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 (such as under our clothing) and sit for long enough for bacteria to grow. This is why it's very important to keep clean.

How are bacteria and viruses the same?

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 nutrients or moisture are depleted, bacteria from the genus of Bacillus and Clostridium produce an endospore inside each vegatative cell. Once the vegatative cell (active bacteria) no longer has enough nutrients or moisture to survive, it releases the endospore. The endospore can remain viable for very long periods. When the right conditions return for growth, the endospore creates another vegatative cell, and the bacteria becomes active again. Some fungi produce spores in a similar fashion. I am a Registered Medical Technologist, and have spent several years as a clinical microbiologist.

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.
