Dominant normal flora are those organisms that are present in nearly 100 percent of the people in a larger quantity than most other normal floral microorganisms present there ...

staph aureus can also colonize there so as other microorganism but they are lesser in quantity than the Dominant ones and its prevalence is less common 30-40 % ..... this goes for any other microorganism that has a tendency to colonize in a particular area of the body and is not dominant
