What are some characteristics of protists? Eukaryotic Diverse Unicellular Classified by nutrition Larger than prokaryotes
What are the different types of protists? Animal-Like Protists/Protozoans Fungus-Like Protists Plant-Like Protists
What are the characteristics of Animal-like protists? eat other organisms
What are the characteristics of Fungus-like protists? absorb nutrients from other live/dead organisms
What are the characteristics of plant-like protists photosynthesize
What are the different types of animal-like protists? Cercozoans/Phylum Cercozoa Ciliates/Phylum Ciliophora Flagellates/Phylum Zoomastigina Sporozoans: Phylum Sporozoa
What are the characteristics of Ciliates? have cilia covering entire body used for locomotion and obtaining food ie. paramecium
What are the characteristics of flagellates? have a hard protective covering have 1/1+ flagella for movement free living/mutual relations/parasitic ie. in digestive tract of termites to digest cellulose
What are the characteristics of sporozoans? parasites of animals ie. malaria
What are the different types of fungus-like protists? plasmodial slime moulds cellular slime moulds water moulds
What are the characteristics of plasmodial slime mould? tiny slug like visible to unaided eye engulfs small particles into their cytoplasm many nuclei
What are the characteristics of cellular slime mould? engulfs small particles releases a chemical causing them to gather into a pseudoplasmodium when food is scarce
What are the characteristics of water moulds? filamentous live on dead organic matter Extends threads into host's tissues, releases enzymes and absorbing nutrients
What are the types of plant-like protists? diatoms dinoflagellates euglenoids
What are the characteristics of diatoms? phytoplankton photosynthetic unicellular diverse abundant rigid cell walls with an outer layer of silica food source for other organisms
what are the characteristics of dinoflagellates? 2 flagella at right angles to each other moves with a twirling motion reproduces quickly in favourable conditions causing algal bloom may have a mutual relationship with corals giving it its colour
What are the impacts of algal bloom? causes red tides produces a toxin that accumulates in plankton eating shell fish may be fatal to humans
What are the characteristics of euglenoids? found in shallow fresh water have flagella autotrophs in light, heterotrophs in dark light-sensitive organs
What are the characteristics of Cercozoans? No cell wall has pseudopods for locomotion and food free living or parasitic
