Welcome to Ciliophora
This web site is intended as a developmental platform that will contain descriptions and images of ciliated protozoa in an updated taxonomy. The data will be extracted from accepted manuscripts that will be marked up for data mining. Several sociological and a few technical issues need to be resolved, specifically how we manage the question of credit and citation when content elements are mixed on a page. Although the site is experimental, the data it contains are accurate and are taken from recent peer-reviewed research.
For the benefit of search engines, the phylum Ciliophora Doflein, 1901 is also known as Ciliata, ciliated protozoa or protists, Infusoria and Animalicules.
