We studied 630 bacterial strains isolated from surface waters and determined as enterococci on the basis of their growth on Slanetz-Bartley agar in typical colonies.

We identified 135 strains of E. foecium (21%), 115 E. faecalis (18%), 30 E. mundtii (5%), 27 E. hirae (4%), 22 E. casseliflavus (3%), 21 E. gallinarum (3%), 17 E. durans-E. hirae complex… CONTINUE READING
