The choanoflagellates are a group of free-living unicellular and colonial flagellate eukaryotes considered to be the closest living relatives of the animals. Choanoflagellates are collared flagellates having a funnel shaped collar of interconnected microvilli at the base of a flagellum.
The ciliates are a group of protozoans characterized by the presence of hair-like organelles called cilia, which are identical in structure to eukaryotic flagella, but are in general shorter and present in much larger numbers, with a different undulating pattern than flagella.
Eukaryotic Microbes Parasites Protozoa, Helminths, Arthropods Eukaryotic Microbes Table 12.1 Protozoa • Life Stages – – Trophozoite -vegetative; feeding, mostly motile – Cyst – dormant; protective thick wall • Most are free living in water and soil • Classified by motility & life cycle • Subdivided by location in human host (GI, blood, GU) 1.
Prokaryotic and Eukaryotic are two different classifications of organisms. Prokaryotes are very small and do not have membrane-bound organelles. They have one circular ring of DNA . They are always single-celled. Prokaryotes common name is bacteria. Eukaryotes, on the other hand, are different. They have membrane-bound organelles and have linear DNA . They can be single-celled, but are often multicellular organisms.
The dinoflagellates (Greek δῖνος dinos "whirling" and Latin flagellum "whip, scourge") are a large group of flagellate eukaryotes that constitute the phylum Dinoflagellata. Most are marine plankton, but they also are common in freshwater habitats.
Eukaryotes (also spelled "eucaryotes") comprise animals, plants, and fungi—which are mostly multicellular - as well as various other groups that are collectively classified as protists (many of which are unicellular). In contrast, prokaryotes are organisms, such as bacteria and archaea, that lack nuclei and other complex cell structures.
Foraminifera remain single-celled despite the large sizes they reach. Among the protozoa, even the smaller forams stand husky and hence they face the problem of sustaining the surface/volume ratio. And this is where the reticulopodia, a highly efficient and multifunctional organelle, come into play.
Eukaryotic cells arose from prokaryotic cells and have a more complex organization than prokaryotic cells. Much of the activity of prokaryotic cells takes place in the cytoplasm. The activities in eukaryotic cells happen in enclosed structures called organelles.
The heterokonts or stramenopiles (formally, Heterokonta or Stramenopiles) are a major line of eukaryotes currently containing more than 25,000 known species. Most are algae, ranging from the giant multicellular kelp to the unicellular diatoms, which are a primary component of plankton.
Plants are one of the groups of multicellular eukaryotes with cell walls. The other are fungi. Unlike fungi, plants' cell walls are composed of cellulose. Together with pressure in their extremely large central vacuoles, these cell walls let them keep their shape, unlike animal cells that rely on internal protein skeletons to maintain their shape.
Bacteria and protozoa are very distantly related, with bacteria classified as prokaryotes and protists as eukaryotes. This means that protozoa are more closely related to humans than either is to...
