These organisms are found in soil, water, even sometimes in the human body, but they are also found in some very extreme environments on Earth – very cold, very hot, very salty, very pressurized, very acidic, earning them the commonly used name “the extremophiles,” or extreme-loving organisms.

(2–0.2 mm) Micro or small 1 introduction to microbiology 1. A typical virus (let us say influenza virus) has a diameter of about 100 nanometers (nm). Soil Microbiology deals with study of soil microorganisms and their functions involved in the changing properties of soil such as fertility and nutrient availability such as humus formation, N-fixation, soil stability and decomposition. But who are the microbes? In the acellular camp we have the viruses and other infectious agents, such as prions and viroids. If we break the word down it translates to “the study of small life,” where the small life refers to microorganisms or microbes. v – Cannot get at easily decomposition Everyone is involved • Protists and nematodes, The fungi (singular, fungus) include several thousand species of eukaryotic, sporebearing organisms that obtain simple organic compounds by absorption.The organisms have no chlorophyll and reproduce by both sexual and asexual means. What is the basis for Woese’s classification and what are the three domains? effects on earthworms interactions have variable effects on In this textbook the focus will be on the bacteria and archaea (traditionally known as the “prokaryotes,”) and the viruses and other acellular agents.

For example, the bacterium previously known as Streptococcus faecalis is now Enterococcus faecalis because sequencing information indicates that it is more closely related to the members of the Enterococcus genus. Obviously microbes are small. There are 1000 µm in every millimeter, so that shows why it is difficult to see most microbes without assistance.
