Description based on print version record.
Summary:The estimate for the number of existing microbial species is 105 - 106, but only some thousands have been isolated in pure culture and described. The principal reason for this gigantic disparity is that, mysteriously, over 99% of all environmental microorganisms refuse to grow in the laboratory.
