Video: Introduction to Kingdom Protista
This informative video explains the classification of protists into three basic groups: animal-like, plant-like, and fungus-like organisms.
Kingdom Protista: Life in a Drop of Water
Hundreds, even thousands, of fascinating organisms can be found in a single drop of pond water. Most are microscopic in size, and they include bacteria, protozoa, metazoa, diatoms, algae, and many others. Incredible close-up photography features dozens of these amazing life forms, including amoeba, paramecia, euglena, rotifers, water bears, and many more.
