Abstract

P a r a m e c i u m is one of the most studied genera among ciliates. In particular, it is a model organism for investigation of the sibling species problem (also known as the cryptic species problem), spatial distribution, and its role in speciation. The global distribution of P a r a m e c i u m species and of sibling species belonging to the P. aurelia species complex (Ciliophora, Protista) still need study, e.g. sampling in some territories has been quite limited, while Europe has been investigated for years with the majority of the P. aurelia species isolated from here. The large territory of Yakutia (republic Sakha in the Russian Federation), known for its climate extremes and continuous permafrost that extended over several glacial and interglacial cycles of the Pleistocene, has not been studied before. In the present study we collected paramecia in the central part of Yakutia. Newly established strains were identified to species according to morphology and, in case of the P. aurelia complex, by crossi
