Bacteria (Listeni/bækˈtɪəriə/; singular: bacterium) constitute a lairge domain or kinrick o prokaryotic microorganisms. Typically a few micrometres in length, bacteria hae a wide range o shapes, rangin frae spheres tae rods an spirals. Bacteria inhabit soil, watter, acidic het springs, radioactive waste,[4] an the deep portions o Yird's crust. Bacteria an aa live in plants, animals (see symbiosis), an hae flourished in manned space vehicles.[5]
