BIO105 I need help doing a biology lab Protista

PRE-LAB QUESTIONS

1. Describe the three modes of locomotion found in protists.

2. Why are slime-molds considered “fungi-like protists” and not true fungi?

3. Why do you think so much attention is paid to the informal group protozoa by the
medical research community?

Protista

EXPERIMENT 1: VIEWING PRESERVED SPECIES OF
PROTISTS

Post-Lab Questions

1. Draw each organism from Figures 6 and 7 in the space provided below and label the
major structures.

2. Answer the following questions:

a. What type of locomotion do you think each protist employs?

Figure 6:

Figure 7:

3. What advantage do you think a protist would gain by being autotrophic, heterotrophic, or
mixotrophic?

Reflection (Discuss what you have learned by doing this experiment. How have your ideas
changed? Do you have any new questions? What connections did you make between the lab
and lecture?):

Protista

EXPERIMENT 2: VIEWING LIVE SPECIMENS

Post-Lab Questions

1. In the space provided below, draw the various members of the protist kingdom that you
were able to observe. Next to each drawing, describe the speed and type of locomotion
you observed.

2. Did you notice a difference in the protists when the slowing agent was used? Which
members were you able to see more clearly? Were there species that were still moving
too fast to see clearly? Could you identify any species specifically? Do any of them look
similar to specimens you observed in the first lab?
