Abstract

The discovery, observation under the microscope and cultivation of human-associated anaerobes did not lag behind the discovery of aerobic bacteria. During the Golden Age of bacteriology, just before the turn of this century, investigators gave, in many cases, a reasonable description of these anaerobic microorganisms and indicated their importance as human and animal pathogens. Table 6.1 lists some of the more common anaerobic pathogenic bacteria, the source and the dates when they were discovered.
