In What Sense Are Protists Primitive?


Protists are called primitive life forms because they are known as simple lifeforms compared to many other forms of life on earth, and also as older than many lifeforms on earth in terms of the evolutionary tree. However, the term 'primitive' may be misleading, because they are eukaryotes, which have complex structures. Protists are microorganisms, which means that they are so small that they are microscopic to humans.
