- IBI Handout 36: Euglena Observations
Below are several videos showing the paramecium. Use these to help you complete the handout.
This video shows how the paramecium's cilia affect the water around it. It's a long video and you don't need to watch all of it.
This video shows numerous body structures, including active contractile vacuoles. You can also see how the cilia completely cover the body of the organism. Watch this video: it's worth it!
This video shows the paramecium dividing. This is a process called binary fission.
Videos for Handout 36 (Euglena)
This first video shows how flexible the body of the Euglena is. You can also observe the flagella. How do you describe the movement of the Euglena? How many flagella does it have?
This second video is long but shows different parts of the Euglena. It also explains how they get their energy and discusses their eye spots.
