The importance uses of micro organisms
Microbes are the foundation of life as they're everywhere. They are in the air we breathe, in the food we eat, in the ground we walk on and even inside us. There are more microbes on a person's hand than there are people on the entire earth.
Microorganisms are by dictionary definition 'microscopic organisms'. They do many jobs in an extremely wide field. Without them the planet wouldn't survive, as we know it. We couldn't digest our food, neither of course could animals, plants couldn't grow, rubbish and waste wouldn't decay and there would be a lot less oxygen in the air we breathe. Many people believe they were the very start of life, the start of evolution, which in turn led to humans, you and me. Microorganisms can be split into different groups, each with their own characteristics and 'jobs'. There are Bacteria, Fungi, Protozoan and Viruses (although some people believe that viruses are not alive.)
Bacteria are a simple one-cell organism, measuring on average from 0.3 to 2 microns (0.001mm) in diameter and can been seen through a microscope. They are classified as prokaryotes. Bacteria are amazing
