Kingdom Protista


Kingdom protista

Kingdom protists is the most diverse of all the Kingdoms

A Protist is a ____________ that is not officially a Plant, ________, or _________.

They lack one or more characteristics that would place them in these categories.


Protist classification

Protist Classification

  • Protists can be classified into three categories loosely on how they obtain food. The three categories of Protists are;

    • Animal- Like

    • Plant- Like

    • Fungus- Like


Animal like protists

Animal- Like Protists

  • Animal- Like Protists can all move and are Heterotrophs.

  • All Animal-Like Protists are unicellular, while animals are multi-cellular


Plant like protists

Plant-like Protists

  • Plant-like protists make their own food by photosynthesis just as plants do.

  • All True plants have roots, stems and leaves, and are multicellular

  • Plant like protists can be unicellular, colonial, or multicellular


Fungus like protists

Fungus-Like Protists

  • Fungus-Like Protists decompose dead organisms. There protists were once placed in the same kingdom as true fungi.

  • However, fungus-like Protists CAN move during part of their life cycle, whereas true fungi can NOT.


Animal like protists aka protozoan s

Animal-Like Protists aka Protozoan's

  • Protozoan are often classified by how they move.

  • Zooflagellatesare animal-like protists that have flagella at some point in their life cycle.

  • More than 2000 species of Zooflagellates exist.

  • Some Zooflagellates cause disease

    • Ex. African sleeping sickness


Animal like protists aka protozoans

Animal-Like Protists AKA Protozoans

  • Some protozoans called pseudopodia move using a pseudopod which means “false foot”

  • An amoeba can live in freshwater, salt water or soil. Foraminifera live in salt water

  • YouTube - Amoeba in motion


Animal like protists aka protozoans1

Animal-Like Protists AKA Protozoans

  • Protozoans that move using cilia are called Ciliates (shocking). Cilia are short hair like structures that that help protists swim and capture food. YouTube - Paramecium Feeding

  • Some ciliates are parasites that cause disease, most are free living found in common pond water


Plant like protista

Plant-Like Protista

  • Unlike Plants which are all multi cellular; plant like protists can be unicellular, colonial, or multicellular.

  • Photosynthetic plant-like protists are called Algae.

  • Algae are not true plants because they do not have roots, stems or leaves


Plant like protista1

Plant-Like Protista

  • Euglenoids are single celled plant-like protista that swim with the aid of one or more flagella

Plant like protista2

Plant-Like Protista

  • Dinoflagellates- Most live in salt water. Some produce toxins that can produce red tides and kill large numbers of fish


Plant like protists1

Plant-Like Protists

  • Diatoms- single celled, covered with delicate glasslike shells. They can be found in fresh, or salt water.

  • Diatoms produce approx half of the earths atmospheric oxygen


Diatoms are soo pretty

Diatoms are soo Pretty !


Green algae

Green Algae

  • Most species of green algae are aquatic.

Brown algae

Brown Algae

  • Brown algae include the giant kelp that form thick underwater forests.


Red algae

Red Algae

  • This group of algae can grown a deeper depths than any other algae. It’s red pigments are able to absorb the blue light that reaches the deepest level of the ocean

Fungus like protista

Fungus Like Protista

  • Fungus like protists are valuable decomposers in the ecosystems. Two types of Fungus like protists are

    • Slime Molds & Water Molds
