what is a protista
What is a Protista?
  • To be a protist, an organism must be Eukaryotic
  • This means to have a nucleus that contains the organisms DNA
  • Cells are larger than archaea and bacteria
physical features of protista
Physical Features of Protista
  • Can be single-celled, multicellular, or colonial
  • Size ranges from microscopic to very large
  • Can look like animals, plants or fungi, but are usually simpler and smaller
  • Cell Walls differ based on the species
  • The kingdom is divided into three broad categories
examples of phyla
Examples of Phyla
  • Rhizopoda- Rhizopods, Have and use foot like appendages to move and feed, animal like (Ex. Amoeba)
  • Rhodophyta- Red Algae, Multi-cellular, photosynthetic, live in salt water, contains red pigment, plant like (Ex. Coralline Algae)
examples of phyla1
Examples of Phyla
  • Apicomplexa- Sporozoans, Parasites than move by
  • Body flexion or gliding. Cause diseases in birds and humans, animal like (Ex. Plasmodium)
examples of phyla2
Examples of Phyla
  • Ciliophora- Ciliates, possess many short hair type things called
  • Paramecium
  • Cilia, use them for feeding and movement, animal like (Ex. Paramecium)
protista s advantages over other kingdoms
Protista’s Advantages over other Kingdoms
  • -Microscopic, hard for predators to find
  • -Don’t need much food, only need sunlight for photosynthesis (except animal like Protista)
  • -Some create diseases in creatures from other Kingdoms
  • -Some Protista are extremely tough
  • -Protists are very diverse, and the whole Kingdom Protista contains various features of all the other Kingdoms
what if the earth didn t have the protista kingdom
What if the Earth didn’t have the Protista Kingdom
  • -Without zooflagellates (type of Protista) termites would not be able to survive. Zooflagellates play a vital role in helping the termites digest the wood they eat
  • - Algae produces 80% of the world’s oxygen. Algae is made by protists
  • -Green algae was an ancestor to many modern plants
  • -Red algae provides many products like ice cream, and dried red algae is used to roll seaweed
