An amoeba or ameba (/ ə ˈ m iː b ə /; rarely spelt amœba; plural am(o)ebas or am(o)ebae / ə ˈ m iː b i /), often called an amoeboid, is a type of cell or unicellular organism which has the ability to alter its shape, primarily by extending and retracting pseudopods.

Amoebae do not form a single taxonomic group; instead, they are found in every major lineage of eukaryotic organisms.Written in an easy, flowing, elegant style, the book is spiced up with delightful anecdotes, and I very much enjoyed reading it."—Pauline Schaap, University of DundeeThe Social Amoebae is an enlightening and enjoyable read for the layperson and professional who would like to share in the biological insight and knowledge gained by John Tyler.
