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. Materials and Methods
