It is proved that there are not any obligate aerobes. As for the aerobic bacteria, they should be identified as the anaerobes able to respire by an aerobic way. The biological redox order is shown to meet the electrochemical rules: in the first place, there are reduced these compounds the standard electrode potential of which is higher.
