Protist Pre-Lab Colin Van Es Biol1201 AA September 18, 2007 I knew a little about eukaryotes prior to writing this pre-laboratory report. I did know that protists are a specific type of eukaryote and that eukaryotes are organisms that are living, including plants and animals, as well as unicellular organisms. I also knew that their cells included organelles and membranes and such. Of these organelles I knew of the mitochondria, nucleus, golgi bodies, cytoskeleton, and cytosol. Also, the cells have membranes that protect the inside of them and the nucleus has a membrane as well to separate and hold in the genetic material it contains. I also knew that protein plays a major role in the life of a eukaryotic cell. I did now know: 1) protists are separated based on locomotion because that is the easiest way to identify them, 2) Algae and its relatives are protists, 3) The classifications are Flagellates, Amoeboids, Ciliates, and Sporoza, 4) there are about 60 types, and 5)

Unformatted text preview: some are fungus like. The information above will be useful in the lab because this lab is dedicated to better understanding the processes of a protist. Specifically, digestion, reproduction, and movement will be observed in unicellular protists. The information above will allow me to identify what I am seeing and look for the proper process to observe. The simple physical characteristics will be observed such as size, shape, internal and external features. Inside of the protists, I may be able to notice other protists that are being digested. This will allow me to understand eating habits and perhaps some other protists. Also, multicellular eukaryotes will be observed. The multi-cellular protists will be different forms of algae. Comparisons will be made between the unicellular and multicellular protists....
