Protists

Parent Category: Microbiology
Protists are unicellular or multicellular microorganisms. The majority of protists are responsible for many diseases in humans.
What is 0.45 divided by 5.85
Macrophages, or white blood cells. They project pseudopods just  like an amoeba would.
Diatoms are unicellular. There cell walls are made of two overlapping halves.This credit goes to http:/users.rcn.com/jkimball.ma.uktranet/biologypages/p/protists.html
No. Protists can live in oceans, ponds, and streams. They can also live in human and animal digestive tracts.
in first division there will be two amoeba and then after second division there will be four of them which can be calculated by the formula 2n where n is the no. of division
cilia that surrounds the paramecium serves as their mode of movementn.
2 characteristics that all protists share are they live in moist areas and they areeukaryotes.
A paramecium is shaped like the sole or bottom of a lady's slipper.
They eat decaying aquatic vegitation,
it is unicellular
NO i dont think so
The largest and most complex group algae is Brown algae, for example seaweed is one of the most large and complex forms of algae.
Neat little letter trick here... HOFBrINCl Hydrogen, oxygen, fluorine, bromine, iodine, nitrogen, chlorine.
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.
Paramecium can take in food only at the cytostome. The cilia in the oral groove create a current of water which wafts the food organisms up to the cytostome where they are ingested in a food vacuole. This food vacuole then follows a specific route through the cytoplasm. On its travels, enzymes are...
Characteristics of diatoms:     All species are unicellular or colonial coccoid algae. None are  free-living flagellates.  The only flagellate cells produced are the male gametes (=  sperm, spermatozoids) of 'centric' diatoms. These have a single  forward-pointing flagellum, which bears...
M- move by flowing of cytoplasm over the surface i.e mud, soil. - pseudopods - changing the shape of their body. R-"breathes" using a porous cell membrane (oxygen in - carbon dioxide out) S- no special sense organs. - changes in outside world detected by all parts of living material - limited...
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...
See it doesnt be harmful until you eat it.
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...
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...
I am pretty sure they survive in both the surface zone and the Deep zone.
one lives in salt water and the other in fresh water.
They;re different because they're niether animals, plants, orfungi, and they're eukaryotes
They are considered eukaryotic cells because they have a true ("eu") nucleus.
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.
Algae can form using sexual or asexual methods
amoeba Sp. have long finger-like pseudopodia for movement were as paramecium Sp. have short hair-like cilia for its movement. They are both unicellular eukaryotes classified in kingdom protista.
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
red algae is the only one of all algae that can survive in deepest waters.
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!
normaly a paramecium will move in a range from 5 to 10 mph why in extreme cases like being chased by its natural preditor, the paramecium will travel about 35 mph if ever threatened.
Well, unicellular protists called Euglenophytes photosynthesize by using the eye spot which is located near the gullet. The eye spot captures sun light and helps power photosynthesis.
Plantlike protists, which are commonly called algae, are extremely diverse. Like plants, algae are autotrophs. Most are able to use the sun's energy to make their own food.
They are evil. They can eat you Ha Ha Ha......  
There are about 5,000,000 algae in the world today vnfdklszhdcfjfilx
No, Flatworms belong in the kingdom Animalia, usually in Phylums such as Platyheliminthes.However, Slime Moulds can produce small (~1mm) slug like creatures at some points, which at one point has a large flat mass that some may refer to as a flatworm, but really it is nothing like it.
It is an arm like projection that catch food which is usually other protists or bacteria and is produced by pushing out parts of the cell.
Protist are grouped into 3 main groups they are used in things such as food and toothpaste protists almost wiped out the French wine industry. Protists are the eukaryotic organisms that doesn't fit into any other kingdoms. The kingdom protista itself was broken down into many other kingdoms because...
Salom! because it moves that way. Amoeba moves around with making false feet, caused to change his shape.
Protista. Formerly called protozoa.
No, amoebas have no cell walls.
Diatoms are single celled algae.
The amoeba has within it a nucleus, that contains all the genetic material (DNA) that controls reproduction of the cell
the two main jobs are eating and reproduction.
They are all linear because they all contain two molecules.
Go to the doctor you stupid! Puyate!
No, diatoms are related to the golden-brown algae (Chrysophyta), but are generally classified in their own group, the Bacillariophyta.
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 all animal like protists *they can move on their own*they feed on other animal like and plant like organisms
the paramecium uses cilia, which are tiny hair-like structures, for locomotion. on the other hand, amoeba uses pseudopodia, which are extensions of the cell's cytoplasm, to move.
protists can cause many diseases in man.
They eat the organisms in the water there for they are in the protist family
The first stage of Plasmodium is called Sporozoite. Which lives in mosquitoes and is injected into humans. The second stage of Plasmodium is called Merozoite.
Amoeba reproduces by binary fission while sporozoans show schizogony , sporogony , gametogony and syngamy .
Yes, albeit on a microscopic scale. it uses the external cilia for mobility- something like a living caterpillar tractor tread. The body shape resembles a shoe- or, I know this sounds crazy- the shape of Manhattan Island.
  The more than 8,000 species of diatoms are the largest group in the phylum Chrysophyta of the kingdom Protista.
  Yes it does have that's why it reproduces a lot.   Yes it does have that's why it reproduces a lot.
Yes; Diatoms are microscopic, eukaryotic, unicellular plants (although they can live in colonies and/or riboons/filaments) and are a major group of algea.
Aquatic environment. (ponds, lakes, streams, reservoirs, scums)
I know that one protist like that is in the Sam Merenda genus.
