    Kingdom Protista is an important phase in early evolution and the very first protist probably evolved billion years ago. Kingdom Protista is a very large group comprising of at least 16 phyla. Many species of this kingdom are the primary producers in the aquatic ecosystem and some are responsible for serious human diseases like malaria. Protist Diversity **PPE is not required for this lab, but you may want to bring a pair of gloves. You will require your text book Biological Science during this lab** Learning Objectives Building on the learning objectives from your lab syllabus, you will be expected to: 1. Recognize and identify (to genus) the organisms covered in lab; make.

    Protist is the international forum for reporting substantial and novel findings in any area of research on protists. The criteria for acceptance of manuscripts are scientific excellence, significance, and interest for a broad readership. Suitable subject areas include: molecular, cell and developmental biology, biochemistry, systematics and phylogeny, and ecology of protists. a group of protists that is characterized by fine, hairlike projecions on their flagella (though in many stramenopiles, flagella are present only at certain stages of life). The three major sub-groups are water mold, diatoms, and the brown algae.

    Protist is the name of a taxonomic kingdom of one-celled and multi-celled organisms that includes protozoa (microscopic animals), protophyta (microscopic plants) and fungus-like slime molds. Many protists are harmful to humans, other animals and plants because they cause diseases and crop failures. However, some.

There is convincing evidence that we know only about 20% of the actual diversity in many protist groups, especially saprotrophs and heterotrophs such as amoebae, flagellates, and ciliates. It is probable that this great diversity of microscopic organisms is caused by low extinction rates over geological time, and short generation times which foster dispersal of genetic variants.

Protist Diversity and Geographical Distribution / Edition 1. by W.

The protists, essentially eukaryotes that cannot be classi?ed in the kingdoms of animals, fungi, or plants, include some of the lea- known groups of organisms on earth.

They are generally treated as a separate kingdom, commonly named Protista (or Protoctista) in textbooks, but in reality they are a mixture of organisms with disparate a?nities. from book Protist Diversity and Geographical Distribution (pp) Distribution and diversity of aquatic protists: an evolutionary and ecological perspective Chapter January with 68 Reads.

Protists occur in freshwater, saltwater, soil, and as symbionts within other organisms. Due to this tremendous diversity, classification of the Protista is difficult. Abstract. About 4, free-living ciliate morphospecies have been described, applying an average synonymy rate of 20%.

We estimate that 83–89% of the ciliate diversity is still undescribed, using the following probabilities: detailed habitat studies suggest that the described number of morphospecies must be doubled: 4, → 9,; this figure has to be increased by about 50% due to species Cited by: from book Protist Diversity and Geographical Distribution (pp) Diversity and geographic distribution of ciliates (Protista: Ciliophora) Chapter July with Reads.

There are Protists with a Restricted Geographical Distribution. I basically agree with Finlay and Fenchel that most free-living protists are cosmopolitan, at least at the morphological level. I am, however, opposed to the biased view they hold in their most recent paper (Finlay and Fenchel ).Cited by: The true scale of this diversity is unknown, and so are the distribution of this diversity, its patterns, spatial and temporal dynamics, and ecological role.

The sampled diversity appears to be just the tip of the ice-berg, and this oVers outstanding opportunities for microbial discovery for the purposes of both basic and applied research.

The diversity of sequences within groups was very large, particularly that of ciliates, and a number of them were very divergent from known species, which could define new intra-phylum groups.

This suggests that, contrary to current ideas, the diversity of freshwater protists is far from being completely by:. Although constituting more thandescribed species, protists are virtually ignored within the arena of biodiversity conservation.

One reason is the widespread belief that the majority of protists have cosmopolitan distributions, in contrast to the highly hetereogenous biogeography of the “mega-Metazoa”.

However, modern research reveals that about one third of the known protists have Cited by: 7.Although protist diversity patterns have been surveyed in different habitats, only a few studies have attempted to address the distribution of protists in relation to geographic distance (Lepère et al.,Logares et al., ).
