Protist and Fungi

Biology Quiz

What is Kindom Protista Very Diverse; any eukaryoke that is NOT plant, animal, fungi or bacteria
Most Protista are Unicellular
Few Protista are Multicellular
All Protista are Eukaryotes
How are Protista classified How they obtain nutrition
Animal Like Protist are Heterotrophs
Plant Like Protist are Autotrophs
Fungus Like Protist are Decomposers
Animal Like Protist are free- living, some are parasitic (Cause Malaria, African sleeping sickness)
Examples of Animal Like Protist Paramecium
Examples of Animal Like Protist Amoeba
Examples of Plant Like Protist Euglena
Examples of Plant Like Protist Unicellular algae
Examples of Plant Like Protist red, brown and green algae- Multicellular
What is Unicellular algae Provides a source of nourishment for other organisms
What is Multicellular red, brown and green algae
What is the presence of chloroplast Producer, autotroph
What is the method of movement flagellum, whip like tail
What is the eyespot Light sensitive - moves organism toward light for photosynthesis
What does Paramecium contains Cell membrane, cytoplasm, cilia, contractile vacuole
What does Amoeba contains Cell membrane, contractile, vacuole,cytoplasm, nucleus, pseudopod
What does Euglena contains cell membrane, cytoplasm, chloroplast,flagellum, eyespot, nucleus, contractile, vacuole
Presence of chloroplast has producer, autotroph
What is the method of movement flagellum, whip like tail
What is eyespot Light sensitive - moves organism toward light for photosynthesis
Kingdom Protist Beneficial - The outer covering of some protist form hard silica shell = diatoms used toothpaste and scouring powder
Kingdom Protist Beneficial is Plankton Food source for other organisms
Kingdom Protist Beneficial is Algae Used to make thickener for foods
Kingdom Protist Harmful - Some protist produce a red pigment, too many protist cause what? Red tide (harmful to fish)
Kingdom Protist Harmful Mosquito - borne infecctious disease caused by Protist is Malaria
Kingdom Protist Harmful -Algal bloom is enormous mass of algae - covers ponds, uses up O2 and kills fish
Kingdom Protist Harmful - Naegleria fowleri is Killer amoeba
Few Kingdom Fungi are Unicellular
Kingdom Fungi all have cell walls made of chittin (not cellulose like plants)
Kingdom Fungi are plant like Can't move about BUT they cannot make their own food - no choroplast, not green
Most Kingdom Fungi are multicellular are Multicellular
All Kingdon Fungi are heterotrophs
Kingdom Fungi can be Parasites
Kingdom Fungi can be Saprophytes
Parasites obtain food from living organisms
Saprophytes obtain food from dead organisms
Kingdom Fungi obtain Nutrition by Releasing digestive enzymes on organic material and absorbing nutrients.
Kingdom Fungi Example: Bread Molds contain Spores, hypha (plhyphae), fruiting, mycelium (not Roots)
Kingdom Fungi example mushrooms contain Spores Fruiting body, Stalk, mycelium
Kindom Fungi example: yeast is Unicellular
Kingdom Example Ringworm and Athletes foot (parasites)
Lichens symbiotic relationship between Fungus and Algae
Fungus provides moisture, algae provides food Mutualism - both benefit
cMychorrhizae symbiotic relationship between Fungas and plant roots
How does Fungus helps Roots absorb moisture and nutrients, roots provide fungus with products of photosynthesis
Kingdom fungus food beneficial mushroom, Yeast, cheese
Kingdom fungus medicines beneficial penicillin
Kingdom Fungus decomposers beneficial recycle nutrients back into soil for plants
Kingdom Fungus Plant Diseases Harmful Smuts, rust, mildew
Kingdom Fungus Human Diseases Harmful Ringworm, athlete's foot
