Fungus-like protists typically reproduce asexually through the release of spores. These types of protists, such as slime mold, are unicellular organisms that may form large masses of cells under the right conditions. More » Science Biology Botany

Fungus-like protists have characteristics of both unicellular and multicellular life forms. They are often found on decaying organic matter, and reproduce by creating spores. They include slime molds and water molds. Sli... More » Science Biology Botany

A fungus-like protist obtains food by crawling over it and enveloping it, taking food particles into itself in a manner similar to how amoebas eat. These protists often consume decaying plant matter on damp forest floors... More » Science Biology

Plant-like protists include different groups of organisms, such as different types of algae, diatoms, dinoflagellates and euglenoids. Protists can be either uni-cellular or multicellular. For example, in the algae group,... More » Science Biology Botany

Broyophytes use spores rather than seeds to reproduce, and they do not have a vascular system. There are more than 25,000 species of bryophytes in the world, so beyond these basics, there is not one universal structure f... More » Science Biology Botany

Seedless vascular plants are relatively small plants that depend on flagellated sperm in water for the fertilization of their female gametes in their gametophyte stage, which are then reproduced via wind-blown spores. Th... More » Science Biology Botany

A fungus is a eukaryotic organism that cannot produce its own food via photosynthesis, has cell walls that contain chitin and reproduces via the use of spores, according to the University of Hawaii. Common examples of fu... More » Science Biology Botany
