Kingdom Protista Classification
We mentioned these 4 animal-like protist phyla on the introduction notes, but now we will look into these 4 phyla in more detail on the following slides:
This is an ameba using cytoplasmic streaming to surround and engulf some food.
What organ of the human body did we just say this amoeba affects? How?
Here is the Entamoeba histolytica
What is this ameba doing? What other protist does it look like the ameba is eating?
Notice how the cytoplasmic streaming creates a diverse array of ameba shapes
Can you find all these eukaryotic cell parts on this paramecium?
A type of Sexual reproduction where there is an exchange of genetic information!
What structures allow this paramecium to move and obtain food?
Here is the trypanosoma protist in a blood smear
Can you trace the infectious cycle?
Sporozoa(commonly called Apicomplexa)
The Apicomplexa — also called Apicomplexia — are a large group of parasitic protists, most of which possess a unique organelle, a type of plastid called an apicoplast, and an apical complex structure involved in penetrating a host's cell.
Who is an obvious vector (transmitter) of the Sporozoan?
Infects red blood cells and release toxins
Now you know about both phytoplankton AND zooplankton. What is the difference?
Can you find them both in this food chain picture?
Volvox colonies with daughter colonies inside.
When diatoms die, they slowly sink to the seabed. The buildup of trillions of these shells forms a crumbly white sediment known as diatomaceous earth or diatomite, which is used in manufacturing pool filters and abrasives, including toothpaste.
Dinoflagellates color the water in a British Columbia bay.
These are oospores of the plant pathogenic oomycete (water mold) Phytophthoria sojae. This fungus-like microbe causes a serious root and stem rot disease of soybeans.
