Monotrichous Bacteria | Monotrichous Flagellum Structure & Functions

Monotrichous Bacteria Flagellum Bacteria can swim in order to move around in their natural environment and to locate other sources of food. One way that bacteria do this is by using a flagellum, which is a long, thin fiber that protrudes from the cell. The flagellum is always composed of one or more bundles of…

Definition & Chemoautotroph Examples

Chemoautotroph Autotrophs are organisms that can produce their own food with the help of sunlight, water, and minerals. Those that make their food by using chemicals found in their environment are called chemoautotrophs. Chemosynthesis is the process by which chemoautotrophs feed on chemicals like ammonia and sulfides. This is often because it uses inorganic compounds…

Examples of Autotrophs and Heterotrophs | Autotroph Vs Heterotroph

Examples of Autotrophs and Heterotrophs What is an Autotroph? Autotrophs are organisms that produce their own food, rather than ingesting other organisms as a source of nutrition. These organisms can come in various sizes and shapes. For example, plants are autotrophs, as they use photosynthesis to convert water and carbon dioxide into sugar. Molds are…
