      1. Photosynthetic; freshwater and marine water habitats; main component of plankton
        1. Basis of the food web in most aquatic habitats-some produce neurotoxin
          1. asexual and sexual reproduction
            1. example; chlorophyta, rhodophyta,phaeophyta,chrysophyta,phrrophyta
              1. Protozoa
                1. unicellular,lack cell wall,no chlorophyll,some are pathogen
                  1. aerobic,anaerobic chemoheterotrophic organism
                    1. asexual by binary fission and mitosis, sexual by conjugation/produce gametes
                      1. major groups
                        1. Archaezoa -flagellated,trypanosoma gambiense,African sleeping sickness
                          1. Rhizopoda -Amoeba,phagocytosis,cause amoebic dysentery
                            1. Ciliophora -Paramecium,possess cilia,Balantidium coli
                              1. Apicomplexa -not motile in mature forms,obligate parasites,cause Malaria and toxoplasmosis
                              2. important in food webs and decomposing organic matter
                              3. Slime molds
                                1. moist terrestrial habitats
