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