Diversity of free-living ciliates in the sandy sediment of a Spanish stream in winter

Article English OPEN
Finlay, B.; Tellez, C.; Esteban, Genoveva;

This study had two objectives: to determine the number of (phenotypic) ciliate species co-existing in 1 m2 of sandy\ud river sediment at a maximum temperature of 4 "C; and to determine the ecological mechanism(s) facilitating their\ud co-existence. The ciliate community... View more
