Protozoa

Parent Category: Microbiology
Protozoans are unicellular organisms found in many different habitats. They are eukaryotic and can be predators, herbivores or parasites, depending upon the species. The well-known disease malaria is caused by a protozoa.
Pseudopods which translates to fake feet.   Hope this helps!
The Euglena are unicellular organisms with  flagella. These flagella are long whip-like tails  used for movement
Yes,as eukaryotes they have several organelles which includes at  least one nucleus which contains most of the cell's DNA
Macrophages, or white blood cells. They project pseudopods just  like an amoeba would.
yes.Paramecium is a eukariyotes.All eukariyuotes have mitochondria
A paramecium cell is in act a protozoa. It is actually a ciliate protozoa.
Paramecium belongs to the genus unicellular ciliate protozoa. It is  in the Eukarya Kingdom and the Protista Phylum is Ciliophora.
cilia that surrounds the paramecium serves as their mode of movementn.
Yes A flagellum, also called undulipodium, is a whip-like structure used for locomotion, for feeding or other purposes. Almost all organisms have flagella to include protozoa (at some stage in their lives). We humans have them in our bodies. Even our own spermatozoa can be regarded as flagellates....
A paramecium is shaped like the sole or bottom of a lady's slipper.
The correct answer is Proteus Animalcule. A scientific name for an  Amoeba is "Acanthamoeba polyphaga."   Amoebas do not form a single taxonomic group. They are found in  every major lineage of eukaryotic organisms. They are found among  protozoa, fungi, animals, and algae.
Protozoa is a eukaryote that eats bacteria, algae, or even other protozoa.
it is unicellular
NO i dont think so
Amoebas move by changing the shape of their body, forming pseudopods (temporary foot-like structures). The word pseudopod means "false foot."
Amoeba are single-celled and very small so naturally they would eat bacteria, algae, and other protozoa. But you should also consider the fact that some are parasites.
no because its an ice cream ha ha ha
Plasmodium is a sporozoan that causes Malaria.
Pseudopods serve two important functions-locomotion and food capture, activities that are often interrelated. Amoebas use their pseudopods to ingest food by a method called phagocytosis (Greek: phagein, to eat).The streaming of protoplasm inside the pseudopods moves the amoeba forward. When the...
It is a consumer because it uses its cilia to sweep food into its gullet.
The function of the pyrenoid in euglena is to produce and supply  starch. A pyrenoid is an organelle and it is considered an algae.
amoeba has following general characteristics;they are unicellular organisms movement by pseudopodiamode of nutrition is phagocytosismay vary in size from 10-20micrometrehabitat ;marine and fresh watersome may be pathogenic
yer mom's blue waffle...
They have a flagellum, chloroplast, and spores. Because they are single celled organisms, they do not have a nucleus. Their chloroplast contain chlorophyll A and B which gives them the green pigment. The flagellum allows the eulgena to propel and to detect the light (needed for photosynthesis) and...
The amoeba moves its psuedopodia (false feet) around the food particle. thus a food vacuole is formed.then the amoeba secretes digestive enzymes into the food vacuole and the food particle is digested and assimilated.the waste particle is thrown out by moving the particle towards the surface of the...
No, they are a form of unicellular protists
They are unicellular organisms posessing two flagella and a photoreceptor. Most of them have chloroplasts, and the plasma membrane is surrounded by a flexible layer (the pelicle) that flexes for movement
both cells, both orginisms, and both have chloroplast
Euglena can be classified as Protist or algae.
Paramecia feed on microorganisms like bacteria, algae, and yeasts. To gather food, the Paramecium uses its cilia to sweep prey organisms, along with some water, through the oral groove, and into the mouth opening.

I'd like to issue a disclaimer that I am not a medical professional, just an HIV community educator and counselor.HIV (Human Immunodeficiency Virus) is the virus that causes AIDS (Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome.)Individuals infected with HIV may become more apt to develop infections as their...
The kingdom of Euglena is protista.
Euglena are not warm blooded animals, however they need to stay warm to live. They also can live inside of a warm blooded animal.
Some of the general characteristics of protozoa's are that they  move independently and usually lack the capability of  photosynthesis. Protozoa's are eukaryotic microorganisms.
It is a protozoa and is the microbe that is carried by mosquitoes in tropical areas and causes malaria.
  they absorb it through there skin
It goes to china floats down the nile river finds a scroll with writing telling him to go to newyork get on a plane fly to australia go too the zoo hop into a kangaroo pouch and eat the babys earwax and boogers!! hope that helped!
bye byhe the type of protist is also know as a anmail like protasr
  == Euglena have an eyespot that acts as a shield for a light sensitive receptor. ==
You can't. An algae is a type of protozoa, and they are classified under the kingdom protista.
yes it is unique in its own ways
They both make energy using the sun
Salom! because it moves that way. Amoeba moves around with making false feet, caused to change his shape.
One finds these forms of organic life in bodies of water, i.e. lakes or oceans.
Protista. Formerly called protozoa.
No, amoebas have no cell walls.
the two main jobs are eating and reproduction.
Makes is own food
Go to the doctor you stupid! Puyate!
Through locomotion: Amoebas move by changing the shape of their body, forming pseudopods ( temporary foot-like structures).
Plasmodia (plural) are parasitic organisms that cause Malaria in human beings. They are transported by the Tsetse Fly and feed on both the fly and the human (internally) in order to survive. Like any other parasite they weaken their host.
They are both made of cells. The whale has many cells but the  amoeba has only one cell.
*they are all animal like protists *they can move on their own*they feed on other animal like and plant like organisms
They are the same because they are both cells. They are different because paramecia cells are organisms so they can survive on their own with, sheep cells are not organisms so they need to be part of a larger organism to survive. Hope this helps
Freshwater protozoan require contractile vacuole to regulate the amount of water in its body /cell because the liquids ,in the form of waste water etc ,present in protozoan are more concentrated than the surrounding freshwater water due to presence of different acid ,etc . As a result concentration...
because they have a type that no other plant doesnt have there big  and bold
bacteria and blue-green bacteria
Yes. All euglena have chloroplasts and can make their own food by photosynthesis. They are not completely autotrophic though,
Yes, as a photosynthetic organism Volvox contributes oxygen to the environment and is a food source for heterotrophic organisms. Volvox is at the bottom of the food chain that supports fish.
That website has great pictures of Amoebas! http://www.btinternet.com/~stephen.durr/amoebaproteus.html
