Paramecium bursaria

Index Paramecium bursaria

Paramecium bursaria is a species of ciliates that has a mutualistic endosymbiotic relationship with green algae called Zoochlorella. [1]

16 relations: Algae, Alveolate, Ciliate, Contractile vacuole, Cytoplasm, Endosymbiont, Eukaryote, Jakob Friedrich Ehrhart, Macronucleus, Micronucleus, Oligohymenophorea, Parameciidae, Paramecium, Peniculid, SAR supergroup, Zoochlorella.


Algae (singular alga) is an informal term for a large, diverse group of photosynthetic organisms that are not necessarily closely related, and is thus polyphyletic.

The alveolates (meaning "with cavities") are a group of protists, considered a major clade and superphylum within Eukarya, and are also called Alveolata.

The ciliates are a group of protozoans characterized by the presence of hair-like organelles called cilia, which are identical in structure to eukaryotic flagella, but are in general shorter and present in much larger numbers, with a different undulating pattern than flagella.

An endosymbiont or endobiont is any organism that lives within the body or cells of another organism in a symbiotic relationship with the host body or cell, often but not always to mutual benefit.

Jakob Friedrich Ehrhart

Jakob Friedrich Ehrhart (4 November 1742, Holderbank, Aargau – 26 June 1795) was a German botanist, a pupil of Carl Linnaeus at Uppsala University, and later director of the Botanical Garden of Hannover, where he produced several major botanical works between 1780–1793.

A macronucleus (formerly also meganucleus) is the larger type of nucleus in ciliates.

Micronucleus is the name given to the small nucleus that forms whenever a chromosome or a fragment of a chromosome is not incorporated into one of the daughter nuclei during cell division.
