Abstract : Using the example of 12 species of cellulose-destroying bacteria of different systematic groups, it was demonstrated that the most sensitive to a high temperature are Vibrios, followed by myxobacteria of the genuses Sorangium and Promyxobacterium. Vegetative cells, particularly the microcysts of the genus Sporocytophaga, as well as fruit bodies of bacteria of the genus Sorangium, are most resistant to high temperatures. (Author)
