Abstract

SUMMARY

Twenty-two strains of Pseudomonas, representing 15 species, were examined by electron microscopy, utilizing the techniques of negative contrast staining and to a lesser extent shadowing and ultrathin sectioning. Fimbria-like appendages were found on cells of 12 strains, representing 8 species. Polar, fimbria-like filaments were observed on and Peritrichous filaments were found on and
