I think irrespective of the kind of help, anyone who appeals for help in
this newsgroup requires help. I have also been in such tough situations
several times, when the books available to me (from library and mine) were
not sufficient to answer several of my questions (even though no teacher of
mine gave me the exam questions before the examination.... cushy stuff
there). Anyway, jagasits.. I will give you some pointers there. Try reading
some basic microbiology books which will give you a more general idea about
the stuff you asked. I would recommend Pelczar and Kreig. That is a very
common book that should be available in any library. Basically amoeba
belongs to the kingdom of Protista or protozoa. So your question sounds
kind of funny. Algae also sort of comes under this kingdom. But it is
difficult to draw a line between protozoa and metazoa (multicellular
organisms). But essentially the differences you have asked is between a
family of organisms (protozoa) and individual classes of organisms like
amoeba and BGA. it would have been better if the differnces were between
amoeba and BGA (blue green algae). Anyway, best of luck.
