Question:
what's the suitable medium for isolating Thiobacillus ferooxidans from the nature ?



Replies:
The website

http://www.mines.edu/fs_home/jhoran/ch126/thiobaci.htm

gives a concise overview of the bacteriology of T. ferrooxidans. Unfortunatley the first reference cited does not exist, but the others are ok. They will direct you to selective isolation media.
