  • Microbes occupy all of our body surfaces, including the skin, gut, and mucous membranes.
  • The most significant effect of the microorganisms on earth is their ability to recycle the primary elements that make up all living systems, especially carbon (C), oxygen (O) and nitrogen (N). Different forms of carbon and nitrogen are needed as nutrients by different types of organisms.
