- - Their rhythmic, coordinated whipping motions provide mobility for the cell and directs food toward the cytostome.
Widespread heterotrophic unicellular organisms with constantly changing shapes
Unicellular eukaryotes living in freshwaters, capable of feeding autotrophically and heterotrophically.
Tardigrades can survive in extreme environments, they can even stay alive in outer space.
There are two basic cell types: prokaryotic and eukaryotic cells.
Eukaryotic cells contain a number of organelles.
Bacteria occur in a wide range of shapes, including spheres, rods and spirals.
Jellyfish are free-swimming marine animals, a species of Cnidaria, the most ancient group of Eumetazoans.
Eukaryotic cells with nuclei measuring only a few micrometers may contain nearly 2 meters (6.6 ft) of DNA, coiled multiple times.
Viruses consist of protein and DNA or RNA, they reprogram infected cells to produce more viruses.
