Learn more about the anatomy of amoeba using these amoeba diagrams available in clear figures! A total of five diagrams are provided to show you the structure of amoeba. The following anatomy diagrams are available to help you understand more about the anatomy of amoeba. We’ll start by giving you the first labeled diagram below.
You can see in the amoeba diagram above that amoeba proteus is a unicellular organism widely distributed in ponds, lakes, freshwater pools and slow streams. Amoeba has no permanent shape but changes all the time especially when moving or feeding. Like all cells, it has cytoplasm, nucleus, cell membrane and a variety of inclusions in the cytoplasm. It is about 0.3 mm across and inhabits the mud at the bottom of fresh water ponds. Although it is just a single cell, it exhibits all the essential functions of any living organism. The following phagocytosis diagram will show you more about the structure diagram of amoeba.
The single cell of amoeba consists of a nucleus and cytoplasm. The outer layer of cytoplasm, ectoplasm, is a clear gel while the bulk of the amoeba consists of endoplasm, which is more fluid than ectoplasm and contains granules and other minute structures. The nucleus appears as a biconcave disc in young specimens but it is often folded and convoluted in older specimens. Pseudopodia are temporary finger like projections with blunt rounded tips which are constantly being given out or withdrawn by the body.
All these images here are free and downloadable in printable quality. Also provided is the unlabeled version of the diagram for any evaluation usage. Find other anatomy structure diagrams in the other posts in this site!
