The diversity of the micro-organisms, involved in the ammonification in natural waters was examined. The utilization of 41 organic compounds as the sole carbon and energy source was determined for 68 isolated strains. Within this group there was hardly any specificity for the substrate. A single linkage clustering demonstrated that the bacterial population which is able to take up amino acids in natural waters, is composed of a variety of micro-organisms which only slightly differ in their ability to utilize a variety of organic compounds.
