  1. phylum protozoa

    Phylum Protozoa is a term that is no longer technically used in modern taxonomy, as protozoa are now distributed among various supergroups in the domain Eukarya. However, it was once a classification for a diverse group of single-celled, non-photosynthetic, eukaryotic organisms. These organisms, commonly referred to as protozoa, have various modes of movement and nutrition, and can be free-living or parasitic. They are typically microscopic and can be found in a wide range of habitats, including soil, water, and as part of normal or pathological flora in other organisms. Varieties of protozoa include amoebae, flagellates, ciliates, and sporozoans.
