The Amazing Protists

By: Jalen Chanthalangsy


Some people might ask what is a protist? well let me explain,

protists are organisms that are classified into the kingdom Protista. The protists form a group of organisms that really do not fit into any other kingdom.

Although there is a lot of variety within the protists,they do share some common characteristics.In some biological taxonomy schemes, protists are a large and diverse group of eukaryotic microorganisms, which belong to the kingdom Protista. There have been attempts to remove the kingdom from modern taxonomy but it is still very much in use.

Here are the names of the protist you will see below:

  1. Paramecium
  2. Euglena
  3. Amoeba
  4. cilia
  5. volvox

Now the first protist well be looking at so lets get started, Paramecium is a genus of unicellular ciliated protozoa, commonly studied as a representative of the ciliate group. Paramecia are widespread in freshwater, brackish and marine environments, and are often very abundant in stagnant basins and ponds.

Amoeba is very interesting protist in my opinion because its kinda like it has super powers, it has the ability to alter shape by extending. isn't it amazing anyway lets continue on our adventure.Amoeba is a genus of single-celled amoeboid protists in the family Amoebidae. The type species of the genus is Amoeba proteus, a common freshwater organism, widely studied in classrooms and laboratories.

Now shocking news this is this is the last one,I know your probably upset :( well its ok i saved my favorite for last so here we go. Volvox is a genus of chlorophytes, a type of green algae. It forms spherical colonies of up to 50,000 cells. They live in a variety of freshwater habitats, and were first reported by Antonie van Leeuwenhoek in 1700. Ok there was the last one so i hope you enjoyed this and i hope this helps you study for the science test so GOOD LUCK EVERYBODY ON THERE TEST :)
