Protista example organisms

  1. 1.  Supergroup: Excavata  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 boiling it.
  2. 2.  Supergroup: Excavata  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 males.
  3. 3.  Supergroup: Excavata  It is a Euglenozoan  Has an eyespot which it uses to “look” for its food  Uses flagella to move around
  4. 4.  Supergroup: Chromalveolata  It is a Dinoflagellate  Inhabits the Gulf of Mexico  Releases toxins that kill invertebrates and fishes.  People who eat mollusks with the toxins released by this protist can potentially die in serious cases.
  5. 5.  Supergroup: Chromalveolata  It is an Apicomplexan  It is a parasite that causes Malaria in humans  Almost all deaths due to malaria are cases of this specific protist.
  6. 6.  Supergroup: Chromalveolata  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.
  7. 7.  Supergroup: Chromalveolata  It is a Diatom  They are photosynthetic  They are found in marine environments, sometimes attached to marine life.
  8. 8.  Supergroup: Chromalveolata  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.
  9. 9.  Supergroup: Chromalveolata  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
  10. 10.  Supergroup: Chromalveolata  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
  11. 11.  Supergroup: Rhizaria  It is a Chlorarachniophyte  Is an autotrophic amoeba  Has a nucleomorph (which shows that it is an example of endosymbiosis with algae)  Contains pseudopodia
  12. 12.  Supergroup: Rhizaria  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 Mediterranean.
  13. 13.  Supergroup: Rhizaria  It is a Radiolarian  Found in ocean depths of 99- 510 meters  Have axopods that give the protists their buoyancy
  14. 14.  Supergroup: Archaeplastida  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.
  15. 15.  Supergroup: Archaeplastida  It is a Chlorophyte  Carotenoid pigments in this species turn snow red, creating a “Watermelon Snow” effect  They can carry out photosynthesis despite the temperatures.  The snow actually acts as a shield for these organisms
  16. 16.  Supergroup: Archaeplastida  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.
  17. 17.  Supergroup: Unikonta  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
  18. 18.  Supergroup: Unikonta  It is a Gymnamoeba  Eats by using pseudopods to catch the surrounding organisms  It uses pseudopods to move around as well  It is found in marshy areas
  19. 19.  Supergroup: Unikonta  It is an Entamoeba  Is pathogenic  Causes amebic dysentry  Is spread by contaminated water, food, or eating utensils
  20. 20.  Supergroup: Unikonta  It is a Nucleariid  Has been found in warm spring water in Japan  Can exist as either spherical and floating or a flattened amoeboid form  They are heterotrophic
  21. 21.  Supergroup: Unikonta  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.
