An amoeba is a unicellular, genderless organism that belongs to theProtista kingdom & can reproduce through asexual reproduction. Amoeba are the unicellular, microscopic organism which moves by thehelp of pseudopodia (false foot)
Answer . An amoeba is a shapeless blob of jelly that engulfs random objects on its way to know where in particular. Amoeba move by using their pseudopodium which is a "false leg." Amoeba can be harmful or helpful to man-kind and other living things. Amoebas are composed of just one cell. They are… protozoans with no fixed shape. Most have no hard parts and look like blobs of jelly. However, some amoebas do build shells. Amoebas move by making part of its body move in the direction it wants to travel. Then slowly the rest of the cell follows. In order to eat an Amoeba flows around other microorganisms and then engulfs them. To reproduce the Amoeba splits itself into two cells. (MORE)
Yes, but not in the organs that large forms of life have, such as stomach, intestines livers, etc. Instead, they have what are called vacuoles. These vacuoles are small, circular pockets inside the amoeba spontaneously creates that can either digest food or excrete waste. When an amoeba eats, it eng…ulfs its food with its pseudopods, or blob shaped projections. The food it engulfed creates a little pocket, or vacuole, that is then used to digest with and later, the vacuole is released from the amoeba containing the waste it created from digestion. (MORE)
The ameoba has a body part called the "pseuodopod" (pronounced sudopod). Which it uses to move and eat with as well. It extends the "pseuodopod" around it's food then pulls it towards the rest of the body to be digested. It does that same thing to move except ulling it self along. The things that a…moebas eat vary from algae and bacteria or other protozoa and dead plants or animal matter. (MORE)
by frogs or other pond living creatures in the area, it all depends on the habitat
There is no difference. Amoebas reproduce by cell division. This person is right. The Amoeba goes through mitosis. Which means they multiply there selves. (They make another cell exactly identical to the cell making it.) But how does it reproduce.
Pseudopodia. This is an extension of the amoeba's membrane in two places for food gathering and, perhaps, one place for locomotion, by the cytoskeleton elements; the microtubules.
Why do some biologists refer to single-celled organisms such as Amoeba and Paramecium as acellular rather than unicellular?
because amoeba is a single cell organism made up of only one cell which helps in the function of vital organs...
the organs of a living organism that helps it to move is known as it's locomotive organ.
Amoeba are not usually found in any organ unless there is an infection like amoebic dysentery. Amoeba are unicellular organisms that may cause infection in humans and animals.
They eat bacteria off of ponds and clean them. They also have a rich feces that enhances the environment.
well it all started out in a small little place called your mum, the sun was rising and your dad was with little missy pocock :) a cockroach therefore has 4 eyes, 5 noses and a leg.
An amoeba replicates by splitting in half asexually so that each daughter cell is the same as the parent. Running this process backward from the present, each existing amoeba is the same as its predecessor (fungible) back as far in time as the first amoeba existed. In this regard the amoeba is immor…tal. Now it get a bit picky. The above assumes that no genetic changes have occurred since amoeba #1. This cannot be proved. Replication errors, chromosome damage by radiation etc may have happened to create slightly better or worse (at least different) amoebas that are the ancestors of all amoebas today. The term "immortal" needs some thought to. No individual amoeba is necessarily immortal. Each amoeba can be killed. Only the amoeba pattern is immortal so far. Then there is the Star Trek transporter problem. When Kirk is transported he is destroyed at the sending end and reconstituted at the receiving end. Is he the same Kirk? Amoebas are the same. The "mother" amoeba is essentially destroyed as it divides to create the daughters. Do the daughters share all the learnings of the mother? or would they see themselves as unique? (MORE)
Paramecium move faster because they are covered with cilia while amoeba must change shape to move, which is called amoeboid movement.
'Flagella', also known as mastigophora. Their ability to swim makesthem adaptable in different habitats. 'Cilia' has identicalstructure as flagella and therefore can be called as miniatureflagella. 'Pseudopodia' are locomotors and food acquiringorganelles.
The pseudopodia is the organ of locomotion of amoeba.The word pseudo means false and podia or pods means feet.As pseudopodia is the cytoplasmic projection which helps in locomotion of amoeba so it is also called as false feet.
They are microorganisms, consisting of only one cell, and they are so small that they cannot be seen with the unaided eye. Some organisms are smaller than amoebas, but they are still very small.

