  • Psssssst!Hey kid! Yeah, you!Come over here!
  • You want to know the differences and similarities of fungi and protista?
  • ...bre. I didn't walk all the way over here so that you could teach me science.
  • Fungi and protista are both extremely important to the entire world, recycling waste back into the food chain and such things. They can be found all over the place: in soil and water and on trees and decaying matrial, they're everywhere!
  • Well you see, fungi and protista have a few similarities. They both consist of eukaryotic, single-cell or multicellular organisms that are capable of sexual or asexual reproduction. Many protists have cell walls, are heterotrophs, and are non-motile, like fungi.
  • There are some differences between them as well. Protists don't have any set attributes really, as different protists relate to different kingdoms. Fungi-like protists aren't fungi because they have cellulose within their cell walls, instead of chitin. Protists also don't have hyphae, which are thread like structures that bunch up into mycelium. That's what you see when you look at moldy bread btw. Fungi doesn't have flagella or cilia, which allows for movement.
  • You're wasting my time. This information is useless to me.
  • Then leave. I have nothing more to offer to you than this knowledge.
  • Goodbye! See you in class Monday!
