KPCOFGS Kingdom Protista Members of the Kingdom Protista are Eukaryotic. Some are one-celled, and others are many-celled. Only some members make their own food, and others obtain it from other organisms. Some move. Kindom Protista Phylum HETEROKONTOPHYTA There are more than 100,000 known species in Phylum Heterokontophyta. This phylum contains mostly algae, ranging from the huge multicellular kelp, to the unicellular diatoms, which are a primary component of plankton. Phylum Heterokontophyta Class Cosinodiscophyceae Cosinodiscophyceae is a class of diatom. It is similar to Order Centrales. This order is a traditional, paraphyletic subdivision of the heterokont algae known as diatoms. Class Cosinodiscophyceae Order Thalassiosirales Order Thalassiosirales There are 72 species of thalassiosirales. There is 50 species in family Thalassiosiraceae. Family Thalassiosiraceae Genus Thalassiosira Species T. pseudonana Food The Thalassiosira Pseudonana has a pray and pedator with oysters. The oysters eat the Thalassiosira Pseudonana. Thalassiosira Pseudonana are photosynthetic, meaning they make their own food. Food Relationship Family Thalassiosiraceae Reproduction Sexual or Asexual? Thalassiosira Pseudonana reproduce sexually. Related Organisms Some closely related organisms to Thalassiosira Pseudonana are Thalassiosira Oceanica and Thalassiosira giullardii. Those three organisms all share the same genus, Genus Thalassiosira. Adaptions Thalassiosira Pseudonana live in marine water, so of coarse, they know how to survive in salty water. They also live extremely deep in this water, so they know how to survive in very high pressure. Habitat and Biome Thalassiosira Pseudonana live in the open ocean biome. They live about 150-200 m. below the surface. Since it is so deep, not much light get's to them, so they live in the dark. The Effects on the Ecosystem if Thalassiosira Pseudonana were Gone! If Thalassiosira Pseudonana were gone, the ecosystem would not last long because it and many other diatoms are the begining of the food chain. Other Interesting Facts - They can be from 4 to 6 um.
