Living organisms are classified into 3 Domains




4 Kingdoms in this Domain

Domain eukarya has 4 kingdoms l.jpg

Domain Eukarya has 4 Kingdoms

1. Kingdom Protista

2. Kingdom Fungi

3. Kingdom Plantae

4. Kingdom Animalia

Kingdom protista l.jpg

Kingdom Protista

  • Believed to have evolved as the first eukaryotes.

  • Organisms in this group just don’t fit perfectly into any other Kingdom in the Domain Eukarya.

Slide4 l.jpg

  • Most protists are unicellular, but some multicellular

  • Asexual reproduction is common, but sexual reproduction also occurs.

  • Most diverse group of organisms of any kingdom.

3 divisions of protist l.jpg

3 Divisions of Protist

  • Plant-like protist

  • Animal-like protist

  • Fungus-like protist

Diversity of protista 3 major divisions l.jpg

2nd division of protista l.jpg

2nd Division of Protista

  • Animal Like Protist or Protozoa

    • Amoebas

    • Flagellates

    • Ciliates

    • Sporozoans

    • Slime Molds

    • Water Molds

    • Downy Mildews

15 phyla, based on the way they obtain energy.

Plant like protist it is thought that these evolve into plants with specialized cells and tissues l.jpg

PLANT-LIKE PROTISTIt is thought that theseEvolve into Plants with specialized cells and tissues

Phylum chlorophyta green algae spirogyra 7000 species of chlorophyta l.jpg

Phylum ChlorophytaGreen AlgaeSpirogyra7000 species of Chlorophyta

Phylum chlorophyta green algae l.jpg

Phylum Chlorophyta Green Algae

Spirogyra is a filamentous green algae. They form end-to-end chains of cells. Often found on the surfaces of ponds.

Conjugation 

(similar to bacterial conjugation)

Phylum chlorophyta green algae13 l.jpg

Phylum Chlorophyta: Green Algae

Multicellular green algae

Chara is a stonewort, the type of green algae believed to be most closely related to plants.

Phylum chlorophyta green algae14 l.jpg

Phylum ChlorophytaGreen Algae

Volvox is a colonial green alga which has many individuals living together

Green algae l.jpg

Green Algae

  • Pediastrum, a flat colony of green algae

Phylum rhodophyta red algae l.jpg

Phylum RhodophytaRed Algae

Commercial importance of red algae:

Agar—laboratory use, gelatin used in Petri dishes

Carrageen—thickening agent in commercial products


Phylum phaeophyta brown algae l.jpg

Phylum Phaeophyta Brown Algae

Underwater forests—habitats

Kelp—food, habitats for aquatic organisms

Pectin—used to make gelatin

Brown algae kelp l.jpg

Phylum bacilariophyta diatoms or golden algae l.jpg

Phylum Bacilariophyta:Diatoms or Golden Algae

Silica—the shells of these organisms are used to make glass, concrete,

Diatomaceous earth -dead diatoms settle to seafloor, collected and used in abrasives


abundant food source for marine organisms

Phylum dinoflagellata spinning algae 2 flagella for movement l.jpg

Phylum Dinoflagellata: Spinning Algae-2 flagella for movement

Some are bio-luminescent

Some Symbiotic

Some Parasitic

Red tide—population explosion of certain types of dinoflagellates. Kills large amounts of fish. Depletes water of oxygen and releases toxins into the water.

Red tide dinoflagellates l.jpg

Red Tide-Dinoflagellates

The toxins produces by the Red Tide can make humans sick. Harvesting shellfish is banned during this time.

Phylum euglenophyta l.jpg

Phylum Euglenophyta


This phylum is a typical example of the difficulties in categorizing protists:

1/3 have chloroplasts, the other 2/3 do not.

No sexual reproduction. Longitudinal fission.

Propels the body through water.

ANIMAL-LIKE PROTISTIt is thought that these evolve into of Animals with multicellularity and specialized cells and tissue

Phylum zoomastigina move by flagella l.jpg

Phylum Zoomastigina: Move by Flagella

Trypanosoma transmitted by the bite of a tsetse fly, cause African Sleeping Sickness.

Animal-like protists


Slide30 l.jpg

Trypanosoma are Flagellates which cause African Sleeping Sickness Transmitted to their human hosts by a tsetse fly

Below: Trypanosoma in a sample of human blood X 400.

More Flagellates Phylum Zoomastigina

Animal-like protists

Other flagellates are known to spread sexually by infecting the vagina and urethra of women, and the prostate, seminal vesicles and urethra of men.



Giardia Lamblia

Attaches to intestinal tract and causes diarrhea

Can become infected by drinking contaminated water from stream

Phylum rhizopoda amoebas move by pseudopodia l.jpg

Phylum Rhizopoda-AmoebasMove by Pseudopodia

Phylum Rhizopoda- amoebas, including Entamoeba hystolytica

Phylum Foraminifera- calcium carbonate shell

Phylum Actinopoda-radiolarians


White Cliffs of Dover, Egyptian pyramids

Amoeba l.jpg


The projections are called pseudopods or “false feet.”

Phylum ciliophora or ciliates move by cilia l.jpg

Phylum Ciliophora or Ciliates Move by Cilia

Very diverse group; very complex single-celled organisms which use cilia for movement.

Ciliate paramecium l.jpg


Ciliate stentor l.jpg


Ciliate vorticella l.jpg


Phylum sporozoa parasite l.jpg

Phylum Sporozoa-Parasite

Life cycle of Plasmodium vivax,


Causes malaria

Carried by the Anopheles

What are fungus like protists l.jpg

What are Fungus-Like Protists?

  • Organisms which have some fungus-like features

  • Heterotrophic

  • Decompose organic material

Summary of protista kingdom l.jpg

Summary of Protista Kingdom

  • Most diverse group, autotrophic and heterotrophic

  • Eukaryotes, single celled and multicelled

  • Some move by: flagella, pseudopodia, cillia

  • Some are parasites

  • Reproduction both asexual and sexual

  • Some are harmless, some cause sleeping sickness , malaria and STDs
