Bac*te"ri*um (&?;), n.; pl.
Bacteria (&?;). [NL., fr. Gr. bakth`rion,
bak`tron, a staff: cf. F. bactérie.]
(Biol.) A microscopic vegetable organism, belonging to the
class Algæ, usually in the form of a jointed rodlike filament, and
found in putrefying organic infusions. Bacteria are destitute of
chlorophyll, and are the smallest of microscopic organisms. They are very
widely diffused in nature, and multiply with marvelous rapidity, both by
fission and by spores. Certain species are active agents in fermentation,
while others appear to be the cause of certain infectious diseases. See
- Webster's Unabridged Dictionary (1913)
