The Ciliated Protozoa: Characterization, Classification, and by Denis H. Lynn (eds.)

By Denis H. Lynn (eds.)

The 3rd variation of The Ciliated Protozoa keeps the cutting edge procedure of the former variants, completely documenting the development in our knowing of the evolutionary diversification of those generally disbursed eukaryotic microorganisms.

The Glossary is significantly revised and elevated, serving as an illustrated ‘subject index’ of greater than seven-hundred phrases. An advent to the phylum is through chapters at the eleven sessions. each one classification bankruptcy comprises 7 sections:

  • taxonomic constitution
  • life historical past and ecology
  • somatic buildings
  • oral buildings
  • division and morphogenesis
  • nuclei, sexuality, and lifestyles cycle
  • other good points

The ebook comprises new information at the ultrastructure of the somatic cortex of every classification, molecular phylogenetics, ecology, and on different very important facets of ciliate biology. those new information are used, in addition to a unique conceptual strategy, to rationalize a brand new procedure of type for the phylum, offered in a massive bankruptcy on The CiliateTaxa. The ebook contains an updated bibliography of roughly 3,000 citations to either the ‘classical’ and up to date literature, and either a Subject Index and a Systematic Index.

This specified and well timed publication will function a accomplished and authoritative reference paintings for college students, lecturers, and researchers who've an curiosity within the protozoa, and especially the ciliates.

As an extra function, all figures can be found electronically at no cost viewing at the book's homepage at www.springer.com/978-1-4020-8238-2, lower than Additional Information.

Xxxiii Chapter 1 Introduction and Progress in the Last Half Century Abstract The history of ciliate systematics has been divided into five periods: (1) the Age of Discovery; (2) the Age of Exploitation; (3) the Age of Infraciliature; (4) the Age of Ultrastructure; and (5) the Age of Refinement. Progress in each of these periods arose through an interaction of technology and conceptual views. For example, refined silver staining techniques revealed the law of desmodexy of the ciliate cortex and enabled the development of comparative morphogenetics in the Age of Infraciliature.

Brood Pouch: temporary in some suctorians or permanent in some chonotrichs internal chamber or cavity formed by invagination of the pellicle and within which budding occurs, producing the larval form in the life cycle; preferably called a crypt in chonotrichs; also known as an embryo sac or marsupium (BPch, Fig. 11Cb). Brosse: distinctive “brush” of clavate cilia arising from specialized short kineties or kinetal segments, often oriented obliquely to the body axis on the anterodorsal surface of the nondividing organism; characteristically found in haptorian litostomes and prorodontine prostomes.
