Protists and Fungi
Transcript of Protists and Fungi
designed by Péter Puklus for Prezi
Slime Molds can be colorful and often live on plants
Protists are simple eukaryotic organisms. They usually reproduce asexually, which means there is only one parent and the offspring is exactly like the parent. There are three groups of protists; fungus-like, plant-like, and animal-like
Plant-like protists make their own food (photosynthesis).
Animal-like protists eat food from the environment, are all unicellular, and usually live in wet environments
Fungi are grouped according to how they reproduce. Some fungi can reproduce sexually (which means that the offspring are not the same as the parent because DNA from another organism is included). Fungi also reproduce asexually (the offspring are the same as the parents).
Water Molds often grown on dead or living plants and animals in the water.
Some are unicellular:
Diatoms (look like cells made of glass)
Dinoflagellates and Euglenoids (use flagella to move)
Some are multicellular:
Algae can be very large and can be red, green, or brown. They are not included in the plant kingdom because they are missing many of the internal systems of plants.
Some use cilia (short hair-like structures) to move
Some use flagella (long hair-like structures) to move
Some 'ooze' to move with a pseudopod
Some protozoans can make people sick (ex-Malaria)
Fungi are mostly multicellular, but they can be unicellular.
Fungi look like plants, but they are not in the plant kingdom because they can't make their own food. Most fungi get their food from dead organisms, so they help to keep our environment clean.
Fungi are also important to our health. They can make medicine (penicillin) and they can also make
us sick (athlete's foot)
Fungus-like protists eat food from their environment, often dead or decaying plants and animals.
Fungi are classified into groups based on their reproductive structures. There are four main groups of fungi; club fungi, sac fungi, zygote fungi, and imperfect fungi.
