Aerobic Cultivation

Aerobic bacteria require oxygen for survival. They are present in aerated moist soil containing organic carbon sources. There are two main types of aerobic bacteria: 1. The obligate aerobes that compulsorily require oxygen for deriving energy, growth, reproduction, and cellular respiration. These organisms do not survive in the absence of oxygen or flooding. 2. Facultative and Microaerophile aerobes: Facultative bacteria behave both aerobically and anaerobically, according to the prevailing conditions. In reduced environments, they acquire energy via anaerobic pathways, whereas in oxidative environments, they develop aerobic pathways. The microaerophilic bacteria require oxygen but in very low concentrations.
