    Protists belong to the Kingdom Protista, which include mostly unicellular organisms that do not fit into the other kingdoms. Characteristics of Protists. mostly unicellular, some are multicellular (algae) can be heterotrophic or autotrophic; most live in water (though some live in moist soil or even the human body) ALL are eukaryotic (have a. The protists, though microscopic in size, exhibit an amazing diversity of energy acquisition mechanisms. Pratt and Cairns () grouped protozoa into six categories: photosynthetic autotrophs, bacterivores-detritivores, DOM utilizers, algivores, omnivores, and predators. Even though Fenchel () over 25 years ago documented that algae, mostly diatoms, made up >75% of the diet of the benthic.

    The present review article reminds readers, who hopefully include general biologists and other scientists as well as per sons engaged directly in research activities that primarily involve solely protists (e.g. diverse studies on species belonging mainly to man y individual groups of algae or protozoa), of such roles whether they be in areas. Protozoa ingest their food in two ways. The first is a process called phagocytosis, in which a flexible portion of the cell membrane surrounds a food particle and engulfs it, bringing it into the cell in a vacuole. Phagocytosis is used to ingest other unicellular organisms or large particles. Smaller particles are ingested by pinocytosis.

    As nouns the difference between protist and protozoan is that protist is (microbiology) any of the eukaryotic unicellular organisms including protozoans, slime molds and some algae; historically grouped into the kingdom protoctista while protozoan is (cytology) any of the diverse group of eukaryotes, of the phylum protozoa, that are primarily unicellular, existing singly or aggregating into. Protozoa are usually concentrated near root surfaces that have high densities of bacteria or other prey. There are three major categories of protozoa: the flagellates, the amoebae, and the ciliates. The flagellates are the smallest of the protozoa and move by means of one to several flagella.

Protozoa and other protists by Michael A. Sleigh,E. Arnold edition, in English - Cited by:   Protozoa (or protozoans) are a diverse group of unicellular eukaryotic organisms, many of which are motile. Originally, protozoa had been defined as unicellular protists with animal-like behavior (e.g., movement).

Protozoa were regarded as the partner-group of protists to protophyta, which have plant-like behavior (e.g., photosynthesis). An animal-like protist, or a protozoa. These protists have the ability to move, usually with some sort of cilia or flagella, and must obtain their energy from other.

This book introduces you to creatures from the protist kingdom, from microscopic protozoans to seaweedlike algae. It examines the parts, life cycle, and reproduction of various types of protists.

It also looks at the harmful effects some protists have on humans. Protozoa is another name for animal-like protists. Like all protists, protozoa are single-celled organisms with a cell nucleus. Some have more than one nucleus. Protozoa are heterotrophs, which means they can not make their own food, but instead must ingest other organisms for energy.

As they chow down, they make and give off nitrogen, which is an element that plants and other higher creatures can use. Protozoa range in size from 1/5, to 1/50 of an inch (5 to µm) in diameter.

Sarcodines (Amoeboids)File Size: 2MB. The algae are single celled plant-like protists and the protozoans are single celled animal-like protists. Remember, the Protists are neither animals or plants but in a Kingdom of their own. Protozoans are further classified according to how they move and there are four types.

Other Protists. Some protozoa are classified as fungus-like, in that they live directly over a water source and live off of water soluble nutrients. A common example of a fungus-like protozoa is the slime mold.

Any protist that has the ability to make its own food through photosynthesis is not classified as a protozoa.Bacteria, Protists, and Fungi Academic Standard—4: Students recognize that plants and animals obtain energy in different ways, and they can describe some of the internal structures of organisms related to this func-tion.
