Many surfaces on the human body are continually exposed to microorganisms in the external environment and become colonized before or shortly after birth with a normal resident microbiota, the collection of microorganisms in a particular environment, which matures over time and persists throughout life. These nonsterile surfaces include the skin, mucous membranes, lower gastrointestinal tract, upper respiratory system, and anterior urethra. The community of microorganisms harbored in or on these sites is a highly complex mixture that varies in composition depending on nutrient availability, moisture, temperature, pH, and other environmental conditions. The composition of the normal microbiota can also be affected by host factors such as age, nutrition, and immune status.
