    ADVERTISEMENTS: In this article we will discuss about the definition and classification of protozoa. Meaning of Protozoa: ADVERTISEMENTS: The protozoa are the simplest animals and are usually micros­copic in size. A protozoan body is regarded as a single cell but functionally it is an entire individual, performing all the vital activities which characterise a living [ ].   The biology of the Protozoa Item Preview remove-circle Protozoa, Protozoa Publisher Philadelphia, New York, Lea & Febiger This book is available with additional data at Biodiversity Heritage Library.

    ADVERTISEMENTS: As a group the protozoa are most primitive and are inhabiting the earth for about a billion and half years. Fossil forms of radiolaria and foraminiferans, half a billion years old, have been recorded. Origin: Pre-Cambrian Taxonomic Retrospect: ADVERTISEMENTS: Leeuwenhock () first gave prelimi­nary accounts of some protozoan forms after the discovery of microscope. The Biology of Protozoa MICHAEL A. SLEIGH Contemporary Biology Series Since the publication of the First Edition of this book there has been a tremendous increase of interest in the study of plant ecology as a whole, and in particular of classification and ordination.

    Protozoa pose or exemplify many general problems of population and community ecology, and of evo­ lutionary biology. In most respects the general ecological properties of protozoa are not fundamentally different from those of larger organisms; yet, due to their small size, short generation times, and ubiquitous oc­ currence they often present.

Protozoa (also protozoan, plural protozoans) is an informal term for single-celled eukaryotes, either free-living or parasitic, which feed on organic matter such as other microorganisms or organic tissues and debris.

Historically, the protozoa were regarded as "one-celled animals", because they often possess animal-like behaviors, such as motility and predation, and lack a cell wall, as found. The Biodiversity Heritage Library works collaboratively to make biodiversity literature openly available to the world as part of a global biodiversity community.

The Protozoa are considered to be a subkingdom of the kingdom Protista, although in the classical system they were placed in the kingdom Animalia. More t species have been described, most of which are free-living organisms; protozoa are found in almost every possible habitat.

Publisher Summary. Genomics, like parasitology, is a research field that thrives on the intersection among different disciplines. Parasitologists study a phylogenetically disparate assemblage of organisms chosen from global diversity on the basis of their trophic relationships to other “host” organisms, and use the tools and paradigms of biochemistry, molecular biology, physiology, and.

All protozoal species are assigned to the kingdom Protista in the Whittaker classification. The protozoa are then placed into various groups primarily on the basis of how they move. The groups are called phyla (singular, phylum) by some microbiologists, and classes by others.

Members of the four major groups are illustrated in Figure 1. The first edition of this book was published in and in it the author informed his readers that he had brought together conclusions founded on 30 years of research on the Protozoa and on an equal number of years of teaching protozoology at Columbia University and at the Marine Biological Laboratory at Woods Hole.
