Different types of Protists-
An Ameba is a protozoan. A protozoan is a unicellular animal-like protist. Amebas live in fresh water mostly. To gain nutrition and energy the amoeba takes in prey with its pseudopod by surrounding their meal. Then it is able to digest the meal in its food vacuole.An Ameba is able to reproduce asexually.
Paramecia is oval-shaped. A paramecia is a protozoan. It cannot make its own food. Paramecia are unicellular. It lives in fresh water. The edges are covered in cilia. Cilia is tiny hair-like structures. A paramecia uses cilia for moving and capturing its own food.
Euglenas are unicellular algae. It contains chlorophyll, yet it is plantlike and animal-like. It can use photosynthesis by having its eyespot detect light. It uses its flagellum (a tail- like extension) to move. When the eyespot detects no light, it can take in food to survive.
Algae is a plant-like protist. Algae contain chlorophyll and carry out photosynthesis. Algae produces lots of the earths oxgen. Multicellular algae are classified by its color. There are 3 groups of algae. Euglenophyla, Bacillarriophyta, and Dinoflagellata are the types.
Trypanosomes are protozoans. When in contact to humans it causes a disease also called African sleeping sickness. Some symtoms are fever, headaches, confusion, and uncontrolable sleepyness. It also causes disease to horses and cattle. This disease is mostly found in sub-saharan Africa.
Diatoms are in the group of eukaryotic algae. They are a type of phytoplanton. Most diatoms are unicellular. They are producers. Diatoms float on the top of fresh and salt water. They store there food inside there cells. Diotoms havbeen here science the jurassic period.
