Resource: Appendix A
Examine cell division in bacteria to determine how it relates to growth.
Complete Appendix A located on the student website to explain the following in your own words:
- The phases of growth in a bacterial culture
- Methods used to measure bacterial growth
- Physical and nutritional factors affecting bacterial growth
- The processes of sporulation
- The function of bacterial endospores
Appendix A – Cell Division in Bacteria
After reading Ch. 6 in Microbiology: Principles and Explorations, fill in the following matrix.
|List the four phases of bacterial growth and briefly describe what happens in each phase.|
|List and describe at least four methods used to measure bacterial growth.|
|List at least two physical factors that influence bacterial cell growth. Briefly describe how bacterial growth responds to changes in those factors.|
|List at least two nutritional factors that influence bacterial cell growth. Briefly describe how bacterial growth responds to changes in those factors.|
|List and describe at least two events that occur during the process of endospore formation (sporulation).
Note: Visit Chapter 6 of Microbiology: Principles and Explorations in WileyPlusto view the Endospore Formation Animation found under the Animated Concepts Section.
