What organisms in kingdom protista are pathogenic?
I'm looking in my textbook and it says that these are harmful pathogenic organisms in Kingdom Protista: Sarcodina: Entamoeba Histolytica Coli, which is often spread through contaminated water. That's why when you go to foreign countries they say, "Don't drink the water!" Entamoeba Histolytica causes severe dysentery, nausea, exhaustion, diahrrea, and sometimes even death! So be careful! Mastigophorites are also pathogenic. A small fly known as the tsetse fly carries mastigophorites that belong to the genus trypanosoma, which causes African Sleeping Sickness, a disease which often leads to death. Balantidium Coli is a species of ciliophora that is a parasitic pathogen of animals such as rats, pigs, and guinea pigs. The animal eats or drinks a substance contaminated with this and it is transfered to the animal or even the person. The coli feeds off of the animal/human's fecal matter (poop) , resulting in severe dysentery. It is not common in the US, but is very common in tropical regions of the world where malnutritioned people and pigs live in close proximity of one another. Hope this helps you ! Love always, your friend, April R.

The kingdom Protista is basically "catch-all" type of category for scientists, meaning any eukaryotic organism that can not be classified as either a fungus, animal, or plant …is generally classified as a protist, making the kingdom Protista extremely diverse. Algae
The kingdom protista contains organisms that are unicellulareukaryotes not classified as plants, animals, fungi or bacteria.The kingdom protista contains varieties of eukaryot…ic organisms,some single celled, some multicellular, and still others live in acolony of cells. For instance, the Kingdom Protista contains thegroups of organisms that are one-celled protozoa, one-celled algae,slime molds and water molds. Examples are amoeba, diatom,paramecium, rotifer, and euglena. . Kingdom Protista is now a defunct taxon. The reason for this wasbecause it was a wastebasket taxon, i.e. the one thing its membershad in common was that they didn't fit anywhere else. As such, it'sincredibly difficult to point to any "average" protist, as therewould be others in the group that are nothing like them. KingdomProtista was recently dissolved into several kingdoms that havetraits in common, including Amoebozoa, Rhizaria, and Excavata. If forced to give a "type specimen", I'd have to go with the greeneuglena Euglena viridis . It shows such a mix of plant-like(cell wall, chloroplasts) and animal-like (eyespot,self-locomotion) traits that, in the nineteenth century, Germanbiologist Ernst Haeckel created Kingdom Protista because itwouldn't fit anywhere else nicely.
well, eubacteria live in our mouth to help us break down food, and they also live in our stomachs and help us break down food there too. Fungi decompose us when we die. we als…o eat some fungi for treats, i.e. truffles, some protists can live off of us, i.e. malaria. and protists...idk sry. -hope this helps, Anna lee
The two main ones are yellow-green algae, and golden-brown algae.
as if i care but then also i am telling its monera-bacteria,archaeaonel then protista- amoeba,algae, paramecium
to have a good cell devision on the onther hand i dont know we lovedemi and one direction
The three types of locomotion protists use are psudopodia, cilia, and flagella. cillia and flagella
They are all eukaryotic. By this characteristic, they all have truenucleus and membrane bound organelles in their cells.
Kingdom Protista is called polyphyletic group of organism because they do not shear their single common ancester.
"Protista" means the first. The name was chosen for this kingdombecause members of the kingdom were probably the first eukaryotes
The rotozoa, slime molds, and algae are the organisms that werelater placed in the Kingdom Protista. no
One Certain Protists live in colonies which can appear to be a single organism, however they show no differentiation into tissues.
One is rhodophyta, which surprisingly includes kelps. Another is chlorophyta, which is made of colonies of organisms. This is the closest you could get to two phylums of mult…icellular organisms in kingdom Protista.
I do knw the answer well that's helpful , yah know Protist
