Scope and Contents

Plates created for the following publication: Author(s): Stout, J D (John David) Title: Morphogenesis in the ciliate Bresslaua vorax Kahl and the phylogeny of the Colpodidae. Source: Journal of Protozoology, 7 (1): 26-35 1960 (continued as Journal of Eukaryotic Microbiology) ISSN: 0022-3921 URL: DOI: 10.1111/j.1550-7408.1960.tb00703.x Soil Bureau Publication No. 175. Abstract: Bresslaua vorax is a dimorphic ciliate with micro-stome and macrostome forms. The development of the macro-stome form is associated with pronounced extension of the vestibule and vestibular opening and gross torsion of the ciliate which finally shows little resemblance to the microstome form. These transformations culminate a phylogenetic trend in the Colpodidae which can be followed from the ciliates of relatively simple structure, such as Woodruffia, through Bryophrya, Colpoda and Tillina to Bresslaua. This phylogenetic trend is marked by the increasing importance of stomatogenesis.
