    • 7.1: Introduction
      Just as there is a great deal of diversity in the metabolic properties of bacteria, there is also a great deal of diversity in the types of environments in which different species of bacteria can survive. Microbes are affected in different ways by their physical environment. In today’s lab you will perform experiments that will determine the effects of some of these physical factors on microbial growth.
