelium mycophaga Olive and stoian and Soliformovum irregularis (Olive and Stoian) Spiegel were more abundant in grasslands, while Schizoplasmodiopsis pseudoendospora Olive, Martin, and Stoians were more scarce.
Myxomycete biodiversity in four different forest types in Costa Rica.
TLDR
Results indicate that the excess of moisture in continuously moist tropical forests does not favor myxomycete growth and de- velopment, and species richness and frequency patterns for both substrate types were found to be comparable with those calculated from a data set reported for a study area in the temperate zone.
Protostelids, dictyostelids, and myxomycetes in the litter microhabitat of the Luquillo Experimental Forest, Puerto Rico
TLDR
Both species richness and abundance of dictyostelids and myxomycetes were higher in the secondary tabonuco forest than in any of the other forest types, and the general pattern observed was that of decreasing diversity with increasing elevation.
Microhabitat distribution of protostelids in a Tropical Wet Forest in Costa Rica
TLDR
The data conform to those obtained in an earlier study carried out in tropical forests in the mountains of Puerto Rico and provide additional support towards developing a model of microhabitat distribution of protostelids in terrestrial ecosystems.
Protostelids from German Beech forests
A survey for protostelids from old-growth beech forests of northeastern Germany resulted in 14 species found in both ground and aerial litter, constituting the first survey of these organisms from
Protostelids from tropical forests of Costa Rica
TLDR
Schizoplasmodiopsis pseudoendospora, Ne- matostelium gracile, and N. ovatum appear to be the most widely distributed and abundant species asso- ciated with the litter microhabitat in the forests in Costa Rica.
First records of protostelids from northern India
Twelve species of protostelids were isolated from samples of aerial litter and ground litter collected from three study sites in the Himalayan Mountains of northern India. Samples of aerial litter
