Pathogen just means disease causing. Can be either virii or bacteria. I'd suggest looking in the dictionary for complete info.

I think a fungus and a protozoar can also be pathogen, not only a virus or a bacteria. But this is besides the point
Now, as Dave said, the dictionary may be the answer you are looking for

Pathogenic bacteria are "disease causing bacteria". Usually this is intended as causing diseases in human, although they can be harmless to many other orgnaisms. Or on the opposite, they can cause diseases in some animals and none in human, thus this expresion should be avoided and replaced by "bacteria pathogenic for [your favorite organism]".

I do not understand the question... And there many species of bacteria wich can be very different and yet cause diseases in the same organism, so I cannot answer to this.

Yes. A bacteria pathogenic for man can be a commensal for another organism. You probably have in your hut some bacteria that can cause some diseases and yet behave in your gut and provide you with usefull vitamins.

kandarp shah wrote: are those motile or nonmotile?????


Both... As I sais many species, some are motile, some not, and many pathologies to result from those.
