These colonies are called colony forming unit (CFU). This method has many limitations since it only shows the number of living bacteria. Also, due to the different arrangements, not all colonies consists of a single bacterium. However, with calculations we can count the number of single
Of the 108 Nobel Prize recipients in the Physiology or Medicine categories, 96 have used animal models in their research. These recipients were able to display these models because of their testing on the certain animals. Many of these prize winners have inspired others to test animals to make medical advancements. Animals should be continued to be used in research testing because it leads to more vaccinations, it leads to a better economy, and has led to many awards an advancements. As stated above, animals should be continued to be used in research testing because it leads to more vaccinations for humans and animals.
Bacteria is one of the first life forms that appeared on Earth, and that today lives essentially in all environments of the world whether an individual is aware or not. It takes many different shapes, but the most common are spiral, rod and spheres.

The brief extinction of the Bay Checkerspot Butterfly was a chain reaction of the emissions released by thousands of cars that drive on highway 280 everyday, that caused the growth of certain grasses, which covered the natural wildflowers that sustain the population of the butterflies. Likewise, “the globalization of hamburgers has helped destroy ecosystems and encouraged methane-producing cattle breeding” (Lechner 262). Although globalization is a huge factor in most environmental issues, it was useful in efforts to reduce the amount of environmental impacts and issues we are facing around the world. Because of globalization, “western countries had grown wealthy enough in the 1960’s to be able to afford focusing on environmental problems as a prime “post-material” priority” (252). Subsequently, many INGO’s were formed for conservation efforts, and a new political party, the Green Party, emerged from several countries.
The Europeans were very ethnocentric and believed that the American epidemics were God’s punishment for those refusing convert to Christianity (Shi, Tindall 27). The old world and Europeans benefited the most during the Columbian Exchange. The new world introduced them to new crops that would later become staple foods in their diets. New main foods include maize and potatoes. They will contribute to the increase in Europe’s population.
The Spanish and English were relatively successful in the New World in that the trade economy grew, travel allowed for expansion, and new ideas were spread throughout the globe. However, along with the spread of new ideas came the spread of diseases, expansion resulted in the destruction of numerous cultures and the growth of the trade economy was disastrous for natives.

The Spanish conquering of the Aztec Empire in 1521 inspired a chain of events, and they were able to take Aztec gold and land which helped the Spanish expand their country and economy. Similarly, the creation in colonies in North America by England resulted in wealth from crops such
