Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - May 11, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta 38-THE LETHBHID0E HERALD May 1974 Ask Andy BAPTEIUA Andy sends a complete 10- volume set of the Merit Students Encyclopedia to Sam age of for his question. Are bacteria classed as plants or None of the scientists believe that bacteria should be classified in the animal and some suspect that the tiny organisms are not plants either. some classify them as plants and some place them in an in- between kingdom of their own But let's not blame the experts for this confusion After the average bacterium measures only a couple of microns or so and there are microns to the inch Bacteria come in hundreds of different varieties and together they outnumber all other living things in the world They thrive everywhere from the deep orean to miles up in the atmosphere. There are about 100 bacteria in the average cubic foot of ordinary air. Wherever we we cannot escape them and neither can anything else on the earth The trouble in studying and classifying the bacteria is their infinitesimal size Usually they are measured by the micron Most of the bacteria types range between half a micron and ten microns Their various shapes may be squiggles or round balls or sausages Their life styles may be friendly or harmful to though most types neither help nor harm us Not so long almost all scientists classified bacteria as mini-fungi of the plant kingdom Some still do. Others classify them in a group called in between the plant and animal kingdoms This is because bacteria have certain plant features and certain animal features These single-celled organisms dwell in a realm of their own. though biologists suspect that some may have descended from plants and some from animals In any a bacterium is a single living rell The busy cytoplasm of the living cell is encased in a thin membrane and usually protected by a sturdy cell wall The outer shell may or may not have a slimy cover to protect the cell from corrosive chemicals A few bacteria have hairy tails called which they wave to swim through the water they cannot be which can neither swim nor walk. Most bacteria multiply by dividing into a pair of duplicates So do certain simplified though this method of reproduction is not typical of the animal kingdom Bacteria have another feature which is unknown in either the plant or animal kingdoms All living cells are governed by the biochemical which is present in the cell nucleus. In plants and the nucleus is contained in a special membrane A bacterium has but one long DNA molecule and the nucleus has no membrane Maybe the majority of scientists now classify the bacteria in the Protista between plants and animals. The various types are grouped according to their shapes. A sphere type is a coccus bacterium A squiggly rod may be a spirillum or a spirochete. A straight rod or sausage-shaped bacterium is rated as a bacillus Some of the cocci and bacilli cause but the spirilla types tend to be harmless to humans Your horoscope lyJniwDixon Andy sends a seven-volume set of the Chronicles of Narnia to Leslie age of for her How do they tell what the weather will be Maybe you think that the weatherman just guesses what tomorrow's weather is likely to be. Not at all Teams of experts work behind the scenes to find these answers. For one the weather always comes from some place. Tomorrow's weather for Florida may be on its way from Texas or perhaps from out in the ocean Weather ships and planes send all this information to central weather headquarters. There the experts mark all these farflung weather reports on a map Sometimes they see a hurricane heading your way They can tell when to expect it from which way and how fast it is moving perhaps the farflung reports show that a spell of nice sunny weather is travelling your way and is expected to arrive later in the day. This is called weather forecasting and hundreds of people work behind the scenes to gather the information QuMtlons asked by chil- dren of Herald readers should be mailed to Ask P.O. Box.
