Station #1: Prokaryotic VS Eukaryotic Cells
If the website is not already opened, go to:
Start by exploring each of the prokaryotic, animal, and plant cells to rekindle your knowledge of the
organelles that exist in each type of cell. Answer all questions on the site, as well as the ones below. Feel
free to play around with the online “construct a cell” to familiarize yourself with the constructions of each
of the cells. Once you have answered all questions, use any of the material provided to construct correctly
ONE prokaryotic cell and ONE eukaryotic cell with your partner. Use your creativity, but make sure all
organelles for each type of cell are present!! 
1. Which of the organelles is found in both prokaryotic and eukaryotic cells and what is it used for?
 Cell membrane
 Used for regulation of entry and exit of nutrients and waste where some important
enzyme activity is found
2. Which organelle is found only in plant cells and what is it used for?
 Chloroplasts
 Site of photosynthesis, converting light energy into chemical energy
Station #2: Kingdom Protista
1. Why does the protist kingdom provide a challenge to taxonomists?
The protist kingdom provides a challenge to taxonomists because they are so varied – some are animal like,
some plant like, some fungus like. They do not appear to fall into a ‘set’ and ‘distinctive’ category.
2. Where does our text place the algae? Where do other taxonomists place the algae and why?
Kingdom Protista; These taxonomists believe that algae are multicellular eukaryotes that perform
photosynthesis –which are also how plants are defined.
3. How does our text separate protists into groups?
Protists are separated into groups based on nutritional patterns. Animal-like, Fungus-like, Plant-like.
4. Fill in the following table.
Animal-Like Protists – General Characteristics
Characteristics and Examples
 One or more flagella to help organism move through water
Heterotrophic – eat other protists, parasites, pathogens
Others are internal parasites on animals
Single celled – no body shape
Pseudopods to help them move and feed
Endocytosis – eat by engulfing organisms with pseudopods
Some are parasitic in tropical regions
Covered in cilia (hairlike projections)
Rigid covering called pellicle to help ciliates keep their shape
Aquatic and heterotropic
Feed from oral groove
Produce spores
Non-motile, parasitic
Plasmodium is an example – causes malaria in humans
5. Outline the cause, transmission, and symptoms of each of the following:
a. Sleeping Sickness
i. caused by zooflagellate Trypoansomo gambiensis. Carrier is tsete fly. Humans get disease if
bitten by an infected host fly. Symptoms: fever, chills, skin rash; if this attacks the nervous
system, it can be fatal.
b. Amoebic Dysentery
i. caused by Entamoeba found in tropical regions. Person gets sick if they drink infected water.
Ameoba inters the digestive system and feed on the intestinal walls – passed out in feces and
this is how they can get into the water supply.
c. Malaria
i. a sporozoan protest that obtain nutrients from the bodies of their hosts called Plasmodium.
When a female mosquito infected with \plasmodium bites a human, Plasmodium is
transmitted into the human circulatory system. They infect blood cells and when these
infected RBCs burst, large amounts of toxins fill the bloodstream and these toxins cause the
malaria symptoms.
6. Fill in the following table.
Fungus-Like Protists – General Characteristics
Characteristics and Examples
 Single cells, many nuclei in each
Acellular Slime
Cellular Slime
Water Moulds
Most of life cycle as a wall-less mass (plasmodium) and moves by pseudopods
When food runs out, slime forms reproductive structures called fruiting bodies
which produce spores
Live in fresh water, damp soil or decaying matter
Move as amoeba-like cells
When food is scarce, they come together for form a large multicellular mass
Live in water, some on land
Example: whitish cottony mould growing on dead fish
Feed on remains of dead plants and animals
Some are parasitic and attack crops
7. Name the protist that was responsible for the emigration of millions of Irish people during the mid
Phytophthora infestans
8. Fill in the following table.
Plant-Like Protists – General Characteristics
Characteristics and Examples
 Unicellular flagellates
Green Algae
Can use photosynthesis
Organism Euglena feeds via photosynthesis and in the dark it feeds as a
heterotroph on dead organic material
Have a golden colouration due to pigments
Each species has a unique shape
Abundant in oceans and a key food source for other organisms
Single celled algae that have 2 flagella
Most photosynthetic, some are heterotrophic
Each species has a unique shape
Tend to be luminescent; when surrounding water is agitated, they give off light
Each cell has 2 flagella that move the cell around
Live in fresh water
ancient green algae thought to have given rise to first plants due to cellulose in
their cell walls
9. Draw your versions of the zooflagellate, paramecium, and amoeba below. Get some colour in
there! 
Station # 3: Kingdom Fungi
1. What does ‘saprobe’ mean?
Organisms that absorb their food from decaying (dead) matter – they are decomposers
2. Name the characteristic used to classify fungi into various phyla. How does this characteristic
differ between the phyla?.
The 100 000 species of fungi are grouped into divisions based on their pattern of sexual reproduction :
 Fungi with spores in a caselike structure = sporangium
 Fungi with spores in a saclike structure = ascus
 Fungi with spores that form club like structure = basidium
3. Draw a diagram of a typical mushroom. Label all relevant structures.
Caselike Fungi
Examples of
Bread mould
Spores in a caselike
Most are terrestrial
Type/Description Using bread mould as an
of Reproduction example:
Saclike Fungi
Asexual under
 Caselike structures
called sporangia
grow at tips of
bread mould and
each can produce
several thousands
of spores
 Sporangium break
open and air
currents carry
spores to germinate
Mildews, moulds,
some yeasts
Spores in a saclike
 Sac fungi make 2
types of spores –
spores made from
sexual reproduction
are called ascospores
and spores made
asexually are called
 Some yeasts cause
infections of skin,
lungs, kidneys; many
are parasitic and
cause disease in
YEAST as an example:
 Ideal conditions =
 Conditions lacking
oxygen =
fermentation, a type
of anaerobic
Clublike Fungi
Mushrooms, rusts,
smuts, puffballs
Spores in a clublike
Using Mushrooms as an
 Hypae form an
underground network
called a mycelium and
a reproductive
structure above
ground called a
fruiting body
 Different mushrooms
are classified based on
their umbrellalike caps
Using Mushrooms as an
 Cap of each mushroom
contains gills that
come out like spokes
on a wheel
 Each gill has thousands
of clublike
reproductive cells
called basidia
 Each basidia has
thousands of spores
that are blown by the
wind, and hopefully
will germinate in the
ground where they

4. Can all fungi be classified into those 3 divisions? Why or why not?
Some species have no known sexual phases and cannot be classified into these 3 divisions; these are
imperfect fungi.
5. Describe the discovery of Penicillium. What is it? Who was is discovered by? What is it used for?
1928 Sir Alexander Fleming observed Penicillium growing with some bacteria – Penicillium mould
prevented the growth of the bacterium
Fleming eventually isolated a chemical substance produced by the fungus - Penicillin
Was the first antibiotic to come into medical use to fight infectious diseases caused by bacteria
6. How does Penicillium work as an antibiotic?
Penicillium prevents the formation of cell walls in reproducing bacteria. No cell wall, and bacteria most likely
will not survive the reproduction process.
7. Describe athlete’s foot – what exactly is it? What are its signs and symptoms?
Caused by mould Trichophyton rubrum
Occurs between toes and on soles of feet
Fungus thrives in warm, damp places like floors of showers, pools and gyms
Symptoms: reddened, cracked and peeling skin with itching or burning and stinging sensations
