Comments P.1223 left column:"The Bacillus stearothermophilus strain (Table 1) was isolated from a fish-eucalyptus bark compost, and its temperature behavior was determined as described above by using a range of 30 to 80°C. The Proteus morganii strain was obtained from the University of Queensland, Australia. The temperature range was 19 to 42°C. The last two strains listed in Table 1 were examined by Andrew Ball (B.Sc.[Hons] thesis, University of Tasmania, Hobart, Tasmania, Australia, 1980) using techniques already described (ref 6). In addition to [investigators'] original growth curves (Table 1), [they] also used the previously published data of Mohr and Krawiec (ref 4) for 12 strains of bacteria (Table 2 BNID 112405) and the previously published data of Reichardt and Morita (ref 7) for a psychrotrophic strain of Cytophaga johnsonae (Table 3 BNID 112406)."
