Protists

Animal Like, Plant Like, Fungus Like


General Characteristics

  • They live in some type of water
  • Membrane based organelles
  • Reproduce asexually
  • Simple cell structure
  • All are Eukaryotic "have a nuclease"
  • Are heterotrophic or autotrophic

Plant Like

  • Plant like protists are multicellular
  • They live in soil, on the bark of trees, in fresh water, and in salt water
  • They reproduce asexually
  • Get nutrients by photosynthesis
