Protists use a wide variety of defensive strategies.
Ostrotrophy is the shot from cells, light flashes, toxic compounds, and cell coverings.
Minerals and ocean waste are used by other organisms.
Protists that dinoflagellates emit flashes of blue light when disturbed are parasites that may cause why ocean waters teeming with these protists display bioluminescence.
Humans view protists as pests when they harm us.
Light flashes benefit dinoflagellates by helping cultural animals and crops, but pathogenic protists also play important to reduce populations of herbivores that consume the algae.
The most important protist toxin producers are those that use light energy.
Several types of toxins affect humans and other animals because water absorbs much of the red com.
Small populations of dinoflagellates can compensate by capturing more of the blue-green light available and producing low amounts of toxin that do not harm large underwater.
Red algae produce red organisms.
Fucoxanthin from sewage, industrial discharges, and blue-green light-absorbing nitrogen and phosphorus can cause the golden and brown colors of other algae orfertilizer that washes off agricultural fields.
Carotene and the development of harmful algal blooms, which produce sufficient lutein, play similar light- absorbing roles in green algae and were toxins to affect birds, aquatic mammals, fishes, and humans.
Today, playing important becomes concentrated in organisms.
Humans who eat seafood play a role in animal nutrition.
dinoflagellate toxins can cause poisoning if they accumulate in the bonds.
The cell coverings produced by protists explain why diverse types of algae are good sources of food.
The chapter opening photo shows Slimy mucilage or spiny cell walls.
Polysaccharide polymers are used to make protective cell coverings.
Diatoms in the freshwater lakes are a mixotrophic genus.
If there is a shortage of larly resistant.
This resistance was unknown until recently.
Martha Cook and associates performed an experiment to out readily decomposing this alga in American cell walls.
To determine the degree and chemical basis of the resistance to degradation of Cladophora and compare the results to ancient fossils.
The acid mixture is used to clean the plants.
The structure of the algal remains is thought to be determined by the composition of the fibrils.
The degree of chemical resistance is determined by the dimensions of the microfibrils.
A light microscope with a crossed white appearance is used to reveal polarizers.
The materials that survive high temperatures are biochemical fossils.
A 750-million-year-old fossil is 100 Cladophora using crossed-polarizers.
The sparkling white appearance is different from those in the land plant cell walls.
Cladophora can be treated by acetolysis.
Cladophora-like algae can form as fossils because of the tough cell-wall cellulose.
Graham, Cook, and M. E. are authors.
The year 2013.
The investigators treated the fossils in the first step of the experiment.
The results are consistent with the idea that a cell wall that can tolerate acetoly chemical and microbial degradation processes is possible.
The second and third sis may have resisted degradation long enough to allow the use of two different methods to examine the formation of fossils.
boiling in concentrated acid is a good way to grow plants.
The cells of Cladophora resist chemical 10 and are usually enclosed by degradation.
The topic in this chapter is protist defensive structures.
The protist cells are enclosed by a variety of protective questions about the biochemical makeup of the cellulose-rich materials.
