Fungus like protists slime molds slime molds usually measure about one or two centimeters, but a few slime molds are as big as several meters they often have bright colors, such as a vibrant yellow ( figure 11.

A protist (/ ˈ p r oʊ t ɪ s t /) is any eukaryotic organism (one with cells containing a nucleus) that is not an animal, plant or fungus the protists do not form a natural group, or clade, since they exclude certain eukaryotes but, like algae or invertebrates, they are often grouped together for convenience. Notes: kingdom protista protists are microscopic, unicellular organisms, with a nucleus and other specialized cell structures before beginning to study the notes on protists, take a look at the following short video from teachers domain titled single celled organisms. They are known as slime molds and there are two types cellular and acellular also there are water molds which are a separate group of primarily aquatic molds that act as parasites on land.
Protists and fungi are classified in kingdom protista and kingdom fungi, respectively both protists and fungi are less organized organisms when compared with plants and animals but, both consists of membrane-bound organelles like golgi apparatus and er. Fungus-like protists a fungus is an organism that obtains its food from dead organic matter or from the body of another organism the protists that obtain their food in this way are fungus-like protists. Fungus-like protists about 475 species water molds, mildew, slime molds plant-like protists some unicellular, many multicellular dinoflagellates, diatoms, euglena, cocolithophore green, brown, and red algaes green are sea lettuce, small, short type of things.
One-celled, animal-like protist that can live in water, soil, and living and dead organisms 13 temporary cytoplasmic extension used by some protists to move about and trap food. Fungus-like protists usually do not move, but some develop movement at some point in their lives there are essentially three types of fungus-like protists (see table below): water molds downy mildews slime molds slime molds represent the characteristics of the fungus-like protists. Some fungi-like protists are so much like fungi that it's hard to draw the line there is a group known as chytrids which are so simple, most scientists have included them in the protists they are so much a part of the fungi kingdom that a few others have grouped them with the fungi.
What are fungus-like protists they are protists that absorb their food from dead organic matter they are grouped into 2 groups, slime molds and water molds most fungus-like protists use psuepods, (false feet) to move around a water mold another type of fungus-like protists is water mold most of them are small single-celled organisms. Fungi‐like protista the kingdom protista was established in the 1860s as a place for the slime molds that are plant‐like in forming spores in multinucleate, erect, sporangia and having cellulose in their cell walls, animal‐like in having an amoeboid stage in their life cycle during which they creep about ingesting their food, and fungal. Animal like protists protists that are classified as animal-like are called protozoans and they share some common traits with animals all animal-like protists are heterotrophs and they are able to move around in their environment in order to find food.
The protists can be classified into one of three main categories, animal-like, plant-like, and fungus-like grouping into one of the three categories is based on an organism's mode of reproduction, method of nutrition, and motility. They are grouped into 3 categories: animal like (protozoa), fungus like, and plant-like according to the categories, they have different modes of nutrition, like heterotrophy or autotropohy plant-like protists (algae) have chlorophyll and accessory pigments, named xanthophylls, phycobilins, and carotene. Bio 101l: principles of biology laboratory bacteria, protists, and fungi introduction this lab marks the beginning of our study of the diversity of life.
Before you leave at the end of the laboratory period you should be able to tell a plant-like protist (alga) from a fungus, and specify the kingdom of each you should know how to recognize the haploid and diploid (and dikaryotic) phases of each organism studied, and what cells were formed by mitosis and by meiosis. Protists and fungi questions for your custom printable tests and worksheets in a hurry browse our pre-made printable worksheets library with a variety of activities and quizzes for all k-12 levels. Protists welcome to the protists home page, here you will learn about what protists are and where they can be found, also what they look like. The fungi-like protists of kingdom protista comprise a group including slime molds and water molds these molds are simple, unicellular organisms that are fungi-like in appearance and habitat, according to cliffs notes.
