									Zoology - Chapter 8 – Animal-Like Protists
The kingdom ______________ is a polyphyletic group that arose about ____________ billion years ago from the ________________. The
evolutionary pathways leading to ____________ _____________ are uncertain. Protozoa are both _______________ cells and entire
_________________. Organelles specialized for the _________________ lifestyle carry out many protozoan ______________. The
_______________ is an arrangement of ____________ microtubules in the plasma membrane of many protozoa that maintains their
_____________. The cytoplasm is divided into __________ regions. The part just beneath the pellicle that is clear and firm is the
________________ and the inner part which is more fluid is the _______________. Freshwater protozoa have a specialized structure
called the _______________ _____________ to remove excess ____________. Most protozoa _____________ dissolved nutrients by
________________ _______________ or ingesting food through endocytosis in a _____________ _____________. After digestion is
complete, the vacuoles are called ________________ vacuoles and they release waste by exocytosis.
Both ___________ and _____________ reproduction occur among the protozoa. The simplest and most _____________ form of asexual
reproduction is ____________ ____________, where ______________ produces two nuclei that distributed into ___________ similar-

followed by the incorporation of ____________ nucleus into a cytoplasmic __________ that is much smaller than the parent cell.
______________ ______________ or schizogony occurs when a large number of _________________ cells form from the division of a
______________ protozoan.
