It is well known that microbial community structure is sensitive to oxygen levels (Layboum-Parry and Pearce, 2007), and some ciliate groups (including Plagiopyla, Sonderia, Parablepharisma, Metopus, Caenomorpha, and Odontostomatida) have been reported as obligate anaerobes, while others (ie.g., Remanella and Loxodes) are microaerophiles (Finlay and Fenchel, 1989; Fenchel and Finlay, 1991).
