    All told, not a great lecture, but not bad It s worth listening to if you know less than I did going in If you know , this is probably a waste of your time Update I keep finding myself referring back to this thinking of what I learned I m not sure what put me off so badly, but I obviously got a lot out of it than I realized at first, so I m bumping it up a star end update My last biology course was 40 years ago, so I started this with a lot of questions I ve kept up with this branch of science only through occasional articles general reading A lot has changed since my school days I think we only had the plant animal kingdoms no domains in our text books, but were told about higher other classifications Bacteria were all lumped in one group at that time possibly a domain of their own but there has been so many changes over the years that I can t really recall Domains sometimes part of empires have been added maybe for eukaryotes, bacteria, archaea, possibly viruses I recently read an article about 7 or 8 ...

    Extremely fascinating throughout Did you know 10% of our body weight is bacteria I ve been boring my family with bacteria and biome facts now for weeks I don t think that has enticed any of them to read it, though.


  8. says:

    This was interesting but frustratingly incomplete I learned a lot about bacterial metabolism, but only learned about, say, one mode of bacterial locomotion This was based so much on the author s field guide to bacteria, and as a result I learned an outsized amount about how to recognize certain types of bacteria by their appearance and texture, but lit...

    If, like me, you took high school biology before DNA sequencing became standard practice then just about everything you learned is obsolete This is a great basic overview of the new microbiology Her enthusiasm is wonderful, and slight digressions very colorful and enriching, addin...
