This appears to be a reprint of a book originally published almost years ago. It certainly has value as a reprint of a classic treatise, but it has little value as a modern guide to identification of protozoa. The original title page appears to have been replaced with a new 1/5(2).   This book introduces you to creatures from the protist kingdom, from microscopic protozoans to seaweedlike algae. It examines the parts, life cycle, and reproduction of various types of protists. It also looks at the harmful effects some protists have on humans.5/5(2).   This is a real gem of a book. For anyone wanting a clear easily read reference to the Protozoa I can think of no better example. Don't be put off by the fact that all illustrations are hand drawn rather than photographs, at least in the copy I obtained, as if /5(6). Presented with a red border are the Protozoa books that have been lovingly read and reviewed by the experts at Lovereading. With expert reading recommendations made by people with a passion for books and some unique features Lovereading will help you find great Protozoa books and those from many more genres to read that will keep you inspired and entertained.

About the book Description Updated and much expanded, the Second Edition of Parasitic Protozoa is designed to be useful to physicians, veterinarians, and research scientists concerned with diseases caused by protozoa in man, and in domestic and wild animals including fish, mollusks and insects, as well as the more commonly considered vertebrate animals. AN ILLUSTRATED GUIDE TO CILIATED PROTOZOA USED AS BIOLOGICAL INDICATORS IN FRESHWATER ECOLOGY. by BICK J and a great selection of related books, art and collectibles available now at 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. Protozoa are notable for their ability to move independently, a characteristic found in the majority of species. They usually lack the capability for photosynthesis, although the genus Euglena is renowned for motility as well as photosynthesis (and is therefore considered both an alga and a protozoan).Although most protozoa reproduce by asexual methods, sexual reproduction has been observed in.

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. The fossil record in the form of shells in sedimentary rocks shows that protozoa were present in the Pre Cited by: 8.
