Abstract

Summary: has been isolated from soil and air samples taken over a wide area in Africa, Australia and Europe (Parbery, 1969) and from fresh, estuarine and marine waters (Ahearn & Meyers, 1972). The organism’s biology and its potential for causing malfunctions in aircraft jet fuel systems were reviewed recently by Parbery (1971). A strain of C. resinae examined in our laboratory grows in deep culture on C to C -alkanes (Cooney & Proby, 1971). Other strains grow on C to C alkanes (Tanaka, Shimizu & Fukui, 1968; Iizuka, Lin & Iida, 1970; Parbery, 1970). Since C. resinae is widely distributed in hydrocarbon-rich and in hydrocarbon-poor environments, and since it may have the potential to degrade hydrocarbons which are refractory to other biological agents, it was of interest to determine the range of hydrocarbons which C. could use as sole source of energy and of organic carbon.
