A steady-state was established between a C. lividum and a Pseudomonas sp at a dilution rate of 0.27 hr^-1 when the growth limiting substrate was citrate. During both pure and mixed continuous culture studies, the C. lividum adhered to the wall of the chemostat and the Pseudomonas showed no such tendency visually. This system offers a convenient model for studying the importance of bacterial adherence to certain aquatic ecosystems such as river sediments and sewage treatment.
This study was supported by the Office of Water Resources Research U.S. Department of the Interior under Project Number A-021-OHIO
