The heat resistance of bacterial spores and its relationship to the contraction of the forespore protoplasm during sporulation

Abstract

The heat resistance of spores of 11 bacterial species is shown to correlate with the average decrease in volume of the protoplasm of spores that occurs during sporulation and that is measured from the stage in the development of the forespore at which the cortex can first be observed.
