- Perkinsozoa, a well-known marine protozoan flagellate parasite group, newly identified in lacustrine systems: a review. Mangot, Jean-Fran�ois; Debroas, Didier; Domaizon, Isabelle // Hydrobiologia;Jan2011, Vol. 659 Issue 1, p37
The recurrent detection of parasitic zoospores among aquatic heterotrophic flagellates (HFs) has recently modified our view of how the microbial loop is organized, and called into question the role of eukaryotic parasites in the aquatic trophic food web. The Perkinsozoa group, already known to...
