Travis McMaine BIO 153-011 Microbial Growth Experiments in Different Environments Introduction The environments tested in this experiment were a decaying chicken, soil, air, hands, pond water, and a toilet seat. For each these microbes were able to be cultured. I predict that the two types of microbes discovered are going to be bacteria and fungus. This are the most common of the microbes (more so than say eukaryotes) so they are the most likely to occur. Also, I predict that fungus will appear on the plates from air, soil, and pond water. These environments are the most suited for sustaining fungus since many common types require warm, moist environments. Lastly, I predict that the chicken will have the most types of microbes present since it provides the best environment for microbial growth. This is true because it is warm, moist, and full of proteins and other resources. Not to mention the fact that something decays means that it is being broken down by microbes.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
