Flora (microbiology)

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

In microbiologyflora (pluralfloras or floræ) refers to the collective bacteria and other microorganisms in an ecosystem(usually in human and animal hosts or in a single part of its body). While the term microflora is widely used, it is technically a misnomer since the word root flora pertains to plants. Some textbooks now use the term microbiota.
