The alveolates (meaning "with cavities") are a group of protists, considered a major clade and superphylum within Eukarya, and are also called Alveolata.
Carl Linnaeus (23 May 1707 – 10 January 1778), also known after his ennoblement as Carl von LinnéBlunt (2004), p. 171.
The ciliates are a group of protozoans characterized by the presence of hair-like organelles called cilia, which are identical in structure to eukaryotic flagella, but are in general shorter and present in much larger numbers, with a different undulating pattern than flagella.
Endoplasm generally refers to the inner (often granulated), dense part of a cell's cytoplasm.
Eukaryotes are organisms whose cells have a nucleus enclosed within membranes, unlike Prokaryotes (Bacteria and other Archaea).
A helix, plural helixes or helices, is a type of smooth space curve, i.e. a curve in three-dimensional space.
The micrometre (International spelling as used by the International Bureau of Weights and Measures; SI symbol: μm) or micrometer (American spelling), also commonly known as a micron, is an SI derived unit of length equaling (SI standard prefix "micro-".
The Oligohymenophorea are a large class of ciliates.
Peristome (from the Greek peri, meaning 'around' or 'about', and stoma, 'mouth') is an anatomical feature that surrounds an opening to an organ or structure.
The peritrichs (Latin: Peritrichia) are a large and distinctive group of ciliates.
Sar or Harosa (informally the SAR supergroup) is a clade that includes stramenopiles (heterokonts), alveolates, and Rhizaria.
Sessilida is the largest order of the peritrich ciliates.
In zoological nomenclature, a type species (species typica) is the species name with which the name of a genus or subgenus is considered to be permanently taxonomically associated, i.e., the species that contains the biological type specimen(s).
Vorticella is a genus of bell-shaped ciliates that have stalks to attach themselves to substrates.
The protozoon Vorticella campanula is found in freshwater ponds, lakes, rivers, and streams with aquatic vegetation.
