 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.
 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.
 Supergroup: Excavata
 It is a Euglenozoan
 Has an eyespot which it uses to “look” for
  its food
 Uses flagella to move around
 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.
 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.
 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.
 Supergroup: Chromalveolata
 It is a Diatom
 They are photosynthetic
 They are found in marine environments,
  sometimes attached to marine life.
 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.
 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
 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
 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
 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.
 Supergroup: Rhizaria
 It is a Radiolarian
 Found in ocean depths of 99- 510 meters
 Have axopods that give the protists their
  buoyancy
 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.
 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
 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.
 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
 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
 Supergroup: Unikonta
 It is an Entamoeba
 Is pathogenic
 Causes amebic dysentry
 Is spread by contaminated water, food,
  or eating utensils
 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
 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.
