Diversity of silica-scaled protists

Abstract:

This thesis investigates the diversity of two silica-scaled protist groups, Paraphysomonadida and Thaumatomonadida by light and electron microscopical observations and sequencing (rDNA) on novel clonal cultures. Despite these groups of protist dominating pelagic, littoral as well as inland freshwater and soil habitats, they are taxonomically poorly understood to the extent that any progress in ecological theory is hampered. Now that environmental DNA sequencing is being carried out faster ...
