Interactions among free-living prokaryotes and protists in microbial communities
Jirouchová, Kateřina ; Pánek, Tomáš (advisor) ; Fiala, Ivan (referee)
Protists and prokaryotes live in the natural environment in complex microbial communities whose members interact with each other. These communities consist of a few to many species that interact with each other in many ways such as predation/prey, ecto/endosymbiosis, parasitism, modulation of development or behaviour and harmful algicidal/bactericidal interactions, resulting in a complex network of interactions that influence structure of the microbial community as well as metabolism and behaviour of present species. This bachelor thesis is an overview of the interactions between free-living protists and prokaryotes within microbial communities, excluding well-studied interactions such as predation, parasitism, and ecto/endosymbiosis, while focusing on the diversity of lesser- known interactions, highlighting their importance and future research opportunities.
