 Title    Factors Affecting Growth of Sulfate-Reduc- ing Bacteria Isolated from Tropical Soil  
 Abstract    Sulfate-reducing bacteria (S R B) were isolated from soils around corroded pipelines and tanks. High num­ bers of the organisms occurred in areas closest to the corroded tanks and pipelines. Morphological types cor­ responding to rod, spirilloid, vibriod and coccoid were encountered. All the organisms utilized lactate as carbon and energy source. None could grow at temperatures higher than 40 °C. All the isolates grew at 1% (w/v) NaCl while none could grow at 8% (w/v) NaCl. All the isolates grew at pH 7 .0 -7 .5 . Growth was not recorded at pH below 5.5 and above 8.0. These factors may be useful in manipulating tropical soil environments to re­ duce activities of SR B in corrosion of pipelines and tanks.
