Life Science Chapter 10 - Song Lyrics

Bacteria Frontiers

Plants need nitrogen and they can only get it through bacteria, not through the air.
Bacteria recycle dead plants on the ground by decomposing them.

Bacteria are prokaryotes -
single celled organisms that don’t
have nuclei.
They reproduce by
binary fission
which then divides
the cell into two.
And when times are tough
bacteria can grow into
endospores,
which can survive for
millions of years before
they grow once more!

Plants need nitrogen and they can only get it through bacteria, not through the air.
Bacteria recycle dead plants on the ground by decomposing them.
Genetically engineered bacteria can make helpful medicine.
Bacteria recycle dead plants on the ground by decomposing them.

A microscopic particle
that invades a cell
and destroys it, it a virus.
Well, it’s difficult to say
whether viruses are alive ‘cos they
have nucleic acids
and reproduce
but they need their host
to survive. And also
they don’t grow, breathe,
or do many other things
that living organisms do to be living!

Plants need nitrogen and they can only get it through bacteria, not through the air.
Bacteria recycle dead plants on the ground by decomposing them.
Genetically engineered bacteria can make helpful medicine.
Bacteria recycle dead plants on the ground by decomposing them.
