Aquatic Microbiology (Coursework Sample)
Explored the fascinating field of aquatic microbiology, investigating microorganisms in freshwater and marine environments. Sample involved studying microbial diversity, nutrient cycling, and water quality parameters. Utilized DNA sequencing and microscopy techniques to analyze microbial communities and their ecological roles."source..
Aquatic microbiology is the study of microorganisms and their activities in fresh and marine water including rivers, lakes, springs and sea.
It is the study of microorganism’s viruses, bacteria, algae, protozoa and microscopic fungi which inhabit these natural waters. Some of these microorganisms are indigenous to natural bodies of water other are entering to water from soil or from industrial or domestic wastes.
Aquatic microorganisms and their activities have great importance in many ways.
1 They may affect human health and other animal life. They are responsible for many diseases like typhoid, cholera, dysentery, campylobacter enteritis.
2 They occupy a high position in food chain by providing rich nourishment for the next higher level of aquatic life.
3 They are instrumental in the chain of biochemical reactions which involve recycling of element. e.g. mineralization of organic compounds i.e. the dissimilation of organic compounds to carbon dioxide , water and various inorganic salts
4 The natural water is major food source.
