  • Observing Protists Through Hay Infusion Preparation

    Observing Protists through Hay Infusion Preparation Abstract: Protists are known to be the very first eukaryotic organisms on earth. The Kingdom Protista was first classified by Haeckel in the year 1866. Now‚ there are many known species of protists. After learning about protists in class‚ the group decided to observe the different species of protists found in pond water. The group prepared a preparation to be able to culture the protists until it was time to view them. After a few days‚ the

    Protists Protists are a very large‚ diverse group of organisms‚ including the plant-like protists (algae)‚ fungi-like protists‚ and the animal-like protists (protozoans). They are all eukaryotic‚ and most are unicellular. Traditional taxonomy of protists (Kingdom Protista) did not accurately represent evolutionary relationships‚ so the classification of this group is unsettled.  Modern taxonomy has rearranged the group formerly known as Kingdom Protista‚ separating the different types of organisms

  • Lab Report About Examination of Protozoan Cultures

    in order to identify characteristics associated with cell structure and movement of these one-celled organisms. We found that Protists exhibit certain characteristics that allow them to be categorized into different groups‚ mainly determined by their locomotion patterns. Despite differences in locomotion and the varying plant-like and animal-like organelles‚ all protists share key characteristics and functions that allow them to feed‚ grow‚ and reproduce--processes essential for survival and common
