Abstract

SUMMARY: Enrichment cultures of mesophilic sulphate-reducing bacteria were readily obtained from soils, mud and corrosion products which had been heated to 90°, yet pure cultures of were killed by heating to 60° even when absorbed on dried sterilized soil. Examination of the populations from heated samples revealed exclusively organisms resembling ; unheated samples contained either alone or both and . The belief that sporulates is questioned.
