Concluding Remarks

  • Tom Fenchel
Part of the Brock/Springer Series in Contemporary Bioscience book series (BROCK/SPRINGER)


In this book, I have tried to evaluate the natural history of protozoa in light of a unifying theme: the physical constraints of being small and unicellular in relation to the physical and biological environment. Although protozoa comprise a systematically diverse assemblage of organisms, they share a number of functional traits which make them more than just a group of “small animals.”
