Half of a large colony, the flagellates embedded in a common jelly.
- Flagellates, in the great majority of instances haemal parasites, derived from a biflagellate, Bodo-like type, in which the posteriorly-directed (trailing) flagellum is always present and attached to the body by an undulating membrane, of which it constitutes the thickened edge.
The affinities of the Dinoflagellata are certainly with those Cryptomonadine Flagellates which possess two unequal flagella; the zoospores or young of the Cystoflagellates are practically colourless Dinoflagellates.
Slightly larger flagellates and small ciliates prompt the spines to bend and curl so as to entangle the prey more thoroughly.
The earlier southern experiments showed a preference for pennate diatoms over flagellates.
In the South, diatoms are favored over flagellates, and in the north, centric diatoms over pennate.
Some flagellates combine the methods of plant and animal feeding, however most planktonic dinoflagellates are in fact plants.
Bacteria and tiny flagellates are pulled down toward the vacuoles by this flow.
The major protists that swim rapidly enough to be a problem are a number of ciliates and certain flagellates.
pennate diatoms over flagellates.
Another important advantage is that the differentiation of amoebae into flagellates is relatively synchronous.
