Spore Research 1976, Volume II presents some of the papers reported at the meeting of British Spore Group held at the University of Leeds in December 1975. Organized into four headings, this volume focuses on aspects of heat and radiation resistance, germination, outgrowth, taxonomy, and ecology of spore formers. Specific discussions are given on the role of osmoregulation in the heat resistance, radiobiological evidence for the existence of dehydrated core in bacterial spores, some ecological implications of the diversity of spore-forming bacteria, and other topics relating to a specific spore former.
