Microbial populations are blended and lineages anastamose repeatedly. Sex pilus Many prokaryotes form metabolically inactive endospores , which can remain viable in harsh conditions for centuries Anthrax, Clostridium BILD 3 July 7, 2010 Woodruff: life's first 4 billion years 3 DOMAIN BACTERIA PROTEOBACTERIA: 5 diverse groups (alpha epsilon) CHLAMYDIAS SPIROCHETES CYANOBACTERIA GRAM-POSITIVE BACTERIA Fig. 27-18a Alpha Beta Gamma Delta Epsilon Proteobacteria Subgroup: Beta Proteobacteria Nitrosomonas (colorized TEM) 1 m Subgroup: Delta Proteobacteria 10 m Fruiting bodies of Chondromyces crocatus , a myxobacterium (SEM) Bdel ovibrio bacteriophorus at acking a larger bacterium (colorized TEM) 5 m Helicobacter pylori (colorized TEM) Causes stomach ulcers 2 m 0.5 m Subgroup: Epsilon Proteobacteria B. bacteriophorus Thiomargarita namibiensis...
