BIO 160 Week 4 Notes: EukaryotesProtista  Protist: Includes all eukaryotes that are not green plants, fungi or animals o Mostly single-celled o Photosynthetic and Non photosynthetic o Diverse morphology o Occupy many habitats o Alternation of generations common  Protists are paraphyletic because the group includes a common ancestor and some but not all of its decedents. Common ancestor is Eukaryotes and includes Protists but not green plants, fungi, or animals.  Categorized into 7 major categories called Clades o Amoebozoa o Excavata o Plantae o Rhizaria o Alveolata o Stramenopila o Opisthokonta  There are two major clades of Eukaryotes: o Unikonta-eukaryotes with one flagella o Bikonta-eukaryotes with two flagella  Eukaryotes and the Nucleus: Possibilities of its origin o In folding of plasma membrane around chromosomes o Endosymbiosis of Achaea and Bacteria o Endosymbiosis of virus and microbe o * None of these seem to have more credibility than the other and it is still highly disputed today. Symbiosis: Individuals of two different species live in physical contact, often for mutual benefit Endosymbiosis: occurs when an individual of one species lives inside an individual of another specie
