Keywords: Fungi, Environmental, Water, Foods and Bacteria.


Bacteria grow when environmental conditions are favorable. If conditions are not suitable, growth occurs slowly or not at all, and death may even occur. Some factors that affect growth are water, food, oxygen, pH, and temperature. They grow in air, water, foods, and soil, as well as in plant and animal tissue. Any environment that can support life has its bacterial or fungal population.
