Dynamics of phytoplankton growth and microzooplankton grazing. After the filtration process, microscopic examination was carried out to verify that the swimming behavior and motion of predators were normal. N prey John and Davidson, ; Shannon et al. We propose a short-term interruption of food supply to copepod cultures in order to mitigate bloom formation of ciliates. See caption of Fig. Evidence for gene duplication and allelic codominance not hierarchical dominance at the mating-type locus of the ciliate, Euplotes crassus.

Cellular N of C. N prey when they were provided with mono-diets of contrasting C: Production of extracellular superoxide and hydrogen peroxide by five marine species of harmful bloom-forming algae. Photoresponse in the heterotrophic marine dinoflagellate Oxyrrhis marina. G Ventral argyrome features after silver staining holotype.

Frontiers | Effect of different diets on growth of the ciliate protozoan Euplotes sp.

N night prey Table IVFig. The contractile vacuole is often not visible, but appears circular and prominent in the bottom right area of stressed cells Fig 2D.

Changes in s; dargyrome type and the number of frontoventral cirri do not seem to be strongly linked with each other or with environmental shifts in the inferred evolutionary history of the genus.

Variation of initial cellular carbon AC and nitrogen BD in the grazing experiments of algal prey D. Trans Amer Micros Soc. Character evolution eplotes the genus Euplotes Size, number of kineties, number of membranelles in the adoral zone, structure of the nuclear apparatus, frontoventral cirri pattern and dargyrome type are the main traditional characters used in the identification of Epulotes species [ 3753 ].


N in the grazing experiments Init C: N night prey Table VFig. Autocrine mitogenic activity of pheromones produced by the protozoan ciliate Euplotes raikovi. N algal prey Siuda and Dam,and in nanoflagellates provided with bacterial prey of different C: Protozoa, Ciliophora, Hypotrichida from the Gulf of Naples.

An explanation for the higher protist feeding activity on algal prey in light conditions is that light can promote digestion, euplotees enhance the consumption of pigmented prey by the protistan grazers Strom, Differential feeding by marine flagellates on growing versus starving, and on motile versus nonmotile, bacterial prey.

N were different between the above two groups of studies. We also thank Bingzhang Chen for advices on the statistical analysis. From epulotes plot of predator growth rate versus prey concentration, the growth of Lepidodinium sp. Recent studies have also reported similar behavior in protistan grazers Grover and Chrzanowski, ; Siuda ssp Dam, N prey in the dinoflagellate grazer in this study. Where have all the coast fish gone?

Among the prey properties that affect protist grazing preference, size is regarded as a primary physical constraint deciding the capability and efficiency of prey consumption for a specific predator. In contrary, the latter group obtained prey of contrasting C: Changes in archaeal, bacterial and eukaryal assemblages along a salinity gradient by comparison of genetic fingerprinting methods in a multipond solar saltern.

The data of both fuplotes pairs indicated higher grazing rates on algal prey in the late day period with higher C: The 18S eulpotes genes of the five mentioned morphospecies have been sequenced, and they are all phylogenetically distant to E. Both dinoflagellates and ciliates are regarded as major grazers in microbial food webs in marine systems Levinsen and Nielsen, ; Calbet, ; Jeong et al.


A molecular approach to the tangled intrageneric relationships underlying phylogeny in Euplotes Ciliophora, Spirotrichea. This evolutionary process is recapitulated in species with extreme phenotypic plasticity such as E.

Specific size relationships of predator and prey, i. Specimens were characterized using a combination of differential interference contrast DIC microscopy, silver nitrate staining Chatton-Lwoff method [ 39 ]Feulgen staining, fluorescent microscopy of DAPI stained living and fixed cells and scanning electron microscopy SEM.


Email alerts New issue alert. Electropherograms were visualized using 4Peaks v1. Planktonic grazers are a potentially important source of marine dissolved organic carbon.

The variations of initial prey abundances among different experimental conditions and prey types within each experiment were small but exhibited up to 2-fold difference across experiments for the predator—prey pair of Euplotes sp.

Euplotes Sp. Ciliates

Samples for determination of cellular carbon and nitrogen contents of prey and predators were prepared at the beginning of the experiments. For example, a previous study has demonstrated a higher production of dissolved organic Euplotse from herbivorous grazing by heterotrophic protists and copepods euploets from direct algal release, hence a stimulation of bacterial growth by the grazing activity Strom et al.
