Klebsiella pneumoniae isolated from pulp mills was compared to clinical isolates of K. pneumoniae. Cultures found to be identical in biochemical reaction in various media and conformed to the recognized schemes of classification of K. pneumoniae. Nucleic acid base composition comparison of these isolates showed that all exhibited a G+C% base composition of 56% + or - 1.4%, and all cultures examined fell within this range. A study of the heterologous binding capability between DNAs of these cultures revealed that isolates from both the environment and pathogenic reference had a base sequence from 80 to 100% in common. This confirms the earlier results that pulp mill isolates are the same as clinical isolates.
