The compilation of the formulae and methods of preparation of the media and substrata described in the literature for the support of growth of microorganisms is a task that has seemed of sufficient practical importance to warrant its being undertaken by the bacteriological laboratories of the college. In order that these data, with reference to each medium, and an elaborate system of cross indices might be prepared, it was necessary to have some definite scheme of classification. A review of the literature shows that several types of classification for media have been suggested by different authors.
