How to identify an amoeba?   Ecology of amoebae  
 

Starting some work it is very dificult to accumulate a basic pool of literature. This section contains some references and several of my bibliographical databases. It is intended to help with the initial overview of gymnamoebae, but of course far does not exhaust the literature on this group of protists. I tried to list only these papers, which in my opinion are of real use in identification of naked amoebae.

Keys, monographs and basic papers (in the order of actuality):

  1. Page F.C. (1988): A New Key to Freshwater and Soil Gymnamoebae. Freshwater Biol. Ass., Ambleside.
  2. Page F.C. (1991): Nackte Rizopoda. In: Nackte Rizopoda Und Heliozoea (Protozoenfauna Band 2), pp. 3-170. Gustav Fisher Verlag, Stuttgart, New York.
  3. Page F.C. (1983): Marine Gymnamoebae. Institute of Terr. Ecology, Cambridge.
  4. Page F.C. (1987): The classification of 'naked' amoebae (Phylum Rhizopoda). Arch. Protistenk. 133, 199-217.
