Protozoa: Another name for Protozoan Conditions.
Protozoa (condition): Diseases caused by minute protozoa
Protozoa: Protozoa are a group of microscopic one-celled animals.
Protozoa can be parasites or predators. In humans,
protozoa usually cause disease. Some protozoa, like plankton, live in
water environments and serve as food for marine animals, such as some
species of whales. Protozoa also can be found on land in decaying matter
and in soil, but they must have a moist environment to survive. Termites
wouldn't be able to do such a good job of digesting wood without these
microorganisms in their guts.
