Comments P.348 2nd paragraph: "Results published in 1965 by [primary source] Herbert et al. (1965), and later confirmed by Bauer and coworkers in 1974–1976 (primary sources Bauer and Shiloach, 1974: Shiloach and Bauer, 1975: Bauer and Ziv, 1976), indicate that the yield-constant for oxygen of an E. coli w strain growing on glucose as a carbon source is close to 1 (1 g of oxygen is needed for the production of 1.06 g of E. coli biomass)."
