Are considered members of the Domian Eukarya because they contain a membrane enclosed nucleaus and organelles unlike their prokaryotic ancestors.
mode of nutrition
Heterotrophic, parasitic (causes malaria), changes surface proteins
Paramecium cellular structure
Macronucleus, Micronucleus, cilia, contractile vacuole, oral groove; unicellular
Euglena cellular structure
Pellicle, chloroplast, flagella, eyespot; crystalline rod in flagella;unicellular
Dinoflagellates mode of nutrition
Autotrophic (photosynthetic), heterotrophic;
Abundant blooms cause of "red tide";
Providers of food for coral reefs.
Dinoflagellates cellular structure
Chloroplast, two flagella, cellulose plate covering, Alveoli, unicellular, colonial
Some mutualistic symbionts of coral polyps; part of phytoplankton
Diatoms mode of nutrition
Autotrophic (photosynthetic); stores food as laminarin;
Help to provide oxygen to the atmosphere
