Why are bacteria MOST SUCCESSFUL?

We should already know that BACTERIA are the smallest ________ things. We should already know that BACTERIA are the SMALLEST LIVING things. In addition, theyve been around for BILLIONS of

YEARS!!!! Why are bacteria the MOST SUCCESSFUL LIFE? 1. They can survive almost anything!

How TOUGH are you? Could you survive in the antarctic? How about NEGATIVE 89.2 degrees Celsius BELOW ZERO?

urpthats cold. Ancient bacteria living in frozen glaciers! The coldest temperature recorded on Earth was recorded at Vostok Station in Russia. With the help of radar, in 1996, a vast sub-glacial lake

was discovered nearby. The ice core samples have proven valuable, and have resulted in the discovery of BACTERIA THAT ARE 400,000 years OLD. Could you survive undersea WITHOUT

a major underwater submersible? How about under tremendous pressure at the bottom of an abyss in total darkness surrounded by toxic gas? How about under tremendous pressure at the bottom of an abyss in total darkness surrounded by

toxic gas? e m So ria e t c

ba !!!! n a c Cyanobacteria live in all types of water conditions--polluted & otherwise. They are the smallest

phytoplankton. Chemosynthetic bacteria live under great cold & pressure in toxic gas! Recently discovered in 1977, hydrothermal vents, also known as "black smokers", revolutionized our understanding of life. Until the

discovery of these vent systems, all known ecosystems on Earth had photosynthetic organisms at the base of their food chain. However, this particular type of ecosystem is dependent on chemosynthetic bacteria that generate energy from hydrogen

sulfide, the chemical responsible for the smell of rotten eggs. These chemotrophic (chemical eating) bacteria exist in symbiotic relationships with other members of the ecosystem Could you live in a cave?

How about a cave in total darkness with acid dripping on your head? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9 w-LNQ4sBuE snottites Snottite bacteria live in

total darkness in acid caves They are found hanging from the walls and ceilings of toxic sulphur caves (most notably Cueva de Villa Luz in Tabasco, Mexico). Show exerpt from ORIGINS that show snottites

How about living in a BOILING HOT CHEMICAL SOUP?? These yellow bacteria live in boiling hot chemical soups! This vast bacterial mat is found in regions

around hot springs such as the Grand Prismatic Springs. There are more bacteria alive in one inch of this bacterial mat than there are humans in existence. Why are bacteria the MOST SUCCESSFUL LIFE? 1. They reproduce VERY quickly.

hey can survive almost anything! http://www.biology4kids.com/files/mic ro_prokaryote.html Remember that there are millions of species of bacteria!

Fossils Stromatolites are structures created by photosynthetic bacteria (prokaryotes). These rounded, bulbous shapes are usually less than 1 meter across and contain fine layering.

Photosynthetic bacteria live on thin mats in shallow water. As they become covered in clay and particles, these bacteria move upwards toward the light they require. This movement leaves behind dead layers, much in the same way that trees leave behind inner wood as they grow.

Stromatolites are recognizable because of the tree ring structure that records the movement of bacteria. The earliest known fossils of stromatolites are dated at 3.45 Ga, and come from Western Australia. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=
