Ancient Species -

Eukaryotes are creatures composed of cells with a nucleus. The name means "true kernel" where the "kernel" refers to the nucleus in the cell.

They include animals, plants and fungi. Any eukaryotes which are not animals, plants or fungi are classified as "protists". This group includes various unrelated types of algae.

The oldest known eukaryote fossil is an algal protist some 1,800 years old.
