Abstract

SUMMARY

Eighty-five strains of aerobic microbes capable of gliding on solid substrata have been isolated from samples of marine and freshwater mud and sand collected in various localities around the world. Each strain has been characterized in about 40 tests by a number of morphological, nutritional, physiological and biochemical features.
