Association of methanogenic bacteria with ovine rumen ciliates.


1. The frequency of association between methanogenic bacteria and ovine rumen ciliates was studied in the rumen fluid of a fistulated sheep. 2. A period of fasting and flushing of the rumen content with nitrogen resulted in a relatively high association, whereas the intake of food and flushing with hydrogen caused a detachment of the methanogenic bacteria from the ciliates. 3. The changes in the frequency of association can be correlated with the relative attribution to the H2 production by hydrogenogenic bacteria and rumen ciliates.
