Some infect/infest/poison our pets, livestock and property. 4. Some are photosythetic. 5. Some provide useful products. 6. They are invaluable in the food chain. Protista: Main Characteristics Mostly single celled, some multicelled membranes. Some are photosythetic. Some are heterotrophic. * There are many arguments about the bouinderies of the Kingdom. ** The members sometimes form aggregates which are multicelled - which further confuses the issue.

Green Algae * are most similar to land plants. * They have cholroplasts. * They store carbohydrates as starch and have cellulose reinforced cell walls. * There are a few single-celled members.
