Ask Mark Tebbet.
The role of bacteria is to be decomposers.
The integument acts as a barrier that separates the internal composition of the body from the external environment. It is also vital in preventing dessication. D is the a…nswer. Temperature regulation and sensation, reference, Because it interfaces with the environment, skin plays a very important role in protecting (the body) against pathogens. Its other functions are insulation, temperature regulation, sensation, synthesis of vitamin D, and the protection of vitamin B folates. Severely damaged skin will try to heal by forming scar tissue. This is often discolored and depigmented.
Bacteria and other microbes play the important role in environment of DECOMPOSERS, which act in the last stage of food chain. These microorganisms like bacteria cause the brea…kdown of energy rich organic compounds. These compounds come from decaying matter of plants such as leaves, or from animals waste products and dead bodies. The microbial mediated degradation process is also called bioremedation.
They eat filth, carcasses, and such, and when they die, they provide nutrients for plants and algae.
breaks down the glucose
It is where the sweat comes out that regulates body temperature.
bacteria that reduce nitrates or nitrogen gas; most are found in soil
Without them we wouldn't be able to survive. They help us digest food, produce vitamins, and occupies niches that otherwise would be available for competing pathogens.
Bacteria are involved in oxygen and food production, environment recycling and cleanup, and in health maintenance and medicine production
They are there to break down waste and dead bodies.
Bacteria break decaying matter down.
The skin primarily is responsible for the production of Vitamin D. When it is exposed to the sunlight for more than about a half hour, it will begin converting cholesterol int…o Vitamin D. It will continue to do so until the sunlight is blocked or considerably weakened.
