Abstract

SUMMARY: Valuable information, which could be obtained from the nutritional tests used to classify yeasts, is lost in two ways. (i) Tests of ability to grow on organic compounds are only done semi-aerobically; this makes many results difficult to interpret. (ii) Many results remain unpublished because information on individual strains is condensed into a description of the species.

Suggestions are made for improving test methods, collating existing results and analysing associations between the results of different tests so that a comprehensive comparative study of yeast nutrition may be built up.
