Tend to spread outward and across larger areas.
Grow to a certain size and stop and limited in their diameter.
Fuzzy and fluffy or powdery in appearance.
Impart a "moldy" odor to their substrates.
In some Gram-positive bacteria glycerol–teichoic acids are bound to membrane lipids
The envelope of Gram- negative cells is a far more complicated structure than Gram +ve cells.
Under the light microscope Gram-negative cells appear purple while Gram-positive cells are red.
The Gram-positive cell wall consists primarily of a single type of molecule
The stationary phase,
Bacteria cannot grow unless oxygen is present in their immediate atmosphere,
A large number of Bacteria can grow in both in the presence and absence of oxygen
None of the choices
Bacteria that inhibited in the presence of oxygen, this gas behaving almost as an intoxicant
Bacterial biofilms are virtually difficult to eliminate with antibiotics or biocides.
In the human body the resident cells within the biofilm are not exposed to attack by the immune system
Enveloping of the attached cells in EPS.
Biofilm formation usually begins with pioneer cells attaching to a surface

Nonfimbriated (nonpiliated) strains of N. gonorrhoeae
Bile salts that contain surfactants
Inhalation of tobacco smoke
The possession of surface adhesins
Extreme acidity and presence of digestive enzymes
