    Nutrients are frequently in low supply in nature.
     The distribution of nutrients is rarely uniform through out an environment.
     Microbes in nature rarely exist in pure culture, and must compete for resources.
     All of the above are reasons.
     More than one of the above, but not all, are a reason.
