Chapter 9: MS Protists and Fungi

Created by: CK-12

What does the above image look like to you? A bacteria? An animal? A plant? Actually, it is not found in any of those categories. The above organism is called a "protist."

Protists are a unique category of organisms because they are very different when compared to each other, but they can be very similar to plants, animals, and fungi.

What are fungi? They are another kingdom of organisms that are not related to protists, but are equally interesting. There are estimated to be 1.5 million species of fungi, although only 5% of them are classified.
