HintTerm
Are excavates, unicellular, have mitochondria, reproduce through binary fission (exclusively asexual), can be heterotrophic or photosynthetic, but some photosynthetic can become he
characterized by movement with thick bands of cilia, are all heterotrophic, unicellular but vary greatly in size ex: paramecium
unified by fine hairs that grow from the longer of 2 flagella ex: brown algae
otherwise known as 'red-algae', over 7,000 species, has chloroplasts, same ancestor as green algae
Contain amoebas and slime molds, use lobe-shaped pseudopodia used for locomotion and engulfing food through phagocytosis
very diverse, some do not contain mitochondria,
Sister taxa to brown algae, unicellular, photosynthetic, double sheets of silica, produce asexually and sexually
have 3 groups (dinoflagellates, ampicomplexans, and ciliates) unified because they all have similar stacked vessicles called alveoli a below plasma membrane
unicellular, but have multicellular 'shell), Fossilize easily, make up white cliffs of dover, part of rhizarian group
parasites found only in animals, have apical complex structure to invade host, leads to malaria. ex: plasmodium
large protists photosynthetic, multicellular, ex: giant kelp and seaweed
group that contains animals, fungi, and choanoflagellates
HintTerm
unicellular, all aquatic, have pseudopodia that is long and thin (almost rigid)
are amoebozoans, are all multicellular, moving masses of living slime, uses lobe shaped pseudopodia used for locomotion and eating, can grow indefinitely as long as there is enough
characterized by movement using thick bands of cilia, are all heterotrophic and unicellular, vary greatly in size ex: paramecium
part of excavates, sister taxa to diplomonads, lack mitochondria but ancestor had mitochondria, shows eukaryotic life is possible without mitochondria
include water molds and their land living relatives, filamentous, non motile, use external digestion for food, are NOT molds
part of excavates, sister taxa to parabasalids, lack mitochondria but ancestor had mitochondria, shows eukaryotic life is possible without mitochondria
Type of slime mold that is huge and single celled, but multinucleate (one big cell with many nuclei)
Type of slime mold that is composed of many individual cells that live colonially, represent an early form of multicellularity
unicellular, 2 flagella, marine organisms that can photosynthesize, cause twinkling effects in ocean at night, are endosymbiotic with coral
'classic amoebas', unicellular, can't form colonies, live on bottom of streams or lakes, are all heterotrophic, is an amoebozoan
are opisthokints, ancestral one was likely the ancestor to all mammals, colonial ________ look like modern sponges.
