An organism that harbors a sexually immature stage of a parasite
precess by which a nuclei fuse to produce a diploid cell
A flagellate protozoan such as Giardia
A vector in which the parasite does not complete any part of its life cycle
a malaria trophozoite found in infected red blood or liver cells
The postcerarial encysted stage in the development of a fluke, proir to transfer to the final host.
An immature microscopic roundrworm larva
ciliated, free-swimming first-stage fluke larva that emerges from an egg
In fungi, a mass of long, threadlike structures (hyphae) that branch and intertwine
the study of fungi
A disease caused by a fungus
A parasite that must spend some or all of its life cycle in or on a host.
an organism that lives in or on, and at the expense of, another organism, the host
The study of parasites
any organism capable of causing disease in its host.
an outercovering membrane
A parasite that remains in or on a host once it has invaded the host.
plasmodial slime mold
fungilike protist consisting of a multinucleate amoeboid mass, or plasmodium, that moves about slowly and phagocytizes dead matter.
Sexual reproduction in fungi in which haploid gametes unite and their cytoplasm mingles.
one of the segments of a tapeworm, containing the reproductive organs.
a unicellular eukaryotic organism that is a member of the kingdom Protista
Single-celled, microscopic, animal-like protists in the kingdom Protista
A primitive body cavity, typical of nematodes, that lacks the complete lining found in higher animals
a multicellular mass composed of individual cellular slime mold cells that have aggregated.
the development stage of the fluke immediately following the sporocyst stage
an infected organism that makes parasites available for transmission to other hosts.
A worm with a long, cylindrical, unsegmented body and a heavy cuticle
A member of a diverse group of fungi htat produces saclike asci during sexual reproduction
An organism that feeds on dead or decaying organic matter.
head end of a tapeworm, with suckers and sometimes hooks that attach to the intestinal wall
A cross-wall separating two fungal cells
A funguslike protist
laval form of a fluke that develops in the body of its snail or mollusk host
a malaria trophozoite present in the salivary glands of infected mosquitoes.
flatworm that lives in the adult stage as a parasite in the small intestine of animals
sexual part of the life cycle of a fungus
A parasite that feeds on and then leaves its host (such as a biting insect)
a shell made of calcium carbonate and common to some protists
the body of a fungus
tentaclelike structure on ciliates for catching prey (for attachment)
vegetative form of a protozoan such as Plasmodium
an organism that transmits a disease-casuing organism from one host to another
a funguslike protist that produces flagellated asexual spores (zoospores) and large, motile gametes
in bread mold, a thick-walled, resistant, spore-producing structure enclosing a zygote
a parasite that lives within the body of another organism
A multinucleate mass of cytoplasm that forms one of hte stages in the life cycle of the plasmodial slime mold.
multiple fission, in which one cell gives rise to many cells
