Abstract

SUMMARY

Six hundred and seventy-seven strains of coagulase-negative Micrococcaceae isolated from human and animal sources were classified by Baird-Parker's (1963) system. The human strains showed a predominance of staphylococci in the main clinical categories, although strains causing primary urinary-tract infections in otherwise healthy women were nearly all allocated to subgroup 3. Organisms isolated from the fur and skin of farm and zoo animals were predominantly micrococci, 170 out of 263 strains being allocated to subgroup 5. The generic separation of staphylococci from micrococci is briefly discussed.
