Taxonomy of free-living protozoa

Our studies on the evolution, biogeography or ecology of protozoa have depended on descriptive taxonomy. Protsville has been associated with about 200 new or combinations of names of protozoa. Most of these are heterotrophic flagellates, but our activities embrace free-living amoebae, heliozoa and ciliates and a few endosymbionts. The new names include .... The sources of the names can be found in the Publications section.
