    • The Kingdom of Protista Scott Mayer March 28, 2010 Biology Period 6
    • What is a Protist ?
      • Protist-Eukaryotes that are not members of the kingdoms plantae, animalia, or fungi.
      • A protist is any organism that is not a plant, animal, or prokaryote.
      • Most protists are unicellular, but few have hundreds or even thousands of cells.
    • Evolution of Protists
      • Protists were the first eukaryotic organisms on earth which first started appearing 1.5 billion years ago.
      • Some organelles in eukaryotic cells were once symbiotic prokaryotes that lived inside other cells.
    • Types of Protists
      • Animal-like: assembles cytoplasm to help wrap around prey
      • Fungus-like: contains hyphae to look like fungi, also acts as decomposers by releasing enzymes.
      • Plant-like: They can make their own food (autotrophs)
    • Protist Classification
      • Biologists have called protists the most diverse organism on the planet.
      • Protists either obtain food from the sun (photosynthesis), or from external digestion (decomposers).
