Summary

24 strains ofBacillus thuringiensis type are studied by the determination of 35 cultural and biochemical characters. About 10 different biochmeical characters make it possible to classify these strains into six major biochemical groups represented by one or two type-strains (biotypes). On the other hand, the study of these 24 strains by the flagellate agglutination reaction also leads to six serological groups, each one provided with a different H antigen, and which fit perfectly the biochemical classification. This fact emphasizes the validity of this latter classification and, for the first time, brings in a double biochemicals-serological basis for the classification of theB. thuringiensis type strains.
