Protist

- Eukaryotic organism that cannot be classified as an animal , plant , or fungi

Pseudopods

a "false foot" or temporary bilge of cytoplasm used for feeding and movement in some protozoans

Cilia

Symbiosis

Mutualism

Type of symbiosis in which both partners benefit from living together.

Algae

Autotrophs
plant like protists

pigments

Chemical that produces color

spore

Tiny cell that is able to grow into a new organism

Fungi

--eukaryotes that have cell walls, are heterotrophs that feed by absorbing their food, and use spores to reproduce
--they need moist, warm places in which to grow. They thrive on moist foods, damp tree barks, lawns coated with dew, damp forest floors, and even wet bathroom tiles.

Hyphae

The branching, threadlike tubes that make up the bodies of multicellular fungi.

fruiting bodies

The reproductive structure of a fungus that contains many hyphae and produces spores.

budding

A form of asexual reproduction of yeast in which a new cell grows out of the body of a parent.

lichen

The combination of a fungus and either an alga or an autotrophic bacterium that live together in a mutualistic relationship.

Protozoan

animal like protist
