LAB # 1. THE PROTOZOANS 1. Overview Almost everything about Protozoan phylogeny and biology is controversial. No two biologists can agree whether this group should be alligned with the plants, the animals or even the fungi.
Protozoans are members of the kingdom a. Animalia. b. Plantae. c. Fungi. d. Protista. 2. One characteristic that is not found in any protozoan is a. heterotrophy. b.

Protozoans and Algae Study Guide, 3 About the Organisms What are protozoans and algae? Protozoans and algae are general names given to the complex single celled life one finds in ponds and wetlands.
The fourth phylum of Protozoans, the Mastigophora, move by one or two tentacles called flagella, as illustrated by a Peranema and a Euglena.
1 Protozoa in the Deep Sea (Foraminifera, Xenophyophores, Gromids) Studies of agglutinated protozoans have lagged behind others because: - the tests are so fragile, - early sampling methods did not recover organisms intact, - sorters failed to pay attention to small mud lumps.
Bio 108 - Protozoans 1 Animal-like Protista The Evolution of Eukaryotes The small size and simpler construction of the prokaryotic cell has many advantages but also imposes a number of limitations: ∞ The number of metabolic activities that can occur at any one time is smaller ∞ The smaller ...

Introduction Kinetoplastids are a group of flagellated protozoans that are distinguished by the presence of a DNA-containing region, known as a "kinetoplast," in their single large mitochondrion. Although ...
The diversification of the protozoans is fundamentally important for understanding both the early evolution of eukaryotes as a whole and the origins of these higher kingdoms.
