Laboratory growth rates of 6 species of fresh water gymnamoebia



Laboratory growth rates of 6 species of fresh water gymnamoebia



Oecologia 47(2): 156-159



Laboratory growth rates of 6 spp. of Gymnamoebia [Acanthamoeba polyphaga Puschkarew (Acanthamoebidae), Cochliopodium minus Page (Cochliopodidae), Glaeseria mira Glasser (Hartmannellidae), Saccamoeba limax Page (Hartmannellidae), Vannella sp. (Thecamoebidae) and Vexillifera bacillipedes Page (Paramoebidae)] isolated from English [UK] chalk streams and cultured on bacteria were determined at 4 different temperatures. Generation times ranged from 4.46-33.3 h. A linear relationship between log10 specific growth rate and the reciprocal of the absolute temperature was demonstrated for 4 spp. A significant regression of log10 generation time on log10 cell volume was obtained for data on amoebae in combination with data on ciliates taken from the literature. This regression may be used to predict the growth rates of other species of amoebae and ciliates of known cell volume.
