Plasmodium (life cycle)

A plasmodium is a living structure of cytoplasm that contains many nuclei, rather than being divided into individual cells each with a single nucleus. Plasmodia are best known from slime molds, but are found in parasitic Myxosporea, some algae such as the Chlorarachniophyta. A plasmodium is an amoeboid and naked mass of cytoplasm that contains many diploid nuclei; the resulting structure, a coenocyte, is created by many nuclear divisions without the process of cytokinesis, which in other organisms pulls newly-divided cells apart. In some cases, the resulting structure is a syncytium, created by the fusion of cells after division. Under suitable conditions, plasmodia differentiates and forms fruiting bodies bearing spores at their tips; the term plasmodium, introduced by Leon Cienkowski refers to the feeding stage of slime molds. The multinucleate developmental stages of some intracellular parasites, namely Microsporidia and Myxosporidia, former cnidosporans, are sometimes called plasmodia. In Rhizaria, the amoeboid, multinucleate protoplasts of some Cercozoan algae, e.g. Chlorarachniophyta, are called plasmodia.

These lack cell walls. Some plasmodiophorids and haplosporidians are other multinucleated rhizarians

The Nuxalk people referred to as the Bella Coola, Bellacoola or Bilchula, are an Indigenous First Nation in Canada, living in the area in and around Bella Coola, British Columbia. Their language is called Nuxalk, their tribal government is the Nuxalk Nation. The name "Bella Coola" used in academic writing, is not preferred by the Nuxalk; the Nuxalk peoples, known today collectively as Nuxalkmc, are made up of lineages representing several ancestral villages within their territory. From Kimsquit, known as Sutslhm in the Nuxalk language, come the Sutslhmc. From the Dean River come the Nutl'lmc, as well as lineages from the upper Dean River. From South Bentinck Arm come the Talyumc of Tallheo, from the villages at the Nuwikw and Asiiqw rivers. From Kwalhna/Kwatna, Kwatna Inlet, come the Kwalhnmc, from several villages. From King Island come the Istamc, from the Bella Coola River come the Nuxalk-mc, from some twenty five Nuxalk villages extending all the way up to Stuwic and beyond up both the Atnarko and Talchako rivers.

These were all gathered in their current location in the Bella Coola Valley by a combination of negotiation with Chief Pootlass and through government pressure, settling together based on cultural and linguistic similarities, reinforced by a large number of marriages arranged to ease the transition. As all these communities now resided on the Nuxalk river, they took the collective name of Nuxalkmc, their language has come to be knows as ItNuxalkmc. Not everyone settled within the current communities in that valley, as such the Nuxalk share many family ties with their neighbours and beyond, most extensively with the Heiltsuk. Before contact, the Nuxalk population is estimated to have been 35,000, according to oral histories and academic research, although Mooney in 1928 estimated that there were 1,400 Nuxalk in 1780. In 1862 the great smallpox epidemic of that year reduced the Nuxalk to only 300 survivors by 1864. In 1902, according to Mooney, there were 302. Nuxalk people were scattered throughout the territory and either relocated on their own to survive, or were forcibly removed by the Department of Indian Affairs, to form a settlement in what is now known as the Bella Coola Valley.

Knowledge of family ancestry remains strong among the Nuxalk, including villages of descent, family crests, as well as songs and dances that recount the history and myth in smayustas. Nuxalk religion includes a belief in a father God, his son, a spirit deity. There is a goddess in Nuxalk spiritual beliefs, Qamayts. Many Nuxalk embraced the Christian religion because of strong similarities between this Trinity of Father and Holy Spirit shared by the Nuxalk religion and Christianity. Nuxalk society embraces traditional beliefs; the Nuxalk as a people and via their government maintain rights and title to their entire traditional territory and continue to strive to maintain their traditional systems of governance, basing it in their long and rich cultural history and continued use and occupation. The Nuxalk Nation has long asserted its rights and obligations and has never ceded, surrendered, nor lost traditional lands through act of war or by treaty; the Nuxalk remain against entering any treaty process.

Current Indian and Northern Affairs Canada population estimates indicate a total Nuxalk population of 1400 with nearly 900 of those living on the Nuxalk reserve in Bella Coola. However, according to the traditional Nuxalk government, the true Nuxalk population is closer to 3,000; this number includes people of Nuxalk ancestry who are not registered with the Nuxalk Nation or may be registered to another band government.
