Abstract

PLATE I

THE REQUIREMENT of some brucellae, pneumococci and gonococci for carbon dioxide is well established. A strain of dependent on CO for characteristic growth was first recorded by Hale (1951) and subsequently there have been other reports of staphylococci with similar requirements (Thomas, 1977). This is a feature not usually associated with members of the Enterobacteriacae; however, we reported strains of that needed CO for growth (Barker, Brookes and Johnson, 1978) and a strain of with this requirement was described by Eykyn and Phillips (1978).

This paper describes the growth of a variety of Klebsiellae in air with added CO and its relevance to the isolation and recognition of these organisms in the laboratory.
