Abstract

“Ready access to the data of microbiology is provided in this Handbook.” With this objective in mind the authors have compiled an impressive mass of information and arranged it in convenient tabular form.

Table 1 contains characteristics of approximately 150 species of bacteria and fungi of medical and industrial importance. The organisms are listed alphabetically by genus and the table includes data on taxonomy, microscopic and cultural characteristics, biochemical reactions, and metabolic products. Industrial uses of the organism are included when applicable.

Valuable information is also provided in the tables on temperature conversions; saturated steam temperatures; most probable numbers, preparation and range of hydrogen-ion indicators; preparation of test dilutions; antigenic formulae of the and ; determination of phenol coefficients; and species differentiation within many important genera.

In some instances, however, the book falls short of obviating the necessity for reference to other sources of information.
