Dear Colleagues,

I am working on benthic protozoa (Aufwuchs) in running waters. Recently
I am looking for informations on interspecific competition between
Ciliates (esp. Peritrichida like Carchesium polypinum or Vorticella
campanula)and Flagellates (heterotrophic Nanoflagellates). I would like
to know, if there is competition on food ressources, esp. Bacteria. I am
also interested in other kinds of competition between these groups of
organisms. I would be grateful for some hints where to find publications
on these subject and  for any information on this subject.

Thank You in advance
