Reproductive isolation is demonstrated between morphologically distinct, sympatric demes of four epipelic diatom species inhabiting a small pond. The six demes ofSellaphora pupula, four of them allogamous, one probably autogamous, and one apparently asexual, differ morphologically with respect to size, shape, stria density and pattern. In the pond,Caloneis silicula, Cymatopleura solea, andNeidium ampliatum each contain two allogamous demes, differing principally in size. There are intrinsic…

3. Biodiversity, biogeography and conservation of diatoms
Recent morphometric and breeding studies of diatoms show that the present species classification is too coarse and hides significant diversity. Many species are subdivided into phenodemes, which
Ecological variation within Sellaphora species complexes (Bacillariophyceae): specialists or generalists?
TLDR
To test whether semi- and pseudo-cryptic Sellaphora species are ecologically differentiated with respect to trophic status, tools recently developed in the UK in response to the EU Water Framework Directive (WFD) were used.
Molecular species discovery in the diatom Sellaphora and its congruence with mating trials
TLDR
Investigation of the species limits of morphologically similar small-celled strains of the model diatom Sellaphora from the United Kingdom and Australia finds no simple metrics or presence/absence characters that could consistently separate all species of the auldreekie complex, even though some do differ in pole width or stria density.
Diatom identification in the face of changing species concepts and evidence of phenotypic plasticity
TLDR
Some of the problems of evaluating variation between clonal populations, the influence of findings from molecular biology and reproductive studies on the interpretation of morphology and species concepts, and some of the implications for ecological and palaeo-ecological studies using diatoms are considered.
New Species and Combinations in the Diatom Genus Sellaphora (Sellaphoraceae) from Southeastern United States
TLDR
Three new species are described here and two new combinations are made in Sellaphora species from rivers and springs of the southeastern United States, which usually have low relative abundances in river samples.
Life history and systematics of Petroneis (Bacillariophyta), with special reference to British waters
TLDR
Molecular phylogenetic analysis of selected raphid diatoms, based on rbcL sequences, indicates that Petroneis and Lyrella are sister genera and supports their separation into the family Lyrellaceae, order Lyrellales.
Genetic variation in the diatomFragilaria capucina (Fragilariaceae) along a latitudinal gradient across North America
TLDR
Genetic variation in 126 clones of the planktonic diatom,Fragilaria capucina, collected from seven lakes from Manitoba to Texas, was determined by RAPD analysis, which showed that most clones grouped together according to the site from which they were collected.
Experimental studies on sexual reproduction in diatoms.
TLDR
Un unsolved problems in the life history of diatoms are identified, including aspects of sexualization, cell-cell recognition, sexual reproduction, and the development of the special expanding cell (the auxospore), which is crucial to morphogenesis in this group.
Revision of the diatom genus Sellaphora: a first account of the larger species in the British Isles.
TLDR
The phenodemes of S. pupula sensu lato cannot be equated with the infraspecific taxa previously recorded for the British Isles and both these and most other pre-1990 records of species now assigned to Sellaphora must be regarded as having very little value for ecological and biogeographical purposes.
An assessment of cryptic genetic diversity within the Cyclotella meneghiniana species complex (Bacillariophyta) based on nuclear and plastid genes, and amplified fragment length polymorphisms
TLDR
It is suggested that Cyclotella meneghiniana is a complex of several, reproductively isolated, sexual species, rather than acomplex of either strictly self-fertilizing or clonal lineages.

The diatom genus Sellaphora: Separation from Navicula
TLDR
The genus Sellaphora Mereschkowsky is resurrected to include those naviculoid diatoms with an H-shaped plastid containing an invaginated pyrenoid and gametangia that produce one gamete apiece and remain closely associated throughout meiosis and plasmogamy, without any obvious mucilage envelope around them.

There is an obvious correlation between the occurrence of a localized holdfast and the formation of colonies in Achnanthes hungarica, except the mode of fastening to the substrate.
