ecological environment bacterial survival mode bacterial community structure ecological function

Bacteria in the environment live in communities with multiple survival modes. Bacteria in a suitable environment grow rapidly through cooperation, whereas nutrient consumption cause competition. Bacterial communities are vulnerable to the impact of the external environment, and the special functional gene can also change the community structure. Bacterial communities have important ecological functions in the environment and they are both complex and valuable. This paper, by combining the work of our group with literature, tried to elaborate on bacterial survival modes as well as the formation and ecological function of bacterial communities, to provide a reference for the study of bacterial community and to look into the future direction of this field of research.
