All living things move, even plants. The undulatory waves of the flagellates you observe in this investigation enable them to move somewhat as a snake does.

The flagellate depicted here is Peranema trichophorum. 3 Objective To understand how a variety of different flagellates move. Procedure 1. Fill each of the 2 l glass jars about 3/4 full with pond or stagnant water.

Movement through soil substrates would require some form of adhesion, so locomotor organelles would reflect this. The organisms most likely to be adapted to spaces with microscopic dimensions would include hypotrich ciliates, euglenids, and both shelled and naked amoebae. J. Patterson is Head of the School of Biological Sciences at the University of Sydney in Australia. He carries out research on the evolution and taxonomy of protozoa, and is currently researching areas involving biogeography. Resources Patterson, D.

Adaptations and Variations If you do not have a viscous slowing agent, the ciliate can be slowed down by placing a very thin wisp of cotton fibers on the slide before adding the drop of ciliate culture. Cotton is also useful in slowing down larger ciliates because they become trapped in the small spaces among the cotton fibers. 01 g per 100 ml water), students can stain the ciliates and observe internal structures such as the nucleus and some of the small vesicles and other organelles. ◆ In addition to ciliary motion, students should observe other forms of motion, such as twisting of the body, contraction, and bending that occurs in some species.
