Collecting Soil Samples

Chitin's breakdown is a natural phenomenon. There are dozens of chitin-decomposing bacteria in the soil standing as keyfigures of the biogeochemical cycle. We have colleted soil samples from five different environments around Szeged to prove this phenomenon. The samples we gathered were from:
1.)the courtyard of our school
2.)the soil by a dogberry
3.)the bank of river Tisza
4.)the soil by an ash
5.)from a flowerbed in a park
Thereafter we made soil solutions out of them to induce them on agar contained colloidal chitin in order to produce bacterium cultures.
