A total of 200 Klebsiella pneumoniae, isolates of human clinical and environmental sources were tested for Faecal coliform (FC) response, growth at 10C, In dole production and pectin liquefaction as an aid in differenciating environment from non-environmental Klebsiella pneumoniae, on the basis of these tests five main groups were discerned. 75 percent of the clinical isolates and 66 percent of environmental isolates were FC positive and showed no growth at 10C. 26 percent of clinical and 41 percent of the environmental strains produced indole, 5 percent of the clinical and 15 percent of the environmental strains liquefied pectin. An inverse relationship was observed between FC response and growth at 10C in all the strains. The strains of clinical origin and those isolated from hospital environment showed a greater frequency of resistance than the strains from flowers, water and soil.
