Abstract

SUMMARY

Criteria are suggested for the definition of “anaerobic cocci” as a general term to include all obligately anaerobic cocci. Such a definition draws a clear distinction between obligately anaerobic and micro-aerophilic strains and might form a basis both for characterisation of these organisms in the diagnostic laboratory and for further studies on their taxonomy and pathogenicity.
