- 53 Downloads
Forty-one cultures degrading and assimilating oxalate were isolated from chicken dung. Characterization indicated six different types. One of these belonged to the genusAlcaligenes hitherto never reported to degrade oxalate. Three groups ofPseudomonas strains differed physiologically from strains already known.
