Phylogeny, taxonomy, and astounding genetic diversity of glissomonadida ord. nov., the dominant gliding zooflagellates in soil (Protozoa: Cercozoa).
In a thorough overhaul of glissomonad taxonomy, 29 new species, new genera Sandona, Neoheteromita, Flectomonas, Allapsa, and Teretomonas are described, and morphologically distinctive families: Sandonidae, AllAPSidae, Bodomorphidae, and Proleptomonadidae are described. Expand
Oxnerella micra sp. n. (Oxnerellidae fam. n.), a tiny naked centrohelid, and the diversity and evolution of heliozoa.
Concatenated Bayesian 18S/28S rRNA phylogeny shows centrohelids weakly as sisters to the naked non-centrohelid heliozoan Microheliella maris (Microhelida: Heliozoa), and reclassify two Polyplacocystis, Luffisphaera, Phaeodaria and Rotosphaerida. Expand
Ultrastructure and molecular phylogeny of thaumatomonads (Cercozoa) with emphasis on Thaumatomastix salina from Oslofjorden, Norway.
The 18S rDNA phylogenetic tree suggests that Thaumatomastix is paraphyletic within the Thaumatomonadida clade, and there is no close affinity between T. salina and other cultured and sequenced strains, but it is closely related to a sequence obtained from environmental DNA. Expand
New genera, species, and improved phylogeny of Glissomonadida (Cercozoa).
A new strain from Oxfordshire grassland soil is the first reliably identified isolate of the virtually uniflagellate, smooth-gliding glissomonad genus, AllantionSandon, 1924, andPhylogenetic analysis and cytological features reveal Allanion to be a member of Allapsidae. Expand
Phylogeny and classification of phylum Cercozoa (Protozoa).
The protozoan phylum Cercozoa embraces numerous ancestrally biciliate zooflagellates, euglyphid and other filose testate amoebae, chlorarachnean algae, phytomyxean plant parasites, the animal-parasitic Ascetosporea, and Gromia. Expand
Distribution and population dynamics of Rhizobium sp. introduced into soil
The population dynamics of bacteria introduced into soil was studied and it was concluded that the microhabitats in natural soil rendered protection to biotic rather than to abiotic factors. Expand
First report of amphizoic amoebae isolated from edible Oyster mushroom- Pleurotus sajor-caju (Singer, 1949)
The present document serves as the first evidence that describes the presence of amphizoic amoebae in cap, stalk and internal tissues such as gills of the edible Oyster mushrooms, PleurotusExpand
An initial account of the terrestrial Protozoa of Ascension Island
There is evidence that compared to an area of contin ental land mass the protozoan fauna may be relatively species poor, however unlike the case with the macroscopic organisms, there is no evidence for endemic species on this island. Expand
Phylogeny of Heteromita, Cercomonas and Thaumatomonas based on SSU rDNA sequences, including the description of Neocercomonas jutlandica sp. nov., gen. nov.
Six new small subunit (SSU) ribosomal DNA sequences from the heterotrophic flagellate genera Cercomonas, Heteromita, and Thaumatomonas are presented and it is suggested that some of the members of the present genus Cercom onas should be placed in a new genus Neocer comonas gen. nov. Expand
Abiotic and biotic drivers underly short- and long-term soil respiration responses to experimental warming in a dryland ecosystem
Evaluating short and long-term soil respiration responses to warming as a mean to reduce the uncertainty in predicting the soil carbon – climate feedback in drylands showed that increased soilrespiration rates with short-term warming observed in areas with high biocrust cover returned to control levels in the long- term.
