Algae are classified as any eukaryotic cells that produce oxygen through photosynthesis and contains chloroplast in the cell.
There are 3 classification of protozoa:
- Sarcomastigophora are protozoa with flagella like Trichmonas spp or amoebas.
- Apicomplexa are spore forming protozoa. Also known as sporozoas. An example is Toxoplasma spp.
- Ciliophora are protozoa with cilia. A example would be Balantidium coli.
There are 2 group of fungus, Mold and Yeast. Both groups are non-photosynthetic eukaryotes, but mould forms mycelium, a network of hyphae which have perforated cross-walls between branches resulting in mould being multicellular and multinucleated. An example of mold is Tinea pedis. Yeast, however, is a single cell organism that does not form mycelium, an example would be Candida spp.
Lastly, Slime mould are eukaryotes classified based on a stage in their life cycle whereby they produced plasmodium, an ameboid multinucleated mass of cytoplasm.
