Abstract

The primary objective of the brief (one week) 1979 summer field studies conducted in Yellowstone National Park was to collect samples of the pink filamentous bacterial masses growing at 80-90° C in two Yellowstone hot spring runoff channels (Octopus Spring and Artist's Paint-pots) for subsequent biochemical analysis. In addition, samples were also taken from the runoff channels for bacterial culture and isolation of extremely thermophilic bacteria (including actinomycetes) and some additional Yellowstone thermal areas were also surveyed for the presence of the pink filamentous bacterial masses.
