SUMMARY: The effect of sodium chloride on the multiplication of four freshwater and three salt-water strains of sulphate-reducing bacteria was examined by determining the numbers of organisms in a known population which were viable in media of unfamiliar NaCl concentrations. The salt-water strains all produced variants viable at high NaCl concentrations; a population able to multiply in 1 %-10 % NaCl was obtained by ‘training’ one salt-water strain. They differed, however, in the frequency with… CONTINUE READING
