It is a Diplomonad
Lives in the intestines of mammals
Infects people when they drink water
contaminated with feces that has the
cysts of the protist.
Causes severe diarrhea
The way to kill the this parasite is by
It is a Parabasalid
It is a sexually transmitted parasite that
infects about 5 million people each year.
It travels along the reproductive and
urinary tracts by moving its flagellum
along the mucous- coated linings.
Is known to infect the vagina in females,
but can also infect the urinary tract in
It is a Euglenozoan
Has an eyespot which it uses to “look” for
Uses flagella to move around
It is a Dinoflagellate
Inhabits the Gulf of Mexico
Releases toxins that kill invertebrates and
People who eat mollusks with the toxins
released by this protist can potentially
die in serious cases.
It is an Apicomplexan
It is a parasite that causes Malaria in
Almost all deaths due to malaria are
cases of this specific protist.
It is a Ciliate
They contain many cilia that help them
to move around and capture their prey
They live in fresh water
They have 2 nuclei
It is sometimes referred to as a
“slipper” because of its shape.
It is a Diatom
They are photosynthetic
They are found in marine environments,
sometimes attached to marine life.
It is a Golden algae
It is flagellated, which aids in its mobility.
It produces a toxin that kills fish. However,
it poses no known threat to humans.
It is a Brown algae
It is commonly known as “Giant Kelp”
It is found in the eastern Pacific Ocean
It can grow up to 45 meters long, as
many as 2 feet a day
It is an Oomycete
Causes potato late blight, which turn the
roots of potato plants to black slime
Cause of the potato famine in Ireland
It is a Chlorarachniophyte
Is an autotrophic amoeba
Has a nucleomorph (which shows that it
is an example of endosymbiosis with
It is a Foram
It is a found in marine environments and
can survive under high salinity
Has been found in a variety of places,
including European seas, around Guam,
in the Gulf of Mexico, and in the
It is a Radiolarian
Found in ocean depths of 99- 510 meters
Have axopods that give the protists their
It is a Red algae
It is brownish- red in color
It is found in Ireland and Britain
It is a seasonal algae, appearing
between October to March.
It is a Chlorophyte
Carotenoid pigments in this species turn
snow red, creating a “Watermelon
They can carry out photosynthesis
despite the temperatures.
The snow actually acts as a shield for
It is a Charophycean
It is sometimes, although rarely, found in
the Baltic Sea at very low salinities
It is mainly found in fresh water in
northeastern Europe, particularly Finland,
Sweden, and Russia.
It is a Slime mold
Is most commonly found on forest floors
Is used frequently in studying
multicellularity, because they are
examples of how they mutate so that
they can reproduce
It is a Gymnamoeba
Eats by using pseudopods to catch the
It uses pseudopods to move around as
It is found in marshy areas
It is an Entamoeba
Causes amebic dysentry
Is spread by contaminated water, food,
or eating utensils
It is a Nucleariid
Has been found in warm spring water in
Can exist as either spherical and floating
or a flattened amoeboid form
They are heterotrophic
It is a Choanoflagellate
Has been a major topic of study because its
genome has revealed that it has many
similarities to algae.
Because it has so many similarities, a
hypothesis suggests that in early
evolutionary history, a Choanoflagellate
engulfed an algae, and this particular
species is the result.
