The specific growth rates at various temperatures of 12 bacterial species were measured and plotted as Arrhenius profiles. Temperature characteristics and optimum temperatures for maximum specific growth rates were estimated from these curves. The data reveal that one of two forms of the Arrhenius profile is characteristic of each bacterium: one curve is a simple smooth curve with a single predominant slope at sub-optimum temperatures; the other is a more complex curve with two distinct slopes… CONTINUE READING
