. Explain why the traditional classification of unicellular eukaryotes as ‘protozoa’ or ‘protists’ is invalid in terms of modern systematics and evolutionary theory. Why are traditional morphological and physiological characteristics such as organelles, movement, and nutrition not always reliable as synapomorphic character states? What modern techniques are being used to reassess unicellular eukaryote phylogeny?
