The tintinnids are shelled cells that are very diverse but all fill a niche in the pelagic ecosystem as grazers near the base of the food web feeding on nanoplankton, for the most part. Biologists discuss the tintinnid lorica, systematics and evolution, ecophysiology and behavior, predators, parasites, the comparative biology of tintinnid cysts, fossil tintinnids, microzooplankton communities, and diversity and distribution.
