The lithosphere is a very complex compartment of the environment containing the key
ingredients for plant growth and survival. The soil is the most vital component in the
environment and influences the overall productivity within ecosystems.
The classification of organisms has been an ongoing effort for decades by taxonomist and
microbiologist, and was once thought to have been solved almost completely different from
todays known classifications based on kingdoms.
The usage of the compound microscope is common in the field of microbiology. Microscopes
are used to precisely observe objects in laboratories with special features that are beyond the
human eye abilities. The compound microscope is equipped

Soil moisture content determines the characteristics and structure of soil and alters the
functioning of microorganisms. In soil, there is an abundance of organic matter, decomposers,
