They eat by trapping food inside of their oral grooves, which are basically mouths. They use cilia on their body to not only move, but also help capture their prey. When the food gets into the oral…

    There will be more solute outside of the cell than inside, the so the water will move outside of the cell. They will cause the plant cell to undergo plasmolysis, which can lead to plant death. A plant may prevent this from happening by taking in the salt and storing it in a vacuole where it cannot harm the cell. By taking in solute, the plant will also draw in water, because solute is going into the cell. The plant may also have ways to store water and will try to minimize contact with the sun…

Otherwise, two other kingdoms, bacteria and protists are categorised mostly as single-celled organism (but some are multi-celled species). Recently, there is a new tree family revealed by recent research and made up two main divisions that are the Prokaryotae and the Eukaryotae (Woese et al 1990; Waggoner & Speer 1998) The Prokaryotae consist of two domains, the Archaea and the Bacteria, and have one…
