Abstract

SUMMARY: A method for the preparation of carbon replicas of Bacillus spores is described. Micrographs of these replicas reveal much more of the surface detail than direct electron micrographs. Rib formations were found on five different species and the micrographs obtained suggest that the sculpturing varies according to the species.
