Comments P.238 left column bottom paragraph: "In general, shewanellae are members of the γ-Proteobacteria that are gram-negative rods 2–3 μm in length, 0.4–0.7 μm in diameter, and motile by a single polar flagellum (primary source). Most are easily cultured in the laboratory with general growth media after enrichment from environmental samples, and detailed enrichment procedures can be found elsewhere (ref 72)."
