In 12 Netherlands soil samples, in two successive analyses carried out in the autumn of 1952, the author has isolated up to 105 cultures of yeasts to be classified under the following species:Kloeckera apiculata, Torulopsis inconspicua, Torulopsis pulcherrima, Candida Guilliermondii, Rhodotorula mucilaginosa, Aureobasidium pullulans, Hansenula saturnus,(More)
A new species of Torulaspora is described; it was isolated from some Swedish soils. This species is named Torulaspora nilssoni nov. spec. [in honour of Prof. Ragnar Nilsson (director of Institute of Microbiology, Royal Agriculture College of Sweden, Uppsala 7) and his assistant Dr. Per Eric Nilsson].
On a étudié la répartition géographique des différentes espèces de levures intervenant dans la fermentation des vins italiens. L’influence du climat a été démontrée: des espèces fréquentes dans certaines régions sont absentes dans d’autres. On a comparé, à celui des moûts oenologiques, l’assortiment des levures présentes dans un moût de raisin de table(More)
Investigations of yeasts from 38 U.S.A. soils samples show the occurrence of 22 different species (16 sporogenous and 6 asporogenous). The most widespread species were Pichia fermentans and Hansenula anomala. The other isolated species were Saccharomyces ellipsoideus, Torulaspora delbrueckii, Pichia membranefaciens, Saccharomyces smittii, Saccharomyces(More)
The examination of a total of 98 yeast cultures collected from the buds, the open flowers and the host animals of 8 different species of plants and from the related soils of the vessels in a greenhouse, has demonstrated the presence of 13 different yeasts, including 3 sporogenous and 10 asporogenous species. The more frequent species were: Torulopsis(More)
