    Protozoa species move on their own by one of the three types of locomotor organelles such as flagella, cilia, or pseudopodia. Protozoa reproduce by the method of binary fission or multiple fission. Some of the members reproduce by asexual mode, some by sexual means, and some by both. Classification. The protozoa group comprises more t Protozoa (also protozoan, plural protozoans) is an informal term for single-celled eukaryotes, either free-living or parasitic, which feed on organic matter such as other microorganisms or organic tissues and debris. Historically, the protozoa were regarded as "one-celled animals", because they often possess animal-like behaviors, such as motility and predation, and lack a cell wall, as found.

    Parasitology Lecture Notes Carter Center. This lecture note is devoted to providing general aspects of parasitology in addition to covering human parasites in two major groups -the protozoa and helminths including their distribution, habitat, morphology, life cycle, pathogenicity, prevention and control, laboratory diagnosis and their relevance to Ethiopia. In recent years, new molecular biological techniques have opened up the study of the biology of these parasites, and tremendous advances have been made. This book covers this interesting and fast-moving field at an advanced level for which there is no other up-to-date : $

In most respects the general ecological properties of protozoa are not fundamentally different from those of larger organisms; yet, due to their small size, short generation times, and ubiquitous oc­ currence they often present ecological phenomena in a new and dif­ ferent light. 8) The Biology of Protozoa, Michael Sleigh, Edward Arnold, London, 9) The Biology of Paramecium, Ralph Wichterman, The Blakiston Company, New York, A classic book on biology of one of the most common protozoans - Paramecium.

All protozoal species are assigned to the kingdom Protista in the Whittaker classification. The protozoa are then placed into various groups primarily on the basis of how they move. The groups are called phyla (singular, phylum) by some microbiologists, and classes by others.

Members of the four major groups are illustrated in Figure 1. treatment emphasizes the role of environmental patchiness in time and. space, food resource specialization, and protozoan diverSity, as well as.

the role of protozoa in food chains and in the flow of carbon and other. elements in a particular ecosystem. Protozoa are notable for their ability to move independently, a characteristic found in the majority of species.

They usually lack the capability for photosynthesis, although the genus Euglena is renowned for motility as well as photosynthesis (and is therefore considered both an alga and a protozoan).Although most protozoa reproduce by asexual methods, sexual reproduction has been observed in.

Protozoa were regarded as the partner group of protists to protophyta, which have plant-like behavior, e.g. The Molecular Biology of Ciliated Protozoa covers topics that are unique to ciliates, including major molecular progress, genetics, life history, and development of ciliates.

Organized into 11 chapters, it focuses on the importance of ciliated protozoa as experimental organisms. Although protozoa are not animals, they are thought to be the ancestors of animals.
