  1. 4 ways that reproduction of eukaryotes is more complicated than reproduction of prokaryotes
    • 1. Most of DNA is packaged with histone proteins as chromosomes in the form of chromatin fibers located within nuclei.
    • 2. Eukaryotes have a variety of methods of asexual reproduction, including binary fission, budding , fragmentation, spore formation
    • 3. many eukaryotes reproduce sexually- involves the formation of sexual cells called gametes
    • 4. additionally algae, fungi, and some protozoa reproduce both sexually and asexually 
  2. diploid?
    2 sets of chromosomes (4 haploid cells)
  3. haploid?
    • 1 set of chromosomes
    • •Mostfungi, many algae, and some protozoa are haploid; the rest are diploid
  4. mitosis?
    nuclear division results into two nuclei
  5. Meiosis?
    nuclear division of diploid eukaryotic cells resulting in four haploid nuclei
  6. cytokinesis?
    cytoplasmic division
  7. coenocytes?
    multinucleate cells resulting from repeated mitosis

    • Maycause diseases of swimmers
    • Naegleria and acanthamoeba –infects brains, eyes 
    • Slime Molds –lack celle walls, phagocytic
  21. The Significance of Fungi -describe benefits and risks
    • decompose dead organisms and recycle their nutrients
    • humans use for foods
    • produce antibiotics
    • research in study
    • not beneficial mycoses fungal disease

    • –Parasiticworms
    • Microbiologists
    • usually identify the microscopic eggs or cysts
