Microbes, or microorganisms, are extremely small, microscopic organisms that can live almost anywhere on Earth. Microbes are the most diverse group of living organisms Рmore diverse than plants, animals, and insects! Despite the wide variety of microbes that exist, we have only documented a small fraction of the total number of microorganisms on Earth. The goal of this project to document the diversity of microorganisms in Prince Edward County.
