- Microbes were the only living things for most of the history of the
Earth. Over 3.5 billion years ago they began the process of transforming
this planet, making it habitable for those of us who came later. Bacteria
and protists remain the dominant players in most known ecosystems. The
numbers of bacteria and protists in the world is staggering - a single
teaspoonful of sea water contains millions of bacteria and thousands of
protists. The study of microbial communities is essential if we are to
understand and manage the world around us and such studies prepare us
for the exploration for life on other planets. This site has images of
microbes, classification schemes, descriptions of organisms, talks and
other educational resources to improve awareness of the biodiversity of
our microbial partners.
