Sometimes we can’t see them, but they are on, in, and around us. Microbes have us outnumbered, but scientists are only beginning to understand how diverse microbes are. We will take a look into the diverse microbial world, from toxin-killing bacteria to zombie fungus that takes over ants, and learn more about their strange adaptations.In this activity, you will:
discuss general concepts of microbial adaptation; and
learn more about extreme adaptations in the microbial world by discussing unique bacteria, protists and fungi.
