Endosymbiotic hypothesis l.jpg

Endosymbiotic hypothesis

  • Nucleated cell takes in aerobic bacteria

Kingdom protista survey of life l.jpg

Kingdom Protista – Survey of Life

  • Like the Monera, the Protista are extremely important to life on earth.

  • The protists play important roles in food webs throughout the world, while the algae also contribute significantly to photosynthesis.

  • This kingdom contains the most diverse assemblage of organisms of any of the five major kingdoms.

  • Greater than 60,000 known protists - vary extensively in cellular anatomy, general morphology, and physiology.

  • Nearly all aerobic in metabolism, reproduce by both sexual and asexual means, may be heterotrophic or autotrophic, and most have flagella or cilia at some stage of their life cycle.

  • Most constituents of zooplankton and phytoplankton would belong to this kingdom.

Kingdom protista l.jpg

Kingdom Protista

  • Contains three major sub-divisions:

    1. ingestive, animal-like protists - protozoa

    2. photosynthetic, plant-like protists - algae

    3. absorptive, fungus like protists - slime and water molds

Protozoa subdivided based on locomotion or feeding strategy l.jpg

Protozoa - subdivided based on locomotion or feeding strategy

  • Phylum Rhizopoda –

  • amoebas and relatives; unicellular;

  • freshwater and marine species;

  • "amoeboid movement" by pseudopodia;

    • phagocytize algae, bacteria, other protists

  • free-living and parasitic forms;

  • reproduce by asexual means;

  • Examples include Amoeba proteus, and Entamoeba histolytica which causes amoebic dysentery in humans

Protozoa contd13 l.jpg

Protozoa, contd.

  • Phylum Apicomplexa (Sporozoans) - parasitic protozoa which enter host by means of structure near apex of organism; disseminate as infectious cells called sporozoites; complex, multi-staged life cycles with sexual and asexual stages often involving several hosts; Examples include Plasmodium which causes malaria (female Anopheles mosquito serves as vector); sporozoites (2N) injected into human host; merozoites invade host red blood cells

Protozoa l.jpg


  • Phylum Zoomastigophora (Zooflagellates) - use flagella for locomotion; free-living, parasitic, and symbiotic forms; Examples include Trypanosoma, which requires the tsetse fly as a vector and a cow as intermediate host, causes African Sleeping Sickness; and Trichonympha which lives in the gut of termites and metabolizes cellulose

Protozoa- contd.

  • Phylum Ciliophora (Ciliates) –

  • locomotion by cilia; most are freshwater, unicellular forms;

  • Examples include Paramecium which utilizes cilia for locomotion and Stentor which utilizes cilia for collecting food; among the most complex of all cells;

  • Important structures associated with Paramecium include a macronucleus which controls normal metabolic functions of the cell; a micronucleus which functions in sexual reproduction by conjugation;

  • and a contractile vacuole which functions in osmoregulation

The algae l.jpg

The Algae

  • primarily photosynthetic, unicellular or multicellular, plant-like protists;

  • all algae possess Chlorophyll a (the same in cyanobacteria and higher plants) but also possess a variety of accessory pigments including:

    1. carotenoids (yellow-orange)

    2. xanthophylls (yellow-brown)

    3. phycobilins (red and blue)

    4. chlorophylls b, c, and d

Major considerations include:

  • Ulva would also be commonly called "seaweed' along with members of the Phylum Phaeophyta and Rhodophyta; important structures include thallus (body), holdfast, stipe (stem), and blade (leaflike structure);

  • seaweeds lack vascular tissue and, therefore, do not possess true roots, stems, or leaves

Ulva would also be commonly called

The slime and water molds fungus like protists l.jpg

The Slime and Water Molds:Fungus-like Protists

  • Myxomycota - plasmodial slime molds; life cycle consists of coenocytic (multinucleate) feeding plasmodium alternating with haploid amoeboid cells

    Feeding by phagocytosis – ingest excellular particles by engulfing them- forest decomposition, also feed on bacteria

    Plasmodium – muticellular cytoplasmic mass having a slime sheath that creeps along
