Abstract

The objective of this research is to analyse the effect of temperature on microorganism growth. It
is important to note that both low and high temperatures influence the growth of microorganisms
and therefore it is necessary to know the lower and upper limits and finding out at which
temperature the microorganisms grow best. The microorganisms may not grow regardless of
being provided with all the necessary nutritional requirements, moisture, oxygen and right
environment to thrive in if the temperatures (3, 20, 25, and 30°C) is not favourable for their
growth. If the temperatures are below optimum then the microorganisms will have reduced
growth, and the same applies to temperatures above optimum. The optimum temperature for the
growth of these microorganisms ranges from 23-26°C.
