Transcript of Blepharisma, Volvox, and Vinegar Eels

Microorganisms
single celled organism
Blepharisma
single celled organism that lives in colonies
Volvox
multicellular organism
Vinegar Eels
What and how do they eat?
Blepharisma eat yeast, bacteria, and other microorganisms. Sometimes they are cannibals (they eat each other) when they can't find food. They use the little hairs on their body called cilia to help them move food.
How do
they move?
Blepharisma beat the hundreds of tiny cilia on their body to help them move.
How do
they
reproduce?
Blepharisma reproduce
by binary fission.
Where do
they live?
Blepharisma
live in fresh and salt water.
How do
they move?
Volvox use flagella which are whip-like. All of the flagella move together in a colony to help them propel through the water.
What and how do they eat?
Volvox are similar to plants. They need sunlight to survive because they create their food through a process called photosynthesis.
How do
they
reproduce?
Volvox also reproduce by binary fission. As the cells split, the colonies grow. When the colony becomes too big, it (the parent) will break and daughter colonies will escape.
Where do
they live?
Volvox live in freshwater (ponds, puddles, and ditches).
What and how do they eat?
Vinegar eels have a digestive system similar to ours! They eat with their mouths! Vinegar eels feed on the acid-loving bacteria that make vinegar from fermented apple juice.
Where do
they live?
Vinegar eels live in acidic oceans and lakes. Also, you can find them in vinegar that is not pasteurized.
How do
they
reproduce?
Vinegar eels produce and give birth to live young.
How do
they move?
Vinegar eels move like a whip. The use their muscles to move their body.
