Abstract:

The temperature interphase between bacterial mesophilism and thermophilism has been identified as 46 C to 48 C. Facultative thermophiles growing in the mesophilic range require a brief period of adaptation at interphase temperatures before gaining the capacity to initiate growth at thermophilic temperatures. Obligate mesophiles cannot grow in the thermophilic temperature range, but obligate thermophiles may show limited growth at temperatures as low as 41 C. Author
