  13. ecology
    tolerable temperatures for microorganism growth
  14. taxonomy
    • classifications
    • Kingdom, Phylum, Class, Order, Family, Genus, Species
  15. bioremediation
    process of microorganisms to degrade waste
  16. Robert Hooke
    • discovered microscope/lens
    • did not see living thing
  17. Antonio Van Leeuwenhoek
    1st to see living thing with microscope
  18. spontaneous generation
    belief that life could orginate from non-living matter
  19. Francesco Redi
    • disproved spontaneous generation
    • - maggot was unable to grow on meat if meat was covered with gauze
  20. Schwann
    • disproved spontaneous theory
    • allowed air to enter flask after passing through heated tube
    • sterile wool
  21. Louis Pasteur
    • demonstrated that microorganisms were present in air
    • - applied heat to flask bending neck and trapping microorganisms in air
    • -25C optimum temp

    - showed disease of silkworms was caused by protozoans

    - developed vaccines for chicken cholera, anthrax, and rabies
  22. Fermentation
    production of alcohol by breakdown of carbohydrates
  23. Agostino Bass
    showed that silkworm disease was caused by fungus
  24. Charles Chamberland
    identified virus as disease-causing agents

    ex. (TMV) Tobacco Mosaic Virus

    • first antiseptic in surgery
  27. Robert Koch
    1st to classify bacteria microorganism specificity
  28. Koch's Postulates
    1.) etiological - causative agent must be present in all affected organisms

    2.) agent - isolated from cultured in pure form

    3.) cultured agent - introduced to healthy agent && cause same disease

    4.) same causative agent - must be able to be removed from newly infected agent and cause disease
  29. Virulent strains not cultured in artificial media
