Discovery of a kleptoplastic 'dinotom' dinoflagellate and the unique nuclear dynamics of converting kleptoplastids to permanent plastids
(Scientific Reports, 2019-07-19)
A monophyletic group of dinoflagellates, called ‘dinotoms’, are known to possess evolutionarily intermediate plastids derived from diatoms. The diatoms maintain their nuclei, mitochondria, and the ...
Taxonomy and diversity of a little-known diatom genus Simonsenia (Bacillariaceae) in the marine littoral: novel taxa from the Yellow Sea and the Gulf of Mexico
(Plant Ecology and Evolution, 2019-07-09)
Background and aims – The diatom genus Simonsenia has been considered for some time a minor taxon, limited in its distribution to fresh and slightly brackish waters. Recently, knowledge of its diversity ...
Metadata standards and practical guidelines for specimen and DNA curation when building barcode reference libraries for aquatic life
(Metabarcoding and Metagenomics (MBMG), 2021-02-26)
DNA barcoding and metabarcoding is increasingly used to effectively and precisely assess and monitor biodiversity in aquatic ecosystems. As these methods rely on data availability and quality of barcode ...
Ripe for reassessment: a synthesis of available molecular data for the speciose diatom family Bacillariaceae
(Molecular Phylogenetics and Evolution, 2020-10-13)
The Bacillariaceae is a very species-rich family of raphid diatoms and includes the large and taxonomically difficult genus Nitzschia, whose species are often small-celled and finely structured and have ...
