When I switch between races, I seem to forget what I need to build to protect myself from cloaked enemies. (Yeah, I'm a pretty inexperienced player.) What reveals in each race?

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

Though the target here is a newer question, the data in its answer is more comprehensive by covering campaign-specific units and special abilities. Thus, we're closing it in that direction. – Grace Note Jan 26 '11 at 21:24

Thank you! That should elevate me from a really crappy player to a mediocre player! :) – Artemis Jul 8 '10 at 14:27
Of especial note for Zerg is that an Overseer is an upgraded version of an Overlord. Unlike StarCraft 1, the Zerg do not necessarily gain observers galore. Don't forget! – Mag Roader Jul 8 '10 at 14:35
The Terran also have two additional methods: the Orbital Command's Scanner Sweep to detect cloaked units, and the Ghost's EMP which temporarily disabled cloaking of cloaked units (even permanently clocked ones, such as Dark Templars). – Oak Jul 8 '10 at 14:36
