  1. 1. Bacteria!
  2. 2. The Bacteria Cell <ul><li>Bacteria are EVERYWHERE! </li></ul><ul><li>And most bacteria are either harmless or helpful… </li></ul><ul><li>Bacteria are prokaryotic – </li></ul><ul><li>… which means…? </li></ul><ul><li>Prokaryotic cells can accomplish all the tasks necessary for life. </li></ul>
  3. 3. Bacteria Shapes <ul><li>Bacteria come in 3 different shapes: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Spherical </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Rod-like </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Spiral </li></ul></ul>
  4. 4. Bacteria Structure <ul><li>Bacteria are cells, too. </li></ul><ul><li>They have: </li></ul><ul><li>A cell wall </li></ul><ul><li>A cell membrane </li></ul><ul><li>Cytoplasm </li></ul><ul><li>Genetic Material </li></ul><ul><li>Flagella/Cilia </li></ul><ul><li>They don’t have: </li></ul><ul><li>A nucleus…remember, they are prokaryotic </li></ul>
  5. 5. Two Kingdoms of Bacteria <ul><li>Archaebacteria </li></ul><ul><li>These are ancient bacteria </li></ul><ul><li>They exist in extreme environments </li></ul><ul><li>They are anaerobic </li></ul><ul><li>Eubacteria </li></ul><ul><li>Live everywhere that archaebacteria don’t </li></ul><ul><li>(like on and in you!) </li></ul><ul><li>Some are autotrophic and some are heterotrophic </li></ul>San Francisco Bay Salt Ponds A variety of eubacteria
