general characteristics
General Characteristics
  • Similar to fungi in that they are heterotrophs that absorb food from dead or decaying organic matter
  • Unlike true fungi, they contain centrioles
  • Lack chitin cell walls that are found in fungi
slime moulds
Slime Moulds
  • play key role in recycling matter in the environment
  • At one stage of their life cycle, they look like amoeba
  • At other stages, they look like fungi and produce spores
  • Individual cells remain distinct at every stage of their lives
examples of slime moulds
Examples of Slime Moulds
  • Some are acellular
  • They fuse together to create large cells with many nuclei
  • They are known as plasmodia
water moulds oomycetes
Water Moulds (oomycetes)
  • Thrive on dead and decaying matter in water
  • Some are plant parasites on land
  • Most famous example is the protist responsible for the great potato famine (blight)
