  2. 2. General characteristics  Classification criteria  eukaryotes  not animal, plant or fungi That’s more ofwhat they’re not & not what they are!AP Biology

  4. 4. Problems with Protist Classification  Too Diverse!  doesn’t reflect any evolutionary relationship amongst all kingdom members paraphyletic )  ts an ho i lan ta da pl y d ll i ng des ph (in re ta la ge oa Fuclu to pi St phy ea s ria la al p oz o ha a of C ta en te m o at en an rc y ac or ni m l ph eo gl A A hl B ra Eu do lv St C A ho R Something’s not right here!AP Biology

  6. 6. Protist Diversity  The full spectrum of modes of life  from unicellular to multicellular  autotrophic to heterotrophic  asexual to sexual reproduction  pathogenic to beneficial  sessile to mobileAP Biology
  7. 7. Mobility  How Protists move  flagellum  cilia  pseudopodAP Biology
  8. 8. Protist Diversity  Animal-like Protists  heterotrophs, predators  Amoeba  Paramecium Paramecium with food vacuoles stained red  StentorAmoeba ingesting a ParameciumAP Biology
  9. 9. Protist Diversity  Plant-like Protists  autotrophs, photosynthesis  Euglena  algae  diatomsAP Biology
  10. 10. Protist Diversity  Parasitic & pathogenic Protists  malaria Plasmodium  Giardia  trypanosomes GiardiaAP Biology Trypanosoma
  11. 11. Protist Diversity  Beneficial & necessary Protists  phytoplankton  small algae + diatoms  much of the world’s photosynthesis  produces ~90% of atmospheric oxygen  zooplankton  heterotrophic protists + animals  key ecological role at base of marine food web Mmmmmm! Sounds like breakfast!AP Biology
