Protista

  1. Protists
    Single celled eukaryotic organism
  2. Endosymbiont theory
    • Many of the organelles in Eukaryotes were once their own free living prokaryote cell
    • Ex: Mitochondria and Chloroplast
    • Replicate on their own independently of DNA and Ribosomes
  3. Three Major Types:
    • Animal Like
    • Plant Like
    • Fungus Link
  4. Protozoans
    • Characterized by how they move vis flagella cillia psudopods
    • Animal like
  5. Rhizobia
    Pseudopods protist, use to engulf prey
  6. Cilophora
    Ciliates (paramecium) use cilia to sweep food into mouth
  7. Fungus Like:Slime Molds
    • Phyla: Mycomycota or Acrasiomycota
    • Not photosynthetic but like plants and fungi have alternation of generations
  8. Plant like: Chlorophyta and Algea
    • Algea, dioflagellets and diatomsĀ 
    • Bright colors because stored plasmids for photosynthesis
  9. Cartenoid
    Yellow red pigment
  10. Xsnthophylls
    Brownish
  11. Diatoms
    • Shells are made of silica and shed as the die
    • Many are colonialĀ 
    • Can undergo alternation of generations
  12. Chlorophyta
    Green algea live symbiotically with Lichens
