1 Dolan, John R; David J. S. Montagnes, Sabine Agatha, D. Wayne Coats & Diane K. Stoecker (editors) The Biology and Ecology of Tintinnid Ciliates: Models for Marine Plankton
0470671513 / 9780470671511 New
 
2012. 26cm. Pp.344. Hardbound

Planktonic protists both produce and consume most of the primary production in the world ocean. They not only play key roles in the oceans but also represent an astounding amount of diversity: ecological morphological and genetic. However, for most taxa their ecology, morphology, phylogeny and biogeography are either poorly known or appear to be largely unrelated to one another; this hinders our understanding of their biology as well as interpretation of emerging genetic data.

Tintinnid ciliates represent a singular exception. Compared to nearly all other groups of planktonic protists, there is a very substantial and relatively detailed literature (both modern and historical) on tintinnids.

The Biology and Ecology of Tintinnid Ciliates synthesizes knowledge concerning a wide variety of topics ranging from anatomy and systematics, physiology, behavior, ecology (including ecological roles, predators, parasites, biogeography, and cysts) to fossil history.
