<I need to know the optimal growth temperatures of a number of various
microorganisms (bacteria, archaea and microscopic fungi). Is there a
catalogue or a reference book that contains this? I tried various
microorganism catalogues that are accessible online on the Internet, but
they only contain suggestions for growing the cultures in laboratories.
If anybody knows a better source please tell me about it. Actually I
would like to select thermophilic and psychrophilic organisms from a
large list of organisms. >
And these "how to grow in the lab" suggestions don't specify
temperatures? Sounds a bit strange to me, but okay. For the bacteria and
archaea, look up each organism you want in Bergey's Manual of Systematic
Bacteriology. Hopefully someone else in here can help you with the fungi.
"Is there a mycologist in the house?" ;-) But happy hunting, anyway!
Mycelium is Yourcelium. :-)
