About This Chapter
TExES Life Science: Protists, Fungi & Viruses - Chapter Summary
Differentiate between the evolutionary processes of various living organisms in these video lessons as you get reacquainted with fungi, protists, and viruses. Learn strategies for answering questions related to these topics on the TExES Life Science test. After you get through the lessons in this chapter, you should have a more thorough understanding of these key subjects:
- Prokaryotic evolution
- The evolutionary history of fungi and plants
- Classification of viruses
- The purpose of protists
- The effects of viruses and bacteria
If you need to re-learn this information quickly, then our format will serve you well. We keep each of our video lessons under the 10-minute mark, allowing you to squeeze these lessons in between your other daily obligations. Furthermore, if you have Wi-Fi, you can take our lessons with you. As it gets closer to your TExES Life Science test date, you may want to gauge how well studying our materials has prepared you. To evaluate your progress, you can answer the questions on the lesson quizzes and the chapter exam.
1. The Evolution of Prokaryotes: Archaebacteria and Eubacteria
Learn about the evolution of Prokaryotes and their two domains: archaea and bacteria. The topics covered include the definition and characteristics of prokaryotes, and the difference between archaebacteria and eubacteria.
2. The Evolution of Protists: Importance & Evolutionary History
Learn about the evolution of protists and their importance. Look at how protists are defined, different types of protists, and why these unique organisms are important.
3. The Evolution of Plants and Fungi: Characteristics & Evolutionary History
The evolution of plants and fungi have both similarities and differences. Discover the evolutionary history and characteristics of plants and fungi in this lesson.
4. Viruses: Definition, Classification & Life Cycle
From the common cold to HIV, viruses can be an annoyance, and even have the potential to kill you. This lesson will define what a virus is, describe how scientists classify them and will give an overview of the virus life cycle.
5. Bacteria & Viruses: Beneficial Uses & Deleterious Effects
Bacteria and viruses can have deleterious effects on the body, but they also have many beneficial uses. Learn the definitions of bacteria and viruses, the damages they cause, and the beneficial uses for the development of medicine and vaccines.
