Observation The amoeba is visible under a compound light microscope. Its fluid movement and noticeable nucleus are easy to see. Scientist have seen them actively feed under the microscope and how they maintain their form while doing so. The paramecium is visible under the compound light microscope as well. Most protist, you can’t see its physical features and organelles. The paramecium’s cilia and macronucleus are seen clearly through the lens. They move aimlessly about on the stage. Planaria were observed under a dissecting microscope where the stage cannot be adjusted for view. They were placed in a petri dish for observation as well as dissected to study the regeneration of their bodies. Apparently, they can almost regenerate like sea stars. When cut in half, one half will grow a planarian and the other will do the same. No matter the direction of the laceration, the planaria will be able to grow that section back. Euglenia were very difficult to spot under the compound light microscope. They have a red spot exposing the nucleus. If carefully spotted, the flagellum can be seen propelling the organism forward.

    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.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    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.
