Download Ecology of Protozoa: The Biology of Free-living Phagotropic by Tom Fenchel PDF

By Tom Fenchel

This ebook is written for ecologists and protozoologists. Ecologists who learn environments and biotic groups within which protozoa are im ponant may still locate this booklet specifically helpful. over the past decade it has develop into transparent that protozoa play very important roles in traditional eco platforms, yet few ecologists have a sense for the practical houses and the variety of those organisms. Protozoa pose or exemplify many normal difficulties of inhabitants and neighborhood ecology, and of evo lutionary biology. In so much respects the final ecological propenies of protozoa are usually not essentially diverse from these of bigger organisms; but, as a result of their small dimension, brief iteration occasions, and ubiquitous oc currence they generally current ecological phenomena in a brand new and dif ferent mild. To this could be extra that protozoa are well-suited for experimental paintings. regardless of those benefits, the research of protozoa has performed a comparatively modest function within the improvement of ecology and ev olutionary biology, basically, i feel, simply because so much ecologists are strange with those organisms. i'm hoping this publication will allure extra recognition to those favorable features of protozoa. I additionally desire that this booklet may perhaps make protozoologists conscious of new facets in their puppy organisms. for a very long time (that is, until eventually the joys damental contrast among prokaryotic and eukaryotic cells was once rec ognized) protozoa have been believed to symbolize the easiest kind of lifestyles. They have been accordingly broadly used for the experimental research of simple questions of telephone biology.
