Protozoology

Protozoology is the study of protozoa, the "animal-like" (i.e., motile and heterotrophic) protists.

This term has become dated as understanding of the evolutionary relationships of the eukaryotes has improved. For example, the Society of Protozoloogists, founded in 1947, was renamed International Society of Protistologists in 2005.[1] However, the term persists in some cases (e.g., the Polish journal Acta Protozoologica).