They eat the organisms in the water there for they are in the protist family
an amoeba excretes through its contractile vacuoles. all the material to be excreted is brought to the contractile vacuole and from there its pumped out of the organism
I believe you mean, "respire"? Because amoebas are so small, they don't need a oxygen transportation system like larger organisms. They can simply respire through diffusion of O2 across their cell membranes, which provides all the O2 they need. This is because their surface area to volume ratio i…s extremely high when compared to, say, a human. (MORE)
Yes an AMEBA (you spelled it wrong) can reproduce. It splits into two halfs and after it splits in two the parent is no longer in existence. An ameba reproduces every ten to twenty minutes
Actually, yes they do! Any living organism, including one celled organisms, have a mechanism for getting rid of waste. If you look at a living amoeba under a microscope, every now and then you can see it leave a small particle of waste behind. This is amoeba poop!
The amoeba cell and human body cell are similar in a way that they're both alive and carry out similar life processes; for example they both reproduce, maintain homeostasis, carry out metabolic activities. All of these examples were explained in the Living Environment Regents book.
No. Amoebas are in the Kingdom Protista, and Germs are in theKingdom Bacteria. Basically opposite ends of the galaxy.
Many single-celled organisms reproduce the same way as an amoeba. In fact, most of them do. Bacteria can reproduce into over 200 other bacteria in 3 hours if the environment around them is appropriate.
It has sub-components that are called Organellas. for example the food vacuole which is essential to its life-cycle.
no they are to small to have a respiratory system or organ so they breath through there cell membrane
Why are living things as different as single-celled amoebas and multicelled humans both considered to be organisms?
living things as different a single celled amoebas and multivalued humans both considered are both living and an organism must contain at least some Tye of living things..
Amoeba is an animal but a protist. It does not come under the kingdom animalia because it is a unicellular organism.
Most amoeba do not have chloroplasts. However, recent studies show that amoeba can obtain choloroplasts from engulfing photosynthetic alga.
The Amoeba is considered a simple organism because it is unicellular protozoan, or an animal composed of only one cell.
They both reproduce and maintain homeostasis. They also share the characteristics of life and carry out metabolic activities. They both are made of cells.
Amoeba (sometimes amÅba or ameba , plural amoebae or amoebas ) is a genus of Protozoa consisting of shapeless unicellular organisms. The cell's organelles and cytoplasm are enclosed by a cell membrane ; it obtains its food through phagocytosis. This makes amoebae heterotrop…hs. Amoebae have a single large tubular pseudopod at the anterior end, and several secondary ones branching to the sides. The most famous species, Amoeba proteus , averages about 220-740 Î¼m in length, while in motion  making it a giant among amoeboids.  A few amoeboids belonging to different genera can grow larger, however, such as Gromia, Pelomyxa, and Chaos. Amoebae's most recognizable features include one or more nuclei and a simple contractile vacuole to maintain osmotic equilibrium. Food enveloped by the amoeba is stored and digested in vacuoles. Amoebae, like other unicellular eukaryotic organisms, reproduce asexually viamitosis and cytokinesis, not to be confused with binary fission, which is how prokaryotes (bacteria) reproduce. In cases where the amoeba are forcibly divided, the portion that retains the nucleus will survive and form a new cell and cytoplasm, while the other portion dies. Amoebae also have no definite shape.

From what I've researched, I think yes. I saw something that said "amoeba: the microscopic organism...". This would seem like a yes to me! :)
The time-honored way to study protists, as they are now called is to take a sample of water from a local pond or lake that does have wildlife- grow a so-called hay infusion and after the incubation period , sample the water under a microscope. This is basic Biology-l stuff. The Amoeba and the Parame…cium, which has a shoe-shaped body something like Manhattan Island ( so I observe) are common residents in such an infusion. There are a number of books on basic biology which should prove helpful. (MORE)
The amoeba meets all of the usual criteria to be considered an organism. It has a metabolism, it eats and reproduces and moves. It has a biochemistry that is recognizably similar to that of cells of other species, with DNA, proteins, etc.
Why do humans need a circulatory system to transport oxygen while single celled organisms like amoeba do not?
We are eukaryote which means are cells are more advanced than there's. And since we have more cells than a amoeba. Our cells carry oxygen to the brain and other organs in the body. A amoeba dose not have a brain. So it doesn't need a circulatory system.
no. Amoebas are unicellular eukaryotic organisms that belong to order Sarcodina and Kingdom Protista. they move by using pseudopods.
The answer would be an amoeba, for reproducting asexually means to pretty much split yourself in half and make two versions of yourself.
No , because they can not move from one place to another they are at rest .
The locomotory organ that a camel uses to walk is the hump. When acamel walks, they move both legs at once on the same side.
The reason is our size.Because mammals are so large(increased distance from the nutrients and the cells requiring them), have a high metabolic rate and a high level of activity, we have high oxygen and nutrient requirements.We also produce a relatively large amount of waste that has to be removed- a…ll this is achieved by our complex transport system.While the single celled creature is able to recieve/absorb oxygen and nutrients as well as get rid of waste products directly to the environment ocer the organisms cell membrane.

A paramecium and an amoeba are both protists. A mushroom is a type of fungi, which is an entirely different class of life.
Amoeba, being single celled organisms, undergo a process known as Mitosis in order to grow and reproduce. Mitosis is a division of a cell in which the DNA recombines to increase genetic diversity.
Because paramecia and amoebae are single-celled animals, and inorder to have organs you need to be multicellular (organs are madeof cells). They have to make do with organelles, like the nucleusand mitochondria.
the sea horse uses its dorsal fins and tail to move from one placeto another
They are all "Living Beings existing and depending on sufficient supply of Water and Air and on the stability and constancy of mixtures of organics of all their body's components and of their natural ambiente like Temp, O2, CO2, H2O, Nutrients, atmospheric pressure etc
Out of an amoeba, horse, worm, or paramecium, the horse is mostspecialized. This means that the horse is the most advanced andmost adapted to its environment.
No. The smallest living organism is Nanoarchaeum equitans. Thisminuscule microbe was only recently discovered in a hydrothermalvent off the coast of Iceland, and its cells are only 400nanometers across.
