Solar salterns, based on a multi-pond system, give a discontinuous gradient of salt concentrations. The heterotrophic bacterial populations of ponds containing from 10% salt to saturation have been studied. Saltern samples were spread on agar plates containing different media for halophilic bacteria and one medium made with water of the pond plus nutrients. Replica plating was done to determine the salt range for growth of the colonies. We studied 150 strains to determine the salt spectra of… CONTINUE READING
