From the plant pathologist's viewpoint, more knowledge of the existence of physiological strains of Bacillus amylovorus would be of value. Stewart after a study of the organism in culture calls attention to slight variations in the fermentation reactions of the nine different isolated cultures with which he worked. Therefore, at the suggestion of Dr. H. E. Thomas of Cornell University, N. Y., this work was undertaken in an effort to contribute this information. The portion on acid tolerance has been checked in the laboratories of the State University of Iowa through the courtesy of Drs. G. Hansmann and W. F. Loehwing.
