Among all these morphospecies, the species Euplotes aediculatus, Euplotes eurystomus, Spirostomum minus and Spirostomum teres, and Paramecium bursaria, Paramecium caudatum and Tetmemena pustulata were the ones that best adapted to the in vitro growth conditions (up to several months) using mineral water and rice grains and Cerophyl medium (Sonneborn, 1957), respectively (data not shown).
Among the 48 morphospecies found in the stream Jose Pereira, 23 are included in the saprobic system and are considered biomarkers (Table 1), in which the vast majority were indicative of organically enriched environments (polluted or extremely polluted water), such as Loxodes striatus, Spirostomum teres, Paramecium caudatum, Euplotes aediculatus, Euplotes eurystomus, Tokophrya lemnarum, Cyclidium cf.

Jordan (1877b:355-357) listed a total of seven species from this locality, of which one, Photogenis eurystomus
(= Cyprinella venusta eurystoma), was described as new.

Hubbs and Bailey, the Widemouth Blindcat 6 (1978).
Omnivores, or primary consumers of autotrophs, decomposers, and/or detritivores, consisted of the ciliates Euplotes eurystomus
(consuming primarily autotrophs and detritivores), Paramecium aurelia (consuming primarily decomposers and some autotrophs), Pa.
Moreover, only six complete mitochondrial genome sequences (Eurystomus

Bird Density in Shrub Patches: The density analysis for the shrub patches habitat revealed that Pink-necked Green Pigeon - Treron vernans (19.99 +- 4.52 birds/ha), Scaly-breasted Munia - Lonchura punctulata (17.18 +- 5.21 birds/ha), Peaceful Dove - Geopelia striata (11.18 +- 2.83 birds/ha), Black-headed Munia - Lonchura malacca (7.96 +- 2.67 birds/ha) and Dollar Bird - Eurystomus
orientalis (7.88 +- 2.99 birds/ha) was the most dominant bird species in this habitat.
and Spirostomum teres Clapere et Lachmann, 1958 are indicators of polysaprobic environments; Euplotes eurystomus
Wrzesmiowski, 1870, Podophrya fixa, Stentor coeruleus and Tokophrya lenarum of alfa-mesosaprobic environments; Coleps sp., Spirostomum minus and Stentor polymorphus Ehrenberg, 1830 of alpha-mesosaprobic to beta-mesosaprobic environments; Frontonia leucas, Urocentrum turbo and Stylonychia pustulata of beta-mesosaprobic environments; and Halteria sp., which indicates oligosaprobic to alpha-mesosaprobic environments (Table 1).
Other important endemic species include the broad-billed roller (Eurystomus
orientalis irisi), whose population has declined notably in the last five years.
For example, Jack and Gilbert (1993) found maximum growth rates of 0.87 per day for the oligotrich ciliate Strobilidium gyrans (Stokes, 1887), and 0.86 per day for Euplotes eurystomus
(Wrzesniowski, 1870) feeding on a cryptomonad algae at a temperature of 20 [degrees]C.
