PhylumHabitat Metabolism Reproduction Specialized Structures/Characteristics Examples
RhizopodaFreshwater, saltwater, moist soil - Ingestion by surrouding and engulfing food
- -heterotrophs
- -phagosytosis
Asexual in good conditions, sexual in stressful conditions where genetic diversity is needed -flexible
-no cell wall
-oozing movement
- contractile vacuole
-can form hard outer covering and become dormant in bad environments
-cell cytoplasm flows outward, forming a bulge, which anchors itself to the surface and pulls away

Ciliophorafreshwater Food swept into oral groove by cilia and sent to the gullet asexual-cilia
- conjugation- exchange micronuclei through oral groove
ZoomastigophoraAquatic, free floating, parasites, mutualists Heterotrophs, feed on prokaryotes that feed on dissolved matter asexually-flagellum is an extension of the cytoplasm African sleeping sickness, giardia, trypansoma
Foraminifora marineheterotrophs asexually -pseudopods
-multi- chambered shell
- sportozoen
Apicomplexa In other organisms heterotrophsProduce spores and move to next host -parasites
- not mobile on their own (mosquitoes)
