How do many bacteria living in the moist conditions move about?
If there are many bacteria that are living in tight moist conditions they do not move about very well. They will likely start to choke each other out. ...

What are the conditions bacteria require for growth?
There are many conditions that are required for bacteria to grow including plenty of sunlight. Bacteria also need water in order to grow. ...

How many centimeters does a horse's hoof grow every month?
Hoof horn growth is approximately 1cm per month. This all depends on the conditions in which the horse is living. Warm, moist weather my cause the hoof to grow faster; cold, dry conditions slow the growth down. ...

Why are the populations of many lake bacteria higher in the summer?
When there are warmer temperatures, which is usually in the summer, it provides ideal growing conditions for the bacteria. ...

Asked in Health
What conditions promote bacterial growth?
Most bacteria will grow in dark, moist, warm areas with a neutral PH balance (ph7, water, sweat, most foods) and a source of food for the bacteria, such as sugars, and protein. All bacteria need to grow in conditions such as this is time. (And not very long, either. 4 hours on average) Sadly, the Human body is one of the most optimal places for bacterial growth. We have many nooks and crannies where sweat can gather in a dark place...

How are bacteria and viruses the same?
Some ways a bacteria and virus are the same are, -some cause disease -they both reproduce -they both are in the human body and on everything we touch but, they have many differents. For instants, -a bacteria is living -bacteria need energy they are many more. ...
What is a difference between bacteria and viruses that shows that bacteria are living organims and viruses are not?
Bacteria metabolize ingested nutrients. Viruses do not do this. Bacteria reproduce by fusion. A virus needs a host to reproduce. Bacteria exchange gases with the environment. A virus does do this. A bacteria is motile in many cases. Flagella. Viruses must depend on the current in solution. As you see viruses do not have any of the markers of living organisms, but some biologists do not fully agree that viruses are not a sort of living organism. ...

What is the meaning of 'vegetative bacteria'?
Vegatative bacteria are those bacteria or microogranisms that can grow and reproduce in rich, moist soil where many nutrients are available. The actively growing bacteria in these conditions are referred to as "vegatative cells". Many types of bacteria and fungi can flourish under these conditions. Some examples of bacteria and fungi that can actively reproduce in this kind of soil are Bacillus, Streptomyces, Pseudomonas, Micrococcus, Mycobacterium and Clostridium. Mycobacterium tuberculosis can cause the disease tuberculosis, and Colstridium botulinum can cause botulism poisoning. When soil...
Asked in Black Death (Plagues)
What was the living conditions during the black death?
The living conditions during the black death were very hard for people who were poor. People who were rich would leave the cities to get away from the black death. Keep in mind that one in three people died during these pandemics. No one had any idea about bacteria or viruses. People thought that bad air caused the diseases. Overall living conditions improved because labor shortages meant that the poor that survived received higher wages and had many more opportunities. ...
Do bacteria become extinct?
Bacteria can become extinct. Just like any living organism, a bacterial species can become extinct. However it is less likely that bacteria will be extinct or that we will recognize a species as being extinct. First of all, bacteria are highly adaptable, some have spores, which is sort of like hibernation. Also, bacteria can live in some very poor conditions if need be. Also, there are so many bacteria on this planet, and they are relatively hard to see and enumerate, so...
