cells can meet, mingle genes and remain only two cells.
The following infectious agents were observed on slides: viruses (Viral gametocyte hypertrophy), Rickettsia/Chlamydia/Mycoplasma (rickettsia-like organisms, RLOs), ciliates
(Ancistrocomidae) on the gills and in the stomach/intestine, xenomas (Sphenophrya-like ciliates
), Sprague's Gregarines, Haplosporidium nelsoni (MSX), Nematopsis ostrearum, Turbellaria and Hexamita nelsoni, the average prevalences of each at each site are presented in Table 1.
The results revealed that the frequency of gene transfer between bacteria exposed to ciliates
increased significantly (p < 0.
After considering all the experimental data obtained throughout the study, it appears that the ciliate
protists used in our work is a material of choice for studies in toxicology and occupies a privileged position in aquatic ecosystems because it is one of the basic elements of food chain, hence the need for a deep study of the impact of pollution on our environment.
The most common taxa were nematodes, rotifers, ciliates
, testate amoebae, and harpacticoids.
Association of methanogenic bacteria with rumen ciliates
A SURVEY OF CILIATES
IN A SMALL TRIBUTARY TO SHADES CREEK, JEFFERSON COUNTY, ALABAMA, USING ENVIRONMENTAL SAMPLING.
Single-celled organisms with a complex internal structure that move by the beating of many short hair- like projections on the surface of the cell.
In both the 2010 and 1965 study, bacteria, flagellates, nematodes, and the smaller ciliates
were not identified or counted.
Structure and seasonal dynamics of the protozoan community (heterotrophic flagellates, ciliates
, amoeboid protozoa) in the plankton of a large river (river Danube, Hungary).
Testate amoebae and ciliates
were enumerated by exhaustive examination of 3 ml (50 [micro]l subsamples per observation) of aqueous-suspended soil samples fixed with 2% TEM grade gfutaraldehyde and stained with Lugol's iodine (Anderson, 2008).
Contractility and its control in peritrich ciliates
With special emphasis on the new unicellular microorganisms, contributors cover amoebae, apicomplexans, ciliates
, flagellates, protozoan pathogens of major medical importance, protozoan biology and host response.
Baldock BM: Peritrich ciliates
epizoic on larvae of Brachycentrus subnubilus (Trichoptera): importance in relation to the total protozoan population in streams.
The current paper partly aims to fulfill this gap of knowledge by studying the influence of peritrich ciliates
as epibionts on mesozooplankton in the Gulf of Riga.
