Abstract. This revision of the classification of unicellular eukaryotes updates that of Levine et al. (1980) for the protozoa and expands it to include other protists. Whereas the previous revision was primarily to incorporate the results of ultrastructural studies, this revision incorporates results from both ultrastructural research since 1980 and molecular phylogenetic studies. We propose a scheme that is based on nameless ranked systematics. The vocabulary of the taxonomy is updated… Expand
The Revised Classification of Eukaryotes
TLDR
This revision of the classification of eukaryotes retains an emphasis on the protists and incorporates changes since 2005 that have resolved nodes and branches in phylogenetic trees. Expand
The New Tree of Eukaryotes.
TLDR
The combination of traditional culturing with maturing culture-free approaches and phylogenomics should accelerate the process of completing and resolving the eukaryote Tree of Life at its deepest levels. Expand
Recent Developments in the Molecular Taxonomy of Fungi
TLDR
This chapter gives an up-to-date account of the taxonomy of fungi, referring to the recent AFTOL (‘ assembling the fungal tree of life') scheme, and considers groups which no longer belong to the Fungi in a taxonomic sense, but continue to be studied by mycologists. Expand
Implications of the new eukaryotic systematics for parasitologists.
TLDR
This new eukaryotic phylogeny emphasizes that organisms including Giardia, Trypanosoma and Trichomonas are not primitive, but instead highly evolved and specialised for their specific environments. Expand
An overview of the phylogeny and diversity of eukaryotes
TLDR
The identity of the major groups of eukaryotes, some of their important, defining or simply interesting features and the pro- posed relationships of these groups to each other are outlined. Expand
Evaluating Support for the Current Classification of Eukaryotic Diversity
TLDR
It is demonstrated that supergroup taxonomies are unstable and that support for groups varies tremendously, indicating that the current classification scheme of eukaryotes is likely premature. Expand
Pursuit of a natural classification of diatoms: History, monophyly and the rejection of paraphyletic taxa
TLDR
Through recent history, with observations based on light microscopy, electron microscopy and molecular analysis, the creation of paraphyletic groups and their retention has been the tradition, leaving a natural classification of the group wanting. Expand
The other eukaryotes in light of evolutionary protistology
TLDR
It is argued that an evolutionary understanding of protists is crucial for understanding eukaryotes in general, and evolutionary protistology shows how the emphasis on understanding evolutionary phenomena through a phylogeny-based comparative approach constrains and underpins any more abstract account of why certain organismal features evolved in the early history of eukARYotes. Expand
New views on the megaclassification of life
TLDR
A novel classification system is introduced, including 5 dominions and 17 kingdoms, including all living beings with eukaryotic organization, and a new nomenclature of higher taxa has been proposed with a premise that the dominion names end with a suffix “-biota”. Expand
Clarifying the Taxonomic Identity of a Phylogenetically Important Group of Eukaryotes: Planomonas is a Junior Synonym of Ancyromonas
TLDR
The rationale for creating the new genus Planomonas is critique, reexamining the original sources and making additional observations using light and electron microscopy, and it is found that almost all the differences between the genera are mistaken or insubstantial. Expand

Evolution of the diatoms: V. Morphological and cytological support for the major clades and a taxonomic revision
TLDR
Phylogenetic reconstructions of the diatoms have been inferred with the 18S and 16S ribosomal RNA genes, and two new subdivisions are proposed (Coscinodiscophytina and Bacillariophytine) and a new class, the Mediophyceae for the bipolar centrics and the Thalassiosirales is proposed. Expand
Phylogenetic perspectives on basidiomycete systematics: evidence from the 18S rRNA gene
TLDR
A new class level taxonomy for basidiomycetees consisting of the Urediniomycetes emend. Expand
On the monophyly of chromalveolates using a six-protein phylogeny of eukaryotes.
TLDR
Overall support for much of the phylogenies is decreased over previous analyses that concatenated fewer genes for fewer taxa, Nevertheless, four of the six chromalveolate lineages consistently form a monophyletic assemblage, whereas the remaining two form a weakly supported group. Expand
The twilight of Heliozoa and rise of Rhizaria, an emerging supergroup of amoeboid eukaryotes.
TLDR
Combined small-subunit ribosomal RNA and actin sequence data for the three main groups of "Heliozoa" (Actinophryida, Centrohelida, and Desmothoracida), the heliozoan-like Sticholonche, and the radiolarian group Polycystinea provide solid evidence for the existence of the Rhizaria. Expand
Archiascomycetes: detection of a major new lineage within the Ascomycota
For phylogenetic analysis of the higher fungi, we sequenced the nuclear small subunit rRNA (18S rRNA) gene fromTaphrina populina, the type species of the genusTaphrina, andProtomycesExpand
Genetic Relationships between Desmothoracid Heliozoa and Gymnophryid Amoebas as Evidenced by Comparison of the Nucleotide Sequences of 18S rRNA Genes
TLDR
Findings cast doubt on the suggestion that centrohelid and desmothoracid Heliozoa are closely related to gymnophryid amoebas (with lamellar mitochondrial cristae), whereas desmothsionadea were classified as a taxon related to Cercomonadea. Expand
A new fungal phylum, the Glomeromycota: phylogeny and evolution * * Dedicated to Manfred Kluge (Tech
TLDR
The ecologically and economically important arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi, crucial in the ecology and physiology of land plants, and the endocytobiotic fungus, Geosiphon pyriformis, are phylogenetically analysed by their small subunit (SSU) rRNA gene sequences and placed into a new monophyletic phylum, the Glomeromycota. Expand
Morphology or molecules: How do we identify the major lineages of ciliates (Phylum Ciliophora)
TLDR
The ciliated protozoa (Phylum Ciliophora) have long been recognized as a monophyletic assemblage, and the two subphyla, the Postciliodesmatophora and the Intramacronucleata, and six classes are well supported by both molecules and morphology. Expand
Foraminifera and Cercozoa share a common origin according to RNA polymerase II phylogenies.
TLDR
A fragment of the largest subunit of the RNA polymerase II (RPB1) from five foraminiferans, two cercozoans and the testate filosean Gromia oviformis is sequenced and confirms a close relationship between Foraminifera and Cercozoa and points to Gromian as the closest relative of Foraminationifera. Expand
An updated view of kinetoplastid phylogeny using environmental sequences and a closer outgroup: proposal for a new classification of the class Kinetoplastea.
TLDR
A new classification of the class Kinetoplastea is proposed based on the results of the phylogenetic analysis presented, which supports the monophyly of groups that very often emerged as polyphyletic in the trees rooted using the traditional, distant outgroup sequences. Expand
