Bacterial morphology is extremely diverse. Specific shapes are the result of adaptive pressures causing effective bacterial fitness. The shape affects the significant biological functions which include nutrient acquisition, dispersion, motility, stress resistance and interactions with other entities. Ultimately, the bacterial morphology is dictated by the net-like peptidoglycan (PG) sacculus.
