Evaluation and sensitivity analysis of diatom DNA metabarcoding for WFD bioassessment of Mediterranean rivers
(Science of The Total Environment, 2020-04-04)
Our study of 164 diatom samples from Catalonia (NE Spain) is the first to evaluate the applicability of DNA metabarcoding, based on high throughput sequencing (HTS) using a 312-bp rbcL marker, for ...
Nitzschia fenestralis: A new diatom species abundant in the Holocene sediments of an eastern African crater lake
Nitzschia is common in the phytoplankton of several East African lakes. A new species, Nitzschia fenestralis, sp. nov. D. Grady, D.G. Mann et Trobajo was encountered at numerous depths in a 16 m sediment ...
Not all nudibranchs are carnivorous: trophic ecology of Polycerella emertoni in the Ebro Delta
(Marine Ecology Progress Series (MEPS), 2020-07-09)
Nudibranchs have always been regarded as a group of specialized predators. In Alfacs Bay (Ebro Delta, Spain), the cryptic nudibranch Polycerella emertoni is found associated with the pseudo-indigenous ...
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 ...
A polyphasic approach to the study of the genus Nitzschia (Bacillariophyta): three new planktonic species from the Adriatic Sea
(Journal of Phycology, 2020-10-21)
The paraphyletic diatom genus Nitzschia comprises over 1000 morphologically distinct pennate taxa, known from the benthos and plankton of freshwater, brackish and marine environments. The principal ...
