Fungus Like Protists


Charachteristics

Charachteristics

  • Prefer cool, shady, moist places and are usually found under fallen leaves or rotten logs.

  • Show both animal like and fungus like stages.

  • Saprotrophic- decomposers

  • Example:Slime molds


Life cycle of a fungilike protist

Life Cycle of a Fungilike Protist

P.527


Plasmodium

Plasmodium

  • Colorful, slimy mass containing many nuclei.

  • Slowly moves along the forest floor and decomposes rotting logs and other decaying material.

  • Leaves a slime trail behind- hence the name slime mold


Plasmodium1

Plasmodium

  • When conditions become unfavorable, the plasmodium stops moving around and develops reproductive structures called fruiting bodies. They produce spores which are released and carried away by the wind.

  • If conditions are favorable, these spores develop into gametes called swarm cells. The swarm cells are chemically attracted to each other and fuse to form a zygote. The zygote then grows into a new plasmodium.
