TMW HOMEWORK #5 Chapter 12 Why is it incorrect to call mitosis “cell division” Mitosis is a form of nuclear division that produces two haploid daughter cells. Direct cell division called cytokinesis that typically occurs with telophase in mitosis. Why did early taxonomist categorize such obviously different microorganisms as parabasalids, diplomonads, euglenosoa, alveolates, rhizaria and amoebozoa in a single taxon, protozoa? Because early taxonomist only classified the protozoa based on the its mode of locomotion. With better technology has led to better understanding of how these microorganisms should be classified. Electron microscopy make is possible to really distinguish individual features and nucleotide sequencing help categorize protozoa’s. Trichomonas A parabasalid, which lives in the human vagina.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
