Hi, i have measured the number of species of both bacteria and fungi in pond water and found that bacteria species are more common. Could anyone tell me why? This would be a great help!

What about living conditions? Bacteria grow almost everywhere, but fungi are more demanding.
Cis or trans? That's what matters.

A pond contains three basic types of bacteria, each of which contains several different micro-organisms. While some types of bacteria are harmful, most are beneficial to the wildlife and plant life that inhabit ponds. Without certain types of bacteria, ponds would become overridden by algae and other fungi, which would render their water cloudy and putrid. The right balance of bacteria helps to maintain optimal life-supporting conditions in ponds.
