Arcellinids are lobose amoebae characterized by the presence of a shell (test). Testate amoebae reproduce by binary fission, and before each division a new test is formed. Different lineages present great diversity of test morphologies. The test can be secreted, agglutinated, and have diversechemical compositions. Recently, shells have gained a central role in different research areas, ...
The proposed project compares the morphometric variability of a microbial eukaryote in a natural environment and clonal cultures. We will examine 12 distinct lineages from a single morphospecies collected from a lake at Universidade de São Paulo, in two different moments of the year. The morphometric variability in microorganisms is used as a taxonomic character, however, there is reaso...
Shells (tests) are present in diverse eukaryotic lineages. Testate amoebae are a diverse polyphyletic group inside eukaryotes, comprising only shelled unicellular organisms. Despite the diverse field that studies testate amoebae we lack molecular information relating to testate amoebae's shell origin and evolution. Arcellinida is a monophyleic testate amoeba group inside Amoebozoa, a ke...
