    There are good microbes that are used in food, others that are used in medicine and more that are used to clean up your environment. There aren’t that many bad microbes, but they make you sick or cause rot and destruction. The ugly microbes can be quite scary and can make you or the things around you look very ugly indeed! Teaming with Microbes offers an alternative to this vicious circle, and details how to garden in a way that strengthens, rather than destroys, the soil food web. You'll discover that healthy soil is teeming with life--not just earthworms and insects, but a staggering multitude of bacteria, fungi, and other microorganisms.4/5(1).

      The Bacteria Book is a fun and informative introduction to a STEM subject that brings kids up-close to the big world of tiny science. With remarkable photography, kooky character illustrations, and lots of fun facts, this book uses real-life examples of microbiology in action to show how tiny microbes affect us in big ways. Germs live everywhere. You can find germs (microbes) in the air; on food, plants and animals; in soil and water — and on just about every other surface, including your body. Most germs won't harm you. Your immune system protects you against infectious agents.
