Method p.423 right column 2nd paragraph:"With the aim of increasing [investigators'] knowledge on the macroscopic physiology of K. marxianus, [they] performed batch and continuous bioreactor cultivations of this yeast under welldefined conditions, and carried out measurements which allowed [them] quantitatively to describe growth, substrate consumption, metabolite formation, biomass composition and respiratory parameters, when glucose is used as the sole carbon source."
Comments p.428 right column 2nd paragraph:"The value obtained in the present work for growth at 0.1 h^-1 and 30°C compares well with that reported by Hensing (1994) for growth of the same strain on sucrose at 0.2 h^-1 at the same temperature (Table 1). However, Postma & van den Broek (1990), who cultivated the same strain under analogous conditions, obtained biomass yields of 0.43 g DW g^-1 glucose for steady-state chemostats at 0.1 and 0.2 h^-1, which are lower than the values obtained in the present work (Table 1)."
