Why is the abundance of protists important?

Protists fix nitrogen on the ocean floor.

  

The protists that dominate marine plankton have short life spans.

  

The sugars protists produce are the basis of food chains in both freshwater and marine environments.

  

The carbon-containing shells that surround some unicellular algae dissolve in ocean water after these organisms die.
