1 6 kingdoms of Life 1. Plants 2. Animals 3. Fungi 4. Archaebacteria 5. Eubacteria 6. PROTISTA

2 Kingdom Protista FUNGUS-LIKE PROTISTS… The slime molds and water molds PLANT-LIKE PROTISTS……. The Algae ANIMAL LIKE PROTISTS…. The protozoa

3 SLIME MOLD… a fungus-like protist

4 Yellow slim mold… a colony of thousands of single celled amoeba like

5 Are you smarter than a slime mold?

6 More slime mold

7 Pretzel Slime Mold

8 Slime mold recreates rail-lines and interstate highways when grown on a map

9 Water Mold… a fungus-like protist

10 Water Mold… not a fungus… a protist

11 ANIMAL-LIKE PROTISTS ( Protozoans )

12 This amoeba is about to “eat” the algae cells. Amoebas are single celled “animal-like” protists

13 An amoeba has a EUKARYOTIC cell (cell with a nucleus and many organelles )

14 WHY is an Amoeba NOT a bacteria? BACTERIA CELL No nucleus No mitochondria No E.R. No Golgi apparatus No vacuoles AMOEBA CELL Has a nucleus Has mitochondria Has E.R. Has Golgi apparatus Has vacuoles

15 Death by Amoeba: Some twin cities youth lost their lives to an amoeba which infected their brain after swimming in a certain lake

16 Amoeba reproducing asexually

17 A single Amoeba

18 Paramecia.. Animal like protists

19 Paramecia conjugating = trading DNA (similar to sexual reproduction )

20 Paramecia. 1 cell big, but notice the small hairs called “cilia” covering each cell

21 Paramecium dividing


23 Euglena. A single celled protist… half plant… half animal

24 Euglena with a single flagellum visible coming from the tip of each cell

25 Euglena with a red eyespot clearly visible. Chloroplasts are also clearly visible

26 Euglena… common in our lakes and ponds in Douglas County

27 KELP a plant-like protist. Kelp forests make rich habitat in oceans for many other creatures

28 Gas filled bladders on kelp help to float the “leaves” of this protist

29 Kelp forest. Kelp can grow 2 meters per day = 6 feet! Very important producer

30 Kelp attach to the ocean bottom with “holdfasts”

31 Sea urchins are animals which nibble through then holdfasts of kelp…sometimes setting the kelp adrift

32 Sea urchins on Kelp

33 Spirogyra… a plant like protist. We call plant like protists… ALGAE

34 Spirogyra… common here in Alex. Not a plant! A plant-like protist. ( algae )

35 Spirogyra algae

36 Volvox… a colony of green algae cells common in Douglas County

37 Volvox. A plant like protists

38 Anabaena… a green alga

39 Anabaena… a plant like protist ( algae )

40 Water Net. A Green alga

41 ?

42 Algae farms in the desert. Could these protists produce enough oil to power our vehicles?

43 . Over 70% of earth’s oxygen is produced by algae. Thank you little green photosynthetic algae dudes !!

44 Bubbles of oxygen in the sunlight as photosynthesis happens

45 Single celled algae living inside of coral.= mutualism. The algae make food for the coral animal during photosynthesis. What if you had algae living in your skin?

46 Green alga inside coral animals

47 Sponges. These are animals which are green because of an alga living inside.

48 Sloth fur is excellent algae habitit

49 Sloth with algae in fur

50 Red Tide. Caused by a plant-like protist with red pigment ( red alga )

51 The organism which causes red-tide… a red-alga which releases a nerve toxin

52 Red tide

53 Toxins released by the alga during a red tide can kill millions of fish

54 Red tides can also kill manatees

55 Diatoms. Plant like protists with a silica shell. Shell has many holes

56 A single diatom magnified hundreds of times

57 Diatoms shells are added to toothpaste, pool filters and road paint.

58 Close-up of a diatom shell showing the holes in the shell.

59 White cliffs of Dover… Dover England. The entire cliff is made of Diatom fossils


61 The anopheles mosquito.. Carries the protist which causes malaria.

62 Anopheles mosquito injecting plasmodium protozoans into human.



65 Bed nets help to prevent malaria
