A one-celled, microscopic organism belonging to any of several families of rhizopods that move and feed using pseudopodia and reproduce by fission; esp., any of a genus (Amoeba) found in soil or water or a parasitic genus (Entamoeba) found in higher animals and humans
Any individual animal, plant, bacterium, etc. having various parts or systems that function together as a whole to maintain life and its activities
Any of a genus (Euglena) of green protists with a single flagellum, a reddish eyespot, and a flexible body shape
Any of various protozoans of the subphylum Mastigophora that move by means of one or more flagella. Some flagellates can make food by photosynthesis (such as euglenas and volvox), and are often classified as green algae by botanists. Others are symbiotic or parasitic (such as trypanosomes). Flagellates are related to amoebas.
Any of a genus (Paramecium) of one-celled, elongated, slipper-shaped ciliates moving by means of cilia and having a backward-curving oral groove that ends with the mouth
Any of various protozoans of the genus Plasmodium, which includes the parasites that cause malaria.
Any of several trumpet-shaped ciliate protozoans of the genus Stentor, living in freshwater habitats and feeding chiefly on smaller microorganisms.
A cell is defined as the smallest unit of an organism with a nucleus.
Any of a large variety of usually one-celled organisms belonging to the kingdom Protista (or Protoctista). Protists are eukaryotes and live in water or in watery tissues of organisms. Some protists resemble plants in that they produce their own food by photosynthesis, while others resemble animals in consuming organic matter for food. Protist cells are often structurally much more elaborate than the cells of multicellular plants and animals. Protists include the protozoans, most algae, diatoms, oomycetes, and the slime molds.
