A Simplified Technique for the Routine Cultivation of Anaerobic Bacteria
Anaerobic bacteria are as common and widespread in nature as aerobic bacteria. In some natural habitats, they outnumber the aerobes by several orders of magnitude. But studies on the anaerobes have always lagged behind those on aerobic organisms mainly because of technical difficulties and inconveniences.
