Protists are a diverse group of eukaryotic microorganisms. They have a nucleus, large ribosomes, mitochondria, endoplasmic reticulum, and golgi bodies. Many species have chloroplasts. Some protists divide by way of mitosis, meiosis, or both. The majority of protistians are single-celled, but nearly every lineage also has multicelled forms. Protists are important for the use of food. Saprobes resemble some bacteria and fungi, and some predators and parasites resembles animals.

Some examples of plant-like protists are: Euglenoids, Dinoflagellates, Chrysophytes, Green Algae, Red Algae, and Brown Algae.

Two examples of the fungus-like protists are water molds and slime molds.
