Abstract

SUMMARY

Twenty media have been developed that have proved particularly useful for isolation and characterization of myxobacters from a northern freshwater eutrophic lake. Formulae are given and special uses of each discussed. In most cases the media described have not previously been used. Some media (such as peptonized milk agar (PMA)) have proved useful because well adapted to growth of most species. Other media are important in determining the purity of cultures, particularly for detecting contaminating eubacteria. Certain media stimulate the development of myxangia (so-called “fruiting bodies” of myxobacters). Many formulae are primarily useful in differentiation and identification of species.
