The suggestion that micro-organisms are responsible for the decomposition of cellulose in the alimentary canal (Wildt, 1874; Zuntz, 1879; Duclaux, 1882) arose from the proof (Henneberg & Stohmann, 1860-4) that it is, in fact, cellulose which disappears during the pa#sage of crude fibre through the animal (Haubner, 1855). Tappeiner (1882, 1883, 1884, 1888), who was the first to investigate the fate of cellulose, found that paper pulp and cotton wool, when incubated under anaerobic conditions… CONTINUE READING
