Transcript of Protists vs. Fungi

Protists vs. Fungi Protists are eukaryotic.
They are also
multicellular, and
reproduce using
sexual reproduction. For nutrition, some absorb,
some digest, and some are
photosynthetic. There are many ways
protists reproduce:
-asexually by mitosis
-meiosis and sexual
reproduction They move using flagella
and cilia. Protists are found most
anywhere near water, such
as lakes, oceans, damp soil,
and sand. Some main diseases
asscociated with protists
-lyme disease
-dental cavities Examples of protists
-moss Protists form spores,
they don't reproduce
by forming endospores. Fungi have walls
made of chitin, they
are parasitic, and
store glycogen. Fungi are heterotrophic,
and they absorb and decompose
organisms for nutrition. They reproduce using nuclear mitosis, which is diffferent than normal mitosis. Fungi are passed around by air or wind but cannot move on their own. Most fungi are located on moldy bread, forest floors, acid enviroments, soil, and possibly on your body. Diseases include athlete's foot, fineacaptis, and derma tomycoses. Examples include mushrooms, molds, and yeast. They are also composed of a filament called hypae, and they have cell walls.
