John et al.
We often cite Standard Methods for Water and Wastewater - assuming its authors
have done the needed research of the literature.
I ahve a recent observation on R2A medium that i found troubling. Standard
methods says it may be incubated at 35C as well as at a lowet temp and one lab
I recently visited had assumed this meant the bugs grew faster.
However, i recently came across Geldreich's original description of R2A and saw
the growth plots clearly showing one to almost 2 log differneces between 35 and
28C incubation times.
Does any of you have data saying the yields are more similar or justifying 35C?
I found nothing at PubMed.
