Abstract: Background: In this paper, we verified the changes in species composition of the ciliate community inhabiting phytotelmata of tank bromeliads in response to seasonality (rainfall). Plants were located at several heights of a great rocky wall on the left bank of the Parana River, southern Brazil. We also assessed if the heights of the plants in relation to the river influence the ciliate species composition. Thus, samplings were performed in the dry and rainy seasons, in three layers of the rock walls (lower, m… Show more

“…However, ciliate communities recorded in this study might not have included sessile or thigmotactic species as a result of the employed sampling methodology, the small plant sizes with low volumes of water and the impediment of plant removal from their habitats. The number of plants where active ciliates were absent was higher in comparison to the results of Buosi et al's work [18,19] in bromeliads along the margins of the Paraná River in South Brazil. In spite of the presence of impounded water in almost all the plants, with the exception of nine bromeliads in the dry tropical forest, the richness of active ciliates was lower, in comparison to the 92 species observed in Aechmea distichantha [18,19], with 13 species on average per plant, meanwhile only an average of 1.43 species per plant was recorded in the present study.…”

Lower richness values were recorded by Busse et al [22] in Quesnelia arvensis Mez.…”
