...Nicola S. Heckeberg; Philip S. L. Anderson; Emily J. Rayfield ABSTRACT Extreme phenotypic polymorphism is an oft-cited example of evolutionary theory in practice. Although these morphological variations are assumed to be adaptive, few studies have biomechanically tested such hypotheses. Pyrenestes...

...Heidi K. Grønlien; Bjarne Hagen; Olav Sand SUMMARY Ciliates feed by phagocytosis. Some ciliate species, such as Tetrahymena vorax , are polymorphic, a strategy that provides more flexible food utilization. Cells of the microstomal morph of T. vorax feed on bacteria, organic particles and organic...
